TESTIMONIALS

Ms. Lea is a great teacher! She always pushes me to the next level. I have learned so many new things: fingering, tuning, and vibrato. She teaches me how to play pieces written by famous composers like Bach. I would strongly recommend her as a teacher.”

Ms. Karpman has truly been a joy to have as a violin instructor. As a former violin student myself, I fully appreciate her commitment to ensuring each student is engaged and learning but at the same time having fun. Ms. Karpman’s excellent instructional style is attentive toward creating lesson plans directed at teaching new techniques without sacrificing the enjoyment of playing the violin. She is always kind and very supportive of her students. Most importantly, the children always look forward to their lesson and of course we enjoy listening to her play”.

Though Sarah just completed her first year of study with Ms. Lea, the improvement in knowledge and technique has been of one who has studied longer than that. Lessons are delivered in a professional and friendly manner. Ms. Lea will challenge my daughter by raising the bar, yet not causing her to be frustrated in the process. My daughter enjoys lesson days and looks forward to growing as a violin player! Thank you Lea for your work, flexibility and dedication!”

Studying violin with Lea is really enjoyable—she is a wonderful teacher. As someone over 40 who is studying music of any kind for the very first time in my life, I was nervous about starting lessons and not sure I would be able to learn how to read music, much less play the violin. Lea is always encouraging and endlessly patient and has helped me make successful progress. She is teaching me the foundations of music along with my violin studies and she’s helped build my confidence along with my technical ability. I am thoroughly enjoying my lessons.”
