Our girls had the privilege of taking violin lessons from Kathy for several years. We live in southern New Hampshire and travelled for 2.5 hours each way in order to take lessons, but it was worth every mile. From the very first time we met her, we knew that Kathy had qualities that are very rare to find in a teacher, she is great with children, and we quickly grew to love her. She is fun, cheerful, and even playful at times. In addition to being a great violinist and an excellent teacher, she also has an incredible ability to inspire the students to strive for excellence, to stretch a little further, and to work a little harder.
Kathy's violin signature is a very warm and beautiful vibrato, and she poured herself into helping the girls achieve it in their music. We are so appreciative of the time and effort that Kathy gave our girls, it cannot be measured. It has opened opportunities and possibilities that otherwise would not have been available to them.
We can recommend Kathy with our whole hearts. She is much more than just a teacher. This is not just a job to her, but a mission; she will do everything she can to help your children become successful in music. She is truly a unique and wonderful individual, and we consider ourselves very blessed to have had the privilege of knowing and learning from her. On a scale from 1-10, she is definitely a 10!
Though we spent most of our time with Kathy, we had the wonderful opportunity to participate in an ensemble conducted by Glee. He is musically gifted and strives for perfection in every piece. We could not believe the beautiful music he was able to achieve from his "less-than-perfect" musicians. We benefited greatly from his instructions, excellent conducting skills, and wonderful sense of humor. We can highly recommend him as well.
This is a unique team!
