My daughter has learned so much since she began playing the violin!  She has gained confidence.  Learning is getting easier.  The focus of class is really good for her.  We love violin!

If you want your child to enjoy lessons and stick with it, you want Erin.  My son has always enjoyed violin and flourished in music as a student of Erin's.  Thank you!
