Looking for the right violin teacher for your child?
The Suzuki approach is the best way for young students to learn the violin as well as viola, cello, bass, piano, harp, recorder and guitar. Why is Suzuki's method of learning so successful? I like to put it this way:
'Teaching students the way they learn'
'You clearly are able to work equally well with all age and skill levels, and are able to provide your students with just the right challenges each step of the way.'
"I have been taking violin lessons since I was five. I can't even imagine my life without violin lessons with Mr. Ling."
'You command the respect of your students, without being harsh, disciplinary, or negative. My son felt very comfortable and relaxed in violin class, while having great respect for your knowledge and advice.'
