“As a past student of Ms. Chelsea she is a very fond person to be around and doesn’t make learning exasperating. I feel free, and confident that she will not judge me based on my trials and errors but rather instill self confidence. Ms. Chelsea is an excellent violin teacher who has great skills and teaching techniques to bring her lessons across. She has great patience and is always on time for her lessons.”
