See what my students are saying:

“I’m an adult beginner with just a little over one year of violin lessons under my belt.  I stumbled upon Meghan’s instagram account whilst earnestly searching for “the best and fastest way to learn the violin”.  After following Meghan for a couple of weeks, I knew I wanted her to teach me what she knows.  I like how she breaks down the music pieces, explains the learning objectives and follows through with the teaching points with patience and care.  Her teaching style/technique is very effective; she knows when to push/challenge me and when to be more patient.  She keeps me focused and provides the accountability I need to stay on track and keep progressing.  In the short time we’ve been working together (2.5 months), my technique and sound has improved greatly.  I see myself working with Meghan for as long as I am able to play and afford the lessons.  While there’s no Holy Grail to learning the violin overnight, the perfect student/teacher matching is the next best thing!  I highly recommend Meghan to anyone considering taking up the violin.” ~ Maria S., New Jersey

” I have really enjoyed learning from Meghan. As a beginner adult violinist, I was a bit apprehensive about finding an instructor that was the right fit for me. Meghan has proven to be an excellent instructor! She has met the challenge of providing quality instruction to long distance learners through live video streaming, and it works great! If you are brand new to violin or a seasoned violinist, Meghan can take your playing to the next level in a fun, professional and motivating learning environment. ” ~Ryan W., Texas
