What parents say about Mr. Freitag:

“Rolando Freitag has been my daughter’s violin teacher for the past five years. He is a deeply gifted teacher who brings an amazing blend of great discipline, wisdom, and humor to his work. My daughter adores him. He has inspired our daughter to engage this challenging instrument. He never coddles or infantilizes, but encourages her continually to rise to her growing capacities as a musician. I would recommend Mr. Freitag to anyone—child or adult—who wishes to learn the violin or viola. My daughter’s life will be forever touched by his gift, and we are so grateful.”

“Mr. Freitag’s teaching style evolved perfectly as my daughter progressed from a small beginner to a talented young adult. He is truly gifted at teaching and inspiring students of all ages and abilities. He is extremely creative, kind, talented, motivating, patient, precise, and demonstrates and expects precision. His teaching approach is comprehensive, consistent, and flexible. He is also an amazing musician!”

“… Mr. Freitag has taught both my children (ages 12 and 5) in their violin studies with utmost professionalism, genuine kindness, and refined technique. He is consistently encouraging while having the surgical precision to listen and observe difficulties in technique that a student may have. … I have observed tremendous growth in both of my children, most observable in my 5yr old because in the early years the improvement is significant. My 12yr old is at a level that is focused on highly refining her musical expression, while mastering very difficult technique. Mr. Freitag’s belief in both my kids’ ability to succeed makes their daily practice more fun than work because of the rewarding encouragement he consistently provides. Not the sugar-sweet sentiments which is false praise, but genuine acknowledgement of their effort and accomplishment. We’ve experienced many wonderful violin teachers in our musical journey, but there is something special when my own children constantly make positive comments about Mr. Freitag’s high expectations and his teaching. If you are reading this post with even the slightest curiosity, I encourage you to go and meet Rolando. Even if you don’t take lessons (but definitely should!), you will have met a wonderful person who happens to be a wonderful teacher. I nearly forgot to mention his violin & viola playing….. an absolute joy to hear!”
