"The group classes, in particular, are fun. I enjoy them a lot! Having the class as part of my routine has helped me a lot to get through the quarantine. So actually I think it’s a great time to start the class! You just practice and you get better. It just works that way!"
"In my view of music, for both the listener and the player, it’s a way to express yourself. And I think it’s very cool in times like this, to pick up something and learn something new like that, especially music. So, I mean I wouldn’t wait, personally. Just go for it."
"I think that the NYC Violin Studio is great with the adult group classes. That is pretty unique in today's day and age. It is a lot more common to find private lessons, so I think that's great. I progressed a lot faster than my expectations. It helped a lot to be doing group classes to take from others and learn and get advice. My friends and family are very impressed that I decided to pick up an instrument so late in life. They think it is pretty cool and they always ask me when they can hear me play! I think the teachers are great and that it is a great way to meet people. I would definitely recommend the NYC Violin Studio!"
"I cannot recommend NYC Violin Studio enough. I have been to other schools in NYC and this is by far the best. Scheduling is incredibly easy. If I needed to miss a class I could make it up on another date. The instruction is fantastic. I think the instructors understand that most of the students aren't planning on becoming concert violinists, so they focus on teaching interesting pieces while providing enough theory and technique to improve without completely overwhelming us. Truly top notch professionals who make the class fun!"
"Antoinette is not only a wonderful musician, she's a true teacher. She was endlessly patient with me and could always find a different way to explain or describe what I needed to do. She was always encouraging but never fake about praise, so when I got it, I knew I'd actually done something right--and if I didn't, she would simply work with me further on it until I did. I'm a teacher myself, so I recognize what it takes to be a good one--and Antoinette is not just good: she's excellent. I've never met better."
