This question of 'I’ll wait? 'Wait for what?' You know? We don’t know when these things are gonna be over. And so, from someone who teaches, you just got to transfer. It’s one of these things…you can wait. But you don’t know how long you’re gonna be waiting. As an artist, you’re always trying to find people to connect with. And now, because of the positive and beautiful things of the internet, and all these things, are what we’re talking about. If you look at it like that and use it to your advantage, you can really improve in things. I don’t feel like education is ever time wasted, whether it’s through the computer or in-person.


I highly recommend NYC Violin Studio. Antoinette is a very talented teacher and musician. I sometimes feel self conscious learning new things but she made me feel at ease and competent. And when we switched to online classes to social distance, she still managed to connect with her students and make it feel like we were a cohesive group. The class was one of the highlights of my week. I'm looking forward to the next semester.

A wonderful place for both those who want to learn the violin and those who wish to play with others! It is a rare treat to find a place that allows you to make music without already being a high-level player. Violinist and teacher Antoinette Ady has created a warm, friendly and exciting environment in which to learn and grow. She is an excellent violinist with great intonation and consistent focus on teaching. Always giving gentle tips when needed and never being overbearing. Her teaching style has taught me much more than other teachers who fall into two camps: 1) overly critical or, 2) overly permissive and failing to address major intonation issues or technique issues in an effort to be "nice" and essentially turn the student into a customer. This is where Antoinette Ady is different. She is not just here to patronize you and take your money. Antoinette is here to teach those who would like to learn privately, conduct those who wish to play in the student orchestra and bridge the gap between the two. I am a violinist and she made space for me and I couldn't be happier! NYC Violin Studio gets an A+.

Antoinette is an amazing teacher, super patient and really takes interest in her students. The semester end concert is so much fun where your fam and friends can see the progress you've made. Great group of people in a casual fun environment. If you, ever wanted to play violin this is the group to do it with!
