What People Are Saying:

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!

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.

I really enjoyed the absolute beginner class! I learned so much (even though we switched to virtual classes midway due to covid) and really feel like I can keep up my learning. I was worried it would feel like I was really behind, but the class actually is for beginners so there was really no one who is way above you. That being said if you are like me and are nervous in groups, it can still feel intimidating to play in front of everyone.
