Note: I  got this great email from the mother of a former student.  I love hearing positive things from my students and parents – it’s always a day-brightener!  I want to share these successes with you]

“My daughter began taking violin lessons with Florie at the age of 5. At that time, she was quite shy and Florie was great at creating a  comfortable atmosphere allowing her to have fun while she learned to play. Over the years, as my daughter’s interests changed, Florie accommodated her with different styles of teaching and music– including fiddling and shared lessons with her best friend. I am happy to say that at the age of 15, my daughter is still enjoying playing the violin (including playing in the California Honors orchestra)  and I attribute much of that to Florie’s engaging approach to teaching.” — J.R.
