Parents have said about Tanya's teaching: " My son Max, was fortunate to be one of Tanya's students. He started violin with her the day after he turned 4. Tanya has a wonderful way with very young students. Her patience and kindness were consistent from Max's first lesson to his last. Along with younger students, Tanya also taught older children and adults."-Susan R.

"Heather had four prior violin teachers and there is no way to compare the progress Heather made while studying with Tanya. Tanya has been a very positive influence in Heather's journey to learn the violin."-Sharon P.

"Our son Ethan was in the fourth grade and just starting to learn the viola when he became Tanya's student. At age 13, Ethan was principal viola for the Intermezzo Orchestra, for which there are eight viola chairs. Tanya has played a principal role in Ethan's accomplishments. Tanya's teaching of our son Ethan has allowed him to attain an accomplished level that he may have not realized with another instructor."-Kurt and Fern B.
