Irina has been teaching my kids for over a year. She's been so patient, especially with my reluctant student, and has inspired them to want to learn violin. It's a joy to listen to my kids play.
Parent, Violin Students
I watched my son’s confidence grow and it is due in no small part to his music education and performance with Irina. She has a gift for quickly assessing and understanding how a child learns and she is able to connect with them in a way that allows them to get the most out of their lessons no matter their level. Irina is very passionate about music and teaching and it comes across immediately. She is both patient and motivating; we feel very fortunate to have her teaching our son.
Irina is a great instructor. She has always been super patient and sweet with my son. She is very reliable and accommodating to our schedule. My son learned so much from Irina. We love her!
