I enjoy watching my student's enjoyment and success! Learning a musical instrument can be really fulfilling, and a great way to keep your brain and your co-ordination sharp and in shape. I make sure lessons are enjoyable for myself as well as the student. Humor is always good, so we have fun. And work. And see results! And that's enjoyable!
LaDonna gives each student personalized attention and fosters a lifetime love of music in her students. She both challenges and encourages at every step. Selecting LaDonna to be my daughter's violin teacher was one of my best parenting decisions.
I studied with Ms. LaDonna for 8 years and I wish I had her for more than 8 years. She is not only an excellent violin and piano player, but also an amazing teacher and mentor. She helped me find my passion for music and stick with it. When I have children, I want them to study with LaDonna. She is by far the best violin teacher out there and definitely one of the kindest people I've ever met.
I began to study music at the Sequana Creative Studio around four years ago now. I had been playing the violin since I was 6, but had never been trained classically and barely knew how to read music. My teachers barely pushed me and I began to lose interest in music. My band member, who I aspired to, told me about her amazing 10-year experience with Mrs. LaDonna! As soon as I began my lessons there, I progressed at an amazing rate and violin, to this day, is my strongest subject and passion. I am blessed to be able to work with her and enjoy every lesson. Along with a fantastic group of violinists and friends, a beautiful studio, convenient pricing and location, and expert teaching, I enjoy spending time with Mrs. LaDonna as each student is treated like family.

It's always been my chosen vocation. When you teach, you learn. When you learn, you share what you've learned! You teach! It's the Chain of Life and knowledge. To grow, both student and teacher alike! The old saying is true, "Experience is the best teacher!"
