    I'm an adult beginner and Nancy's approach to teaching violin keeps me motivated as well as making each lesson enjoyable. She had me "playing" after 3 lessons! Nancy is an accomplished violin instructor but she also has an amazing gift to teach the student to enjoy music at all skill levels and appreciate all (even the smallest) accomplishments!

    Nancy has been teaching my daughter Anano for over a year now. My daughter fell in love with her the very first day. Nancy is a professional teacher and a sweet person, a person we are happy we have found.

    Nancy is an awesome teacher. She goes out of her way to teach my kids, always encourages them. My kids have learnt a lot and have shown a lot of improvement in a short period of time under her guidance. We are very blessed to have her teach our kids!

  • Marian Massie

    OMG I cannot say enough good things about Nancy Zepp!!! She is a true professional that is kind and truly supportive! I have recently taken up the violin again and she is the best teacher I have ever had as a child or as an adult. She loves to teach and it comes through in her lessons and personality! I give her 5 stars!!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I teach a beginning violin student I am very intuitive In terms of my approach. I may use a book, String Builder by Samuel Applebaum or whatever I decide is most appropriate for that particular student. Students with playing experience usually begin with a duet or a solo so that I can get an idea of that student's needs. My sessions are pressure free!!!

After many, many years of teaching I have learned to listen, observe and trust my special instincts.
