    Taisiya is a wonderful teacher and she is very much invested in her students’ progress. When there is an obstacle, she is the best teacher I have seen that comes up with a myriad of solutions to try out. That attitude and passion for teaching is very unusual. I would highly recommend her for lessons unequivocally, especially for serious students.

    Taisiya is an excellent viola teacher. She tailors the lessons to your goals and makes sure to emphasize your strengths while providing careful feedback on your weaknesses. She is great at explaining concepts and can always provide a nice demonstration of techniques while explaining them well enough to try myself. She also puts a lot of effort into organizing studio recitals so that students can showcase what theyve been working on every few months.

    Taisiya has been wonderful with my eight year old daughter! Her violin instruction is technically solid yet she also finds way to make the lessons fun. I’ve noticed a lot of progress with my daughter, as she is excited to play, and even practice! Taisiya relates well to her, inspires her and has a lovely personality. She’s also very easy to work with and willing to be flexible at times to accommodate our family’s crazy schedule!

    She is incredibly patient and very good at communicating and connecting with her students. She has been a big motivator for my daughter, who was ready to quit violin lessons. An excellent teacher I highly recommend.
