There are an abundance of string teachers in the Chicagoland area, but few of them can boast having real teaching credentials. Not here - I actually have a music education degree. Not only do I know how to play the violin really well, I also have the teaching tools necessary to get my students to play the violin really well. When you choose a teacher with real credentials, you get farther, faster.
