Chensi was on time. She came to my home. She didn’t charge me for the first lesson, which I didn’t expect. She had a wonderful rapport with my daughter. She seems to be very professional in her instruction.

I learned violin from Chensi. She helps me a lot and I really like her personally and professionally. She points out my problems and let me know how to correct and improve clearly and patiently. Very responsible and nice teacher!

If you want to really hone your technique, definitely turn to Chensi! Shes a very active teacher, demonstrating and helping you really learn the proper technique for the instrument. You will definitely have to practice the drills she teaches you at home.

Frequently asked questions

I am a traditional music teacher. With the beginner, will start with knowing the instrument, playing open strings. Most of my beginner students start to play the tune in third or fourth lessons

I encourage my student to think and to learn. I am an assistant for my student to explore the music. I want my student will be able to self teach a piece without me finally.

I may ask for an interview to accept a student, it's totally free, may through the phone or I drive to you. I only teach one hour lessons, and I do require the parent to sit with the young students for their lessons. If you choose skype lessons, I do require a drive home lesson for at least once a month (except for beginners). Feel free to contact me if you have any question!
