    Very nice lesson focused on the fundamentals

  • Carol Pawlowski

    Professional, starts off correcting some fundamental problems that I was not aware that I had. These corrections will over time make a big difference in my playing

  • Petar

    His lessons were very educational! I like his way of teaching and I enjoyed his classes very much!

  • Tammy Truong

    I find it very helpful with Toni's techniques and effort of teaching even in our first lesson. He will give students useful hints and tips as well as correcting your violin posture. I recommend him for your future violin lesson!
