    My daughter has been studying violin with Dr. Certain for the last 1 ½ years. She started with the music knowledge kids in general acquire in elementary schools but with no violin experience. We are very happy with the progress she has made so far. Dr. Certain takes great interest in the student’s improvement and has been very supportive and encouraging while she prepared for her audition for her placement in the middle school orchestra. He organizes a recital at the Plano Courtyard Theater annually which is very helpful for the kids to work towards their performance skills along with dealing with the stage fright. I highly recommend Dr. Certain for beginner and/or advanced violin lessons.

    Dr. Certain has been a great teacher to Joey (my son), he's patient in his teaching and has a sense of humor which is important to kids. His knowledge in violin and music theory is a tremendous help to us. He involves parents to learn with the kids which is very helpful for the student as the parent can be a guidance at home. Dr. Certain really has a passion in teaching violin and that really influences my son to do better. Dr. Certain also enjoys playing violin with his students. I'm learning to play the violin too so sometimes I'll bring my violin to play with him and my son, it's very fun and a pleasure to see his enthusiasm when playing the violin with others. It's good to see a music teacher with a strong passion for the instrument that he's teaching and that really inspires us.
