Martha has a parent-centric style of teaching the violin called the Suzuki Method, which I find fabulous. She is about my parent's age, but has all the energy of somebody in her early 20's. She emphasizes quality of interaction, and parent-child practice time together.
She has only been in Sarasota for 2 years, but I am so happy to have found this little gem of a music teacher.
My daughter has been taking violin lessons for more than a year. She loves her teachers and I can tell that they really care about my kid too. Your music school is wonderful and I highly recommend.
