Student Reviews

Cumming, GA

If you are looking for a violin teacher who is very smart, and great with kids as well as adults, then Miriam is a great choice. Our grandson started taking lessons recently. He is learning so much. He calls me, his Grandy Sandy, to listen to him practice sometimes. Miriam is a great motivator and truly loves being a teacher.
