The things I had her do would have made most people freeze up but not Nancy. She stepped to the challenge and then crushed it. Use this woman for your next studio session."
-Dane Diamond (indie songwriter/producer)
"Nancy's live violin added so much to the atmosphere! She was the picture of flexibility and did a fabulous job. We'll definitely keep her in mind for future events".
Joann P. Los Angeles
"Love love lessons with Nancy, she's the best. Been taking Adult Beginner Group Violin lessons since Summer 2013.
It's the first time I've ever picked up a violin and it's going well so far. She's such a great teacher and she keeps the lessons affordable. It's been a blast and I'm learning so much."-Victoria F. (adult learner) Los Angeles, CA
"I love that she incorporates improvisation and composition from the very beginning in a way that even a six-year-old can grasp and enjoy."
-Susan (mother of 6 year old learner)
"One of the best things about taking lessons with Nancy is that she makes them fun and interesting. I always wonder where the time went."
"Nancy did an excellent job. We had a solo violinist and it fit beautifully with our small and intimate outdoor ceremony. She is available to speak and meet with you if needed. The music selections can be customized to your liking, whether is it a classical selection or a contemporary selection. I highly recommend Nancy for any wedding or event!"
"Nancy was great! I proposed to my fiance on New Year's Eve, and as part of the surprise I wanted someone to play our song. Nancy was extremely helpful, professional, and thorough. She really cared about making sure all the details were right to make the proposal perfect. When the evening didn't go exactly as intended (my fault, not hers) she was flexible and helped come up with a new plan on the fly. The proposal was still perfect, and the song was absolutely beautiful! Thanks Nancy!"
"Very professional, accommodating and talented. Someone we will surely bring back again"
"Nancy is nothing short of outstanding. She went above above what was asked of her to make sure my best friend's proposal was amazing. Her talent and playing are excellent, her demeanor friendly, polite, and extremely professional."
"The lovely and extremely talented Nancy is to violin what Jimmy Page is to guitar."
