Helen started violin in October 2018. She is 6. I think she s doing fantastic progress. She has passed her bronze medal. She is very good with sight reading and enjoys her lessons. River is always very attentive. Chooses pieces carefully. Helen enjoys the lessons and follows River’s instructions very well. River is always polite and friendly, very professional. Thanks to lessons with River Helen’s rhythm and musicality improved incredibly. We also enjoy concerts when River participates. We are always invited and attend whenever we can. We appreciate River’s flexibility with timing the lessons. I would highly recommend Him as a violin tutor. Really good teacher.
