Student Reviews
Chris M.

“My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Emily. Emily is patient, encouraging, and fun. We look forward to many more lessons with her!”

Chan C.

“She is a good teacher, very patient, knowledge, experienced.”

Angela G.

“Emily Zaita is a great teacher. She is warm, funny, and most of all patient, which is a skill you definitely need as music teacher. She makes sure that I have fully mastered a piece before moving to the next which is a big thing for me. I definitely would recommend that you have Emily as your instructor if you want to learn violin or viola. You will definitely advance in no time with her.”
