"My husband and I just wanted to express our appreciation for all
the effort and patience you have shown towards our daughters.
Your passion for music and your gift for teaching has helped to
develop a taste for all things musical in our home. The girls have
often left their classes entertained by your stories, encouraged by
your experiences and their horizons broadened by your zeal for life.
Our one desire is for our daughters to develop abilities that will in
turn bless others around them and you have been instrumental (no
pun intended) in helping to shape this area of their lives."
Morrison (Palatka, Florida) - parent of 8 with 4 girls studying with Geoff
I want to commend you on your fantastic teaching style put forth
with my daughter Nicole, a true "beginner" at the violin! You are a
truly creative teacher, and it is clear that you have a superb talent for
"teaching" that inspires the young and old alike! I appreciate that
you are giving her a chance to "enjoy" the music and to focus on the
positive, especially at this early phase which (my hope) will help
keep her interest as the lessons become more demanding. ...I wish I
had met you 35 years ago when I first took violin lessons (myself) from a very strict teacher, coincidentally in Buffalo (where we are
both originally from)"
