I am very happy with Nandita. She is a brilliant tutor!
My Son used to hate playing the violin, but since he gets lessons from Nandita he loves the violin once again. Nandita understands very well pupil's needs and use different materials and methods for the best approach.
I would like to recommend her to anyone indeed
