I was introduced to Roger by my girlfriend whose little brother had been taking lessons with Roger and showed significant improvements during a short term. It took me little time with Roger to realise not wanting to continue my violin lessons at high school due to "weak talent" was nothing but an excuse.
He is such a fabulous friendly motivator!
Roger has been my daughter's violin tutor for 5 years now and guided her from scratch to one of her school's leader players!
And just recently my nephew has started taking lessons from him.
Anyway he's professional and really knows his job.
As a professional trustworthy tutor, Raja does a great job. He knows very well how to put up with different age ranges through proper strategies and his music skills are unbelieavably unique. I absolutely recommend him whether you're a beginner or you already play.
I've been his student for 3 years and I can say with confidence that he is fantastic.
The way that he teaching is really great and technical.
On the other hand his a nice, lovely and kind man and reliable.
He's an experienced and very patient violin tutor .I stated from scratch and I could feel remarkable improvement just after 3 month.
