'Paulina, Thank you so much for teaching Isabella violin and piano. Not only she thoroughly enjoys her lessons with you, but most importantly, you taught her to love music. I would happily recommend you to all of our friends.'
'Paulina has been teaching my three children, aged 17, 15 and 10 for nearly two years. She is clearly very excited and passionate about music and she conveys this through her lessons with the children. She always provides a high, but friendly, quality of teaching and expects a similar quality of practice from the children without being overly disciplinarian. I would highly recommend Paulina as a violin tutor for all levels!'
'As an adult beginner, Paulina is the style of violin teacher that I sought: one with a passion for the subject she teaches. She is a natural teacher; helping her students connect to music, with violin as the instrument. She is an incisive instructor, having clear empathy for her students and adapting each lesson accordingly. She is a firm but fair tutor, her lessons being both thoughtful and enjoyable.'
