My daughter is currently on grade 8 and preparing for NCO main auditions! Konstancija has helped her tremendously with intonation, rhythm, tonality and exercises to make her playing clean, strong and melodious. Konstancija is very passionate about music and the energy she brings to a lesson is clearly felt by non musicians too. My daughter feels proud and confident about her playing now. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested in learning to play violin or viola.
Connie is an amazing instrumentalist and a great tutor. She is very passionate about her work and always pulls all the stops. She has a great understanding of the instrument technically and musically and dedicates her time and effort to share her knowledge with her students.
In less than 7 lessons, Konstancija has taught my little one how to play the violin and read musical notes and she is confident doing so. She's not only concerned about the course but also shows care to what my kid cares about. I am looking forward to the next summer holiday to have Konnie continue the lessons. Konnie is highly recommended.
High skilled,with large of experience and very professional.
