From Parents & Students


“It has been a lifelong ambition to learn to play the violin… Cora is the best teacher I could ever have. She is encouraging but keeps me on track. I have learned so much from her. I was a very nervous student to start off and it has taken a while to settle in. I still get nervous before the recitals. She understands that adult students are very different from teaching the kids. She has infinite patience but expects that I improve and practice regularly. I could not recommend her more highly.” – Stephen A.


“We first met Cora about 5 years ago through a friend’s referral. My daughter was connected with Cora at the very first lesson. Cora was such a fun, engaging, and passionate teacher and my daughter absolutely adored her! Going to her violin lesson was one of the exciting routines in her life. I could see her improving in skills and increasing in passion for violin, thanks to Cora.” – Xuejin R.


“My daughter took lessons from Cora for over 7 years. Cora is simply the best music teacher! Cora is so passionate, talented and inspiring.” – Dana S.


“Learning a new instrument as an adult is a real challenge. Having a passionate teacher to coach you along with encouragement and understanding while you can still enjoy making music is a real art of teaching. Cora Reuter is the one!” – Mai L.


“Cora is a superb violin teacher. She really helped my daughter, who is a beginner, gain a solid technical foundation and musicality. She is fun, energetic, and knows how to relate to children and bring out the best in them.” – Natalie


“Cora is a phenomenal teacher for the ever fickle teenager, she is personal and humorous and can communicate very well, both positive and negative critiques without being stodgy or stiff. My son truly enjoyed his lessons because of the music she chose for him to learn. She asked questions and got to know Jackson and chose music she knew he would be thrilled with, and also let him choose music which was great because being in an orchestra at school you can’t pick what you play! Cora and her family are so open and kind and make you feel like fast friends, I am so glad we were able to find her for my son, and I would recommend her whole heartedly to anyone looking for a excellent violin teacher!” – Bonnie L.


“Cora is a great teacher. My daughter takes many different lessons for musical instruments and I have never seen any teacher who teaches like Cora. She makes sure every minute is worth the time and she is a hard teacher but her lessons is fun and energetic. My daughter says Cora is a best teacher and misses her a lot.” – Sunaeko


“I studied violin with Cora for several years, starting as a beginner. She made a daunting instrument fun to learn and balanced essential violin methods with a broad repertoire, which fueled my enthusiasm for practice. Her constructive approach focused on building a solid skill set, and this enabled me to succeed in both solo and group performances. I highly recommend Cora as teacher who makes learning a positive experience and helps you achieve your musical goals.” – Maggie H.


“Cora makes the lessons exciting and fun, while holding violinists accountable for practice and learning; she does a great job of finding the perfect recital pieces for each student, ensuring the right level of challenge. She has a great attitude!” – Rachel L.
