(Hello) My name is Leslie,
I have been taking lessons with Sophia about three years now. I was really nervous at first, but with Sophia’s patience and kindness it been a fun learning experience. I started playing at 37 so I thought I was too old. I admire people who can play the violin like Sophia. The violin is a hard instrument to play. When I play the violin it relaxes me and I am proud of myself when I master a song. Thank you Sophia! -Leslie -37 years old
