"It is known that music education has quite a lot of positive mental, emotional and social effects on children. Today, when general education has turned into a meaningless race, a qualified instrument education can be a savior for the child. The time spent with an experienced and well-versed violin teacher will provide many opportunities for the child not only to learn music, but also to explore many values with a master-apprentice relationship, and to overcome new musical and life learning challenges".
