“The greatest joy of teaching is seeing the musical progress of my students from week to week. Therefore, I adopt strategies to facilitate their growth and find new ways to promote musical progress. I also like the challenge of learning about my various students because they all grasp music differently.”

~ Marnie Thies, Suzuki Violin Instructor
