I am impressed

“I am impressed. My daughter can now play two songs on her violin!!! We have had lessons before with other teachers and while they helped to lay some groundwork, my daughter was not confident enough to play a complete song. Now she is marking her music by herself and playing the songs completely. Thank you for working with my daughter. I look forward to more classes.”

a gifted teacher who inspires

“Laura is a gifted musician and, perhaps more importantly, a gifted teacher who inspires a love of music in her students. Laura takes a genuine interest in each of her students. She learns their strengths and identifies areas where they need extra work. Laura connects with her students to help them achieve their goals as musicians while keeping it fun so students want to keep learning.”

instills a desire and love of music

“Laura Nadine is a musician, teacher, powerful advocate, and a very good friend. She has presented to our staff, families, and Atlanta community about her journey and her unique perspective of disability and differences. Because she is such an important guide for Hirsch, she is now on our advisory board. Laura also created our first ever music program at Hirsch. She presumes competence in all her students, supporting them in her unique, skilled and loving way. Not only does she teach students to play violin, viola and cello, she more importantly instills a desire and love of music in all her students. We look forward to continuing our relationship of listening, learning and a forever friendship with Laura Nadine.”

Encouraging and positive

“Ms. Nadine is an awesome teacher! She is encouraging and positive while giving feedback. My daughter went from being a complete newbie to being able to play a couple of songs on the violin. To get the most from this class, your child should definitely be committed to practicing at least 15 minutes each day. “

Great musical insights

“Laura is capable of providing great musical insights into some of the most challenging works in the violin repertoire. Her extensive teaching experience shows in the way she clearly communicates these ideas and her ability to connect with her students in a personal way that makes lessons a comfortable and productive learning environment.”

Former Student

Warm and welcoming

“We love Teacher Laura! She is so warm and welcoming. Both of my children love having her as a teacher. Laura’s teaching style is so very kid-friendly. The students listen when she speaks, and their understanding is clear when they put the bow to the violin. At first I was skeptical about online violin lessons. For the price and the wonderful teacher, I feel we have found an excellent opportunity! Thank you Outschool and Teacher Laura!”

Always ended class with a smile

“My daughter learned how to play several songs in this course and always ended class with a smile. All questions were answered in a way that left my child feeling confident. And she felt encouraged to practice her basic violin techniques while looking forward to class each week.”
