'I just played my cello at the Sydney Opera House!'

Your students are all so well prepared and set up behind their instruments but the fact that their musical understanding is clearly a priority speaks volumes for what you must be teaching them.
Rohan de Korte, cellist Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

It has been a blessing to our family to have you as our violin and cello teacher for the last four years. We couldn't be more lucky. Your dedication, commitment and hard work to your students and us has no comparison.
Hsing and Priscilla

I can't thank you enough for all the time, care and attention you put into my visit. I so much enjoyed hearing your students. You are a very gifted teacher with a vocation for bringing music to children and what you are achieving is really wonderful.

Congratulations on yet another magnificent concert. The students are your glory! You really shine through them. You are lovely with each of the children and I see so clearly that you care for every one of them. It’s delightful to watch you interacting with the children. We are so grateful for your gentleness and humility in teaching Emily, you are a lovely model for her to follow. Thank you in so many ways.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for being such a wonderful violin teacher, With all of your patience, creativity, dedication and love, you have made a great difference for both Aiden and Kaylee

Thank you for helping me to prepare all my pieces for the Eisteddfod. You are an inspirational teacher.

Congratulations on a most successful concert! It was spine-tingling to observe such young children developing a passion for their instrument and a love for music which you yourself display so tangibly. D'Arcy considers himself most fortunate to be counted among your students. We thank you.

We really enjoyed today and it was lovely to see so many of the children progressing and enjoying their music. You put such a lot of effort into the concert to ensure the children are comfortable  and experience success in their performances. We are all very fortunate to have such a dedicated teacher for our children.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into my cello. I love learning from you and you are such a wonderful teacher.

We really appreciate your approach to teaching music. Oscar has really jumped forward and we are so thankful that you are so dedicated to sharing the love of music.

Wow Wow Wow, what a mighty effort to bring todays Christmas concert together, so much organisation, we loved it.
A big thankyou from the Sevil family.

You have really shown the children how to play their music with such dynamics and the music has really come alive in all of their playing! Well done!!

A big thank you for all the effort you put in to making such a fabulous Christmas concert!

Thank you for providing the best educational experience that Xave has had.  His general self-confidence since he started doing the cello with you has risen enormously.  It has been the best thing we ever did for him.
You really have such a special way with the children! It’s a gift to be able to connect with them the way you do!! It’s such a pleasure watching you teach Jamilla and Charles and also a privilege to have you as their teacher and mentor.

Thanks for everything you do to make this whole experience so much more than just learning how to play for Laura and I. I really feel blessed to be a part of it all.

Thankyou for the wonderful cello teaching you provided at Tamworth Conservatorium. Both Stella and I learned so much from you over these months

Thankyou so much for bringing back my determination to do well in cello, and also for teaching me 'passion'! You are a wonderful teacher!

I have thoroughly enjoyed your teaching, and I feel that I have learned many skills from your teaching. I have really appreciated your time and the effort you have put in, especially in helping me with my graduation pieces.

Thankyou for your dedication and enthusiasm in teaching Andrew. He thoroughly enjoys cello lessons with you and you have inspired and challenged him. We are watching him develop both musically and personally under your direction.

All the students loved having you and we all appreciate the time and effort you have put into the Tamworth cello studio.

Through learning the cello, my thinking capacities have improved and I have become much more efficient in studying medicine. I highly recommend Sofia as a cello teacher and think she is an amazing person. Thank you Sofia.

Thankyou so much Sofia. I love my violin lessons, you make them so special

Thankyou for teaching me this term!!! I love the concerts!!! They are GREAT!
