After two and a half years of cello instruction under Valdine’s guidance, and with persistent practice, my children were able to enroll in a local children’s chamber orchestra at an entry level.  Valdine visited my children at the orchestra when we first enrolled to ensure that her students were doing well.  Not only does Valdine teach my children music, she has inspired me to be a patient parent, to enjoy every little present precious moment with my children while understanding the true meaning of perseverance.
