Using the Suzuki approach, Valdine has successfully built the positive relationship triangle of teacher/student/parents and truly embraces the concept of Nurture by Love.  She encourages us when we feel discouraged during the learning process.  She embraces us when we accomplish a piece of music with determination and hard practice.  In addition to one-on-one lessons that my children have with her, my family has gained so much parenting knowledge from her weekly studio classes and her teacher/parents nights.  On parent night, she provides book recommendations for us to read and we have the opportunity to share with or listen to other parent’s experiences.  Those are invaluable.  I highly recommend Dr. Valdine Mishkin as a music teacher for your child(ren).
