Testimonials

"Maddi balances focus and fun in a perfect way.  She is inspiring as a musician and as a person. She is always positive and always maintains her belief in the girls' potential.  She relates to each kid in an honest, genuine way and really understands each kid as a whole person.  (I know this is a policy in The Elizabeth Faidley Studio.)  

Maddi supports every music venture the girls want to follow - competitions, auditions and recitals.  We know that Maddi is always on our side.  She answers all our practice questions and ideas really promptly and helps us to bring our practice and playing back on track when we lose focus. 

Maddi is the fourth teacher we tried and we consider ourselves really lucky to have found her."   

-Caroline, Mother of Sophia, 11 and Isabella, 9

Maddi has worked with my 9 year old daughter, Mia, for the past three years on a weekly basis.  Not only is she an accomplished violinist herself but she also is an amazing teacher, possessing a special ability to connect with young students, inspiring, motivating and challenging them.  My daughter respects and admires Maddi and therefore enjoys her direction and strives to achieve in her violin studies.
