Student Feedback: 

  • “Very patient and diligent” – Niela, Brookline, MA on 5/23/16: 

 “My two daughters have just started taking lessons with Dorisiya. They are 7 and 11 years old. Dorisiya has been a very patient and thorough teacher. My older daughter has mentioned how good she is and feels that she is very detailed and very supportive. She goes into a lot of explanation about how and why of doing things. We are very happy so far. She is also very sweet to my younger daughter. I would strongly recommend her!”

  • “Professional and patient” – Wenjie, Cambridge, MA on 10/6/16

“Dorisiya is very professional and patient. She can observe my weakness sharply and help me make great improvement in a very short time. From the exercises she gives me, I can sense that I’m getting a systematic training. Moreover, she is very kind and polite, and makes me feel really relaxed and motivated in playing violin.”

Dorisiya’s pedagogy instructors include Mimi Zweig and Rictor Noren.
