Gisele has been teaching our daughter since Christmas. So pleased with how much she has come on. Gisele is a great teacher who is always friendly and encouraging with plenty of much needed patience. She is greatly invested with our daughters progress and is even offering lessons over Zoom so she can continue her learning during this Covid crisis.'

'Gisele is a gifted violinist with a passion in music. She is very soft, loving and motivating.  My two children are being trained by her and they enjoy their lessons very much.  Gisele's warm approach has influenced them a lot and they picked up a lot in just three months. She treated every child as her own and encourages them to pursue their goals.  Apart from that she organizes concerts and thus gives every pupil an opportunity to perform in such concerts.  I would definitely recommend Gisele to anyone who wants to learn to play violin.'

In my lessons, Gisele makes sure that when I am learning music, I receive full understanding, not only of intonation and rhythm, but of good technique and style. She has concentrated specifically on my weaknesses that consequently have improved greatly since she started teaching me. She gets through a large amount of learning in each lesson making sure that every detail is perfected meaning that I am improving at an extraordinary rate. Gisele is very positive and influential in my lessons causing me to be encouraged to improve at playing the violin.
