Dr. Kathleen is a phenomenal teacher. She is very gifted in her ability to connect with her students. She is incredibly kind, but she also is very instill discipline in her students. Our son has learned so much from her and looks forward to lessons!
Dr. Kathleen is a wonderful piano teacher for my two daughters! She is sensitive and gentle, and patient and encouraging. She does a great job with lessons online and in person. My daughters enjoy their time with her and are eager to practice and show her what they have accomplished. She is a perfect fit for our family, and we are blessed to have found her!
Dr. Kathleen exudes the patience, professionalism , the right level of encouragement and praise during her sessions with my 13 and 8 year old. The recordings she uses in Skype during the sessions have been a tremendous help with practice. I found her ability to remain calm, systematic and structured during he lessons have helped my high functioning autistic 8 year old son to get better at the piano. We are very happy to have found her.
Kathleen is the kindest, most patient teacher on the planet. With my rambunctious trio, she keeps her calm and guides them gently through their lessons. For several years she has provided in person lessons and video lessons. Would not want any other music teacher for my kids.
Dr. Kathleen is a very kind teacher with very high violin attainments. She is very details and creative! My son really enjoying learning with her!
Both my son and daughter love Dr. Kathleen and we are very grateful to have found her. Because of her teaching methods, joyous and positive nature, my kids love learning piano and violin more now. We cannot thank her enough for all that she does.
Dr. Kathleen is the best violin/fiddle teacher we have seen! She is patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. In just a few lessons she had our 5 year old confidently playing some songs by ear and also reading some music. Her teaching methods have been very effective. Not only has she helped our young, new beginner, she has also helped our 12 year old two time state fiddle champion. She has helped her prepare some difficult new fiddle pieces, adding in many special extras, and we can’t wait for the next fiddle championship. Dr Kathleen has been so encouraging as she has corrected many of the wrong habits my daughter had taught herself from not having a real fiddle teacher and learning mainly YouTube lessons. Our youngest should be able to start competing in the peewee division at the next competition also! We highly recommend Dr Kathleen Lavengood for anyone who wants to confidently and correctly learn the fiddle (or violin)!
Dr. Kathleen L. is the best I wish we met her earlier what she has been able to accomplish with my daughter in such a short time is amazing. It was very hard to motivate her to practice and even remember her violin before Dr. Kathleen L. but now she reminds me. Her words, "I love the violin, it's fun."
We love our lessons! Dr. Kathleen is so patient and creative while challenging my son and integrating music theory along with Suzuki piano.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Dr. Kathleen for almost 2 years now. They have been nothing but wonderful and joyful years and my 7 year old has learned so much during this time. I recently enrolled my son as well and his lessons were going very smoothly as well, owing to her encouragement and her very patient teaching methods. Definitely recommend her to any one!!
Best teacher and patient with Sydney.
Dr. Kathleen L. is a perfect fit for our 13 year old! Dr. Kathleen has a kind disposition, within five minutes our daughter felt comfortable. Dr. Kathleen’s lesson plan is structured and easy for our daughter to follow. My only regret is not using Musika sooner! Lessons start on time and finish on time, and our daughter loves learning in her home and playing her own piano! Thank you Musika for introducing Dr. Kathleen to our family!
Mrs. Kathleen is very encouraging and patient with both my children. Their love of music has grown exponentially in just a matter of months! Their skill level has increased and I find them humming music every day!
Kathleen is a really fantastic teacher. She is very patient and gentle in her teaching methods, while making sure my 5 year old daughter learns from her instruction. I recommend her greatly.
Kathleen is an outstanding teacher. Lays is extremely patient and talented. My daughters take violin and piano with her and have blossemed under her instruction.
She is prompt, professional, friendly, patient, and just a fantastic instructor. My daughter who is receiving the instruction loves her and really enjoys learning from Dr. Kathleen. If anybody ever asks I will highly recommend her.
Dr. Kathleen is always punctual, warm, and a joy to have to have in our home. I recommend her to everyone who asks, and even some who don't!
Very encouraging teacher for my hesitant 5-year old. Mrs. Kathleen is so gentle that my daughter complies with joy!
Kathleen is friendly, encouraging, and knowledgable. She is a proficient and effective teacher. My granddaughter recommended her, and that said it all. I would recommend her to anyone.
She is awesome, very encouraging and knowledgeable. I've recommended her to two families so far.
She works well with my 6 y.o. because she uses music games along with the technical workings of a piano and pushes him to play advanced music. Yes, I would recommend her to every one.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
