"My son has grown to be wonderfully competent on the violin under Ms. Goodner's tutelage. More importantly he has learned to turn notes and technique into beautiful music. I am constantly amazed at the quality of sound she produces in my son. Ms. Goodner also has a brilliant way of connecting with her students. She knows who my son is and how to use that to challenge and motivate him"
J. Boss (a very satisifed 7th year parent)
"Christine Goodner has been my daughter's violin teacher for 7 years. Zoe has flourished under her guidance. Christine teaches technique, music theory, proper ergonomics, and the joy of playing the violin. She has been flexible with the school work load, which helps when times become stressful. Zoe really enjoys Christine and I think she is a great teacher too"
Kim (parent of Zoe - a student for 7 years)
"We really appreciate Christine's interest in each of our girls. They are so different in their learning styles and Christine is able to work with both of them in their strengths. We appreciate Christine's willingness to broaden the girls outside Suzuki music. She's a great resource for what's happening in the broader community of music for camps, play groups, symphonies and more. We loved having Christine as our teacher for so many years!" Martha (parent of two former students)
"Christine Goodner is a wonderful violin teacher. She is intelligent, constructive, compassionate and warm. I would entrust any of my students to her"
