“I have been using ViolaFest for a small string group. I think the pieces are not only nice, but also very good for developing reading skills. My violists played the Celtic Dance and they loved it. We will play Hopscotch next week in a school concert and then start the Moroccan Night… You have produced such lovely material for teaching and I do use it a lot. Although I don't think I will live long enough to use it all!”
— Johannes Lievaart, Violin Teacher Trainer, Netherlands

“I am a big fan of your publications, and use ViolaFest and Trio Tapestry frequently. I have all the books published to date! One of the many things that makes the Suzuki community so great is that people are so willing to share and to help.”
— Judi McDermott-Eggert, New Haven Symphony violist, violinist and music teacher
