Client Comments

We really enjoy getting to know our clients.  Here are some comments they have kindly made about Waterford Music Lessons:

“I HIGHLY recommend Julia for lessons —
even with someone who’s never touched a guitar.  She’s been teaching my oldest daughter for less than a year and she’s made incredible progress in such a short time.”- Priscilla, mother of guitar & drum student

“Thanks for the awesome blues jam session tonight…you personify ‘cool’!”- Jennifer, mother of guitar/piano student

“Julia exceeded my expectations as an adult beginner by laying an excellent foundation of music theory balanced exquisitely with the nitty gritty of playing. Her enthusiasm for what she does is incredibly contagious, and I left every lesson feeling more musically empowered.  Nine years later, I am still utilizing practice techniques and musical theory she introduced to me.  She is an incredibly gifted teacher, and I would recommend her to anyone who not only wants to jump on into playing but who desires to deepen their theoretical understanding of their craft as well.”- Courtney, bass student

“Music lessons with Julia are a lot of fun. She is caring, enthusiastic, and knows a lot about music. She adapted her program to my very beginning level of ability and my interests, and I quickly learned how to perform some songs, which was my goal. I would recommend Waterford Music Lessons to anyone who is just starting out, and to someone who has experience but wants to improve.”  Rob, guitar student

“Julia has been instrumental in my journey of music and expression. My heart is full of song these days! I feel so fortunate that Julia is my guitar teacher. Thanks again!” Nancy, guitar/songwriting student

“My daughter is taking guitar from Julia at Waterford Music Lessons, and Julia is great with her. She allows my daughter to choose the songs she wants to work on, and breaks the music down so that it is manageable for a new learner. She mixes popular music with music theory so that the lessons are interesting. My daughter always comes out of her lessons feeling happy and excited to be learning guitar.”   Cynthia, mother of guitar student

“thanks for the awesome blues jam session tonight…you personify ‘cool” Jennifer, mother of guitar/piano student

“Waterford Music Lessons provides a fun-loving and casual environment for my kids to feel comfortable as they are learning to play guitar.  Ms. Julia makes learning fun which is key to their success!  I would highly recommend WML to my friends and neighbors.”    Kristen, mother of two guitar students

“Julia Kasdorf has motivated my daughter to pick up her guitar again.  She is actually going to her room and sitting down with her guitar and playing and singing.  Moving to Virginia from Montana was a huge transition for my daughter; and my husband and I struggled with finding a guitar instructor that would motivate her to play again.  Julia has brought the joy of playing music back into her life by making playing her guitar fun.  I would recommend Julia to anyone.   Charlene, mother of guitar student
“Our home had gone silent. Because our busy lives had robbed my family of taking the time to play music I knew I had to do something. So, I went on a search for someone who would take amateur adult guitar students and  found Julia. What a blessing! Now both my adult son and husband can’t wait for their lessons, even rearranging work travel to make it home in time to jam with Julia! They leave the house with a smile and come back with a smile because they’ve had so much fun learning new techniques and now have dedicated music time once again in their lives. ”   Lori, mother and wife of 2 guitar students
“I have been playing at the guitar for almost 44 years. With Julia’s very patient and upbeat teaching style, I am now playing the guitar. My busy schedule means that my lesson with Julia might be the only time during the week that I get to play. She somehow manages to review the old, teach the new, and still make time for the pure fun of playing. Music lessons with Julia are one of the best investments I have ever made.”  Chuck, guitar student
