Testimonial by Micah Gangwer
I highly recommend Rachel Sanders to anyone looking for a Suzuki violin teacher, and I believe her studio would foster a caring, creative, and positive experience to any child. As someone who began violin in the Suzuki method when I was 4 years old, I can personally validate the importance an exceptional Suzuki teacher like Rachel can have in the musical development of a child. Rachel is highly qualified as a teacher and musician, and she is well respected in both regards by the professional music community in Columbia.

My daughter McKenzie started the Suzuki program with Rachel Sanders at the age of four and she is almost six now. Rachel has the knowledge and expertise to teach young children in a way to make it fun where they want to continue learning. Rachel tries to find out what her students likes and dislikes are and really connects with them. We are extremely happy to have found someone that has a passion for music as well as the gift of teaching.
