What People Say
“Cardinia has a wonderful understanding of how to teach and keep young children engaged. She has a calming and patient attitude towards the lessons while still able to move seamlessly through her lesson plan and helping the children learn new concepts and making them stick. TrebleMakers is recommended to all young children who have an interest in music. Cardinia brings to life learning to read and creating music. Our 7 year old son looks forward to his TrebleMakers class every week as he enjoys the interaction and learning new and interesting things about music.”
“My 9 year old has been learning violin for 2 years and started TrebleMakers this year (2017). Her violin teacher has commented on the improvement in her playing since and I attribute it to the fun filled lessons she has had every weekend with Cardinia. I wish I had music theory education that was as fun, I might have gotten a lot further! Thanks Cardinia for your patience, passion and enthusiasm to see your students thrive.”
“Thank you so much for being such a great teacher to Nicholas. I am so glad that Nicholas joined your TrebleMakers class because ever since he started attending he has been more interested in reading music and challenging himself. His overall musical ability has improved a great deal. A lot of his improvement is the result of your keen interest to impart the knowledge. I understand Music Theory extends beyond being able to read sheet music so needless to say, we look forward to having Nicholas participate in the program in the years to come.”
“TrebleMakers is a fantastic music theory program for children that learn a musical instrument. It is vital for children to understand the foundation of music as it enhances their ability to recognise music notes and rhythms. My daughter always looks forward to having her lessons with Cardinia and she is more confident than ever. We are delighted with this program.”
