As a professional musician with over thirty years of experience and a doctorate from one of the premier music institutions, I can fully vouch for Larisa as a master teacher. Having recently arrived in Denver, my daughter has had the good fortune of working with her. Larisa has a vast knowledge of advanced violin technique and repertoire. Her approach combines the application of technique while focusing on musical expression and individual interpretation. As such, my daughter has grown both in terms of mastery of the instrument, but also in musical expression and confidence. She is devoted to her students and their musical development. If you are interested in seriously furthering your mastery of the violin, I cannot but highly recommend her to you.

“Professional and dedicated”
Larisa Lewis is a very professional and dedicated teacher, who gives her soul to her students. She has been teaching my son for six years already and I am very thankful for all the progress my son has made with her. My younger son started taking lessons with her as well. I think if you want to give your child more professional music experience and the teacher who will care for your child’s future, Larisa is the one. Thank you.
I have been playing the violin for over 2 years now. Larisa has helped me start playing, and has helped me develop, and has taught me a lot that I would have never expected to learn in two years. She is helping me catch up to my level every lesson, and the pieces that she chooses are just beautiful. I am glad I have chosen to play the violin, and to learn from her. She is an amazing teacher.
“Engaging and productive“
Mrs. Larisa’s lessons are very engaging and productive. My brother and I both take lessons with her, and we look forward to our lessons every week. She focuses the entire lesson on helping me improve my technique as well as musicality. My brother and I have improved so much within the time we have been with her. She is an amazing teacher, and I am grateful to be taught by her.
