What parents say about Mr. Freitag:
"Rolando Freitag has been my daughter's violin teacher for the past five years. He is a deeply gifted teacher who brings an amazing blend of great discipline, wisdom, and humor to his work. My daughter adores him. He has inspired our daughter to engage this challenging instrument. He never coddles or infantilizes, but encourages her continually to rise to her growing capacities as a musician. I would recommend Mr. Freitag to anyone - child or adult - who wishes to learn the violin or viola. My daughter's life will be forever touched by his gift, and we are so grateful."
"Mr. Freitag's teaching style evolved perfectly as my daughter progressed from a small beginner to a talented young adult. He is truly gifted at teaching and inspiring students of all ages and abilities. He is extremely creative, kind, talented, motivating, patient, precise, and demonstrates and expects precision. His teaching approach is comprehensive, consistent, and flexible. He is also an amazing musician!"
