"My daughter (now 14 years old) has been taking violin lessons with 'Iolani for three years.  'Iolani embodies a rare mixture of fun and laughter along with absolute insistence on musical perfection. She is strict on technique and form but also encourages individual expression and musicality. I can not speak too highly of 'Iolani as a music teacher.  She is superb in every way.  If you would like to ask me or my daughter further questions, please email me directly at"
