This year my daughter started learning the cello with Braxton and he has been terrific with her - she looks forward to her lessons. LCMCC has a nurturing environment for my kids to grow in their love for music. J. Wong

Braxton is a wonderful and friendly Suzuki Cello instructor. He is very encouraging and patient in his style of teaching. My son has been taking lessons with Braxton for over half a year and has learned so much already. He looks forward to his lessons all the time. The LCMCC provides a wonderful space for music learning and I am so glad that my children are enjoying learning their music here. The office staff are always very welcoming, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the LCMCC for anyone looking to take up music lessons. S.Lum
