Dozens of students have received their beginning and intermediate training with Margaret Nelson for the last 10+ years.  Current students are coached through performance opportunities, and encouraged to participate in school or community orchestras and solo competitions.  Students often continue their violin studies well after intermediate training.  Margaret Nelson prepares students to participate in local youth and community symphonies, to study under local symphonic professionals, to excel in solo performances, and to use their violin training in folk, rock, and modern groups and ensembles of their own design!
