"I attended David's last violin recital where about 20 of his students, ages 5 to 15 performed individual and group pieces. Some of the kids also performed duets with David. He is so enthusiastic and encouraging with these kids, and their skills are truly impressive! I have been a violist since I was 14 years old, and had an exceptional teacher so I can truly appreciate how good David is."


Mr. Zimbalist has been instructing me for over three years. He is always encouraging and gives me helpful techniques to improve my musical skills. He chooses really interesting pieces for me to play and inspires me to strive to be a better musician.

"David is an extremely kind and knowledgable teacher, that is why he earns the trust of his students and their parents. He makes learning so much fun for the kids!"


"David has been teaching violin lessons to my two daughters for almost two years.  He is kind and patient, and my girls look forward to their lessons with him.  He encourages them without being too demanding, challenging them while keeping them engaged.  Our family enjoyed the recital that David recently held, which included a performance of David’s string quartet after the students played.  We love the convenience of having David come to our house for lessons.  Overall, I would recommend David without hesitation."


"David is an extraordinarily patient, supportive viola/violin instructor. He knows how to encourage each of my three boys to access their capabilities and then exceed them!"

"I love my violin teacher David. He's nice and funny, and I like the music he gets for me to play. He's really good at explaining things. And I like how he involves me in the lesson and lets me make choices, such as whether to play solo or duet."
