Kenedi is always so happy and joyful before and after her lessons. Amanda does an absolute amazing job communicating and teaching. We are very happy, and will continue to use her as long as she is willing to teach my daughter. Thank you very much

Amanda met me at the door and we walked to the class room. She explained what we were going to accomplish in the 1 st lesson. She made me feel at ease.
By the end of the lesson my breathing was a lot better , sing on key better and that made me feel good.
Looking forwarded to the next lesson.
