Very patient and beyond knowledgeable! I haven't done anything with TakeLessons before and my online class was hosted via skype so it was easy to get connected and learn at my own pace. I like that my lessons will be tailored to my style and my level of musical understanding. She has excellent follow-up for after the lessons as well. I'm excited to be a student again :)
