Dawn was great with my 10 year old son. She really took a lot of time with him. She had a lit of patience. By the end of the lesson he had learned how to do some of the fingering he had been having trouble with. He felt a lot more confident with his Instrument. I would highly recommend her to any student. In addition to the lesson, she was very easy to schedule with and fit us in at very short notice.

She is fantastic. The half hour flew by. It is clear that she enjoys playing and has the knowledge and skill to teach others.
