For my daughters first lesson it went pretty good. We had some reception issues which is not her fault, but the downside to doing lessons online. She worked with her on some techinical issues , as well as jumped right in to work on her music she is using in band.

Dawn is a wonderful teacher- patient, fun, encouraging who customizes the lessons to my needs and then sends an email full of lesson notes so I can keep on track with my practice sessions. I'm an adult learner and highly recommend her as an oboe teacher.
