VERY helpful first lesson. Almost immediately, Glenda was able to listen to my playing and make useful suggestions for improvement. It was a very good lesson. I look forward to learning even more under her skillful tutelage. A GREAT choice for anyone looking to master the Hammond organ.

Definitely keeps the kids engaged and is quick to suggest a different activity to help adjust something else, for instance my daughter s having trouble keeping the bow straight in her movements and Glenda was quick to think of a few different ways to help
