Trumpet · In studio

Holly has been teaching my fifteen year old trumpet and violin since my daughter was seven. Over the years, Holly has demonstrated exceptional patience and kindness with my daughter. Always approachable and flexible, Holly can work through any situation or concern with my child.

My 11 year old son has been taking lessons from Holly for 2 years now. Holly is patient and works with him on his level. A very comfortable, supportive environment. Very good notes and the other students are nice!
