My lesson got off to a slow start, but with Ingrid's high energy, I was able to catch on pretty quickly. I look forward to another lesson soon.

Ingrid is an amazing teacher. She challenges you and pushes you to be the best you can be but isn't afraid to have fun. Singing lessons are what I look forward to every week because I get to learn so much and also have a ton of fun.

I highly recommend Ingrid for piano lessons. I've owned a piano for many years and have been frustrated by my lack of knowledge and skill.  In just a few lessons I now understand chords and scales and inversions and so much more.  Ingrid broke things down for me in easy to understand terms, and now I am enjoying the piano so much more, thanks to her patience and knowledge.

I highly recommend Ingrid as a voice teacher. She not only has a strong music background, but her training technique works. I have had no prior voice training and new to the music world. With that being said, Ingrid's technique is super effective. She has taught me valuable techniques to never injure my vocal cords. With Ingrid as my teacher, I know that I am on my way to becoming the most amazing singer ever! Thank you for being such a wonderful giving person and always uplifting me! Cheers!!!!

Very talented and professional vocal coach. At first i felt very timid and doubtful of my singing capabilities but Ingrid helped me achieve confidence in myself to be able to do it. Her techniques and exercises are highly effective. She is very encouraging and highly spirited and pushes you to maximize your talents and capabilities. Thanks Ingrid!
