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.+ Read More
