It was a pleasure to meet Jenny. Jenny demonstrated a tremendous amount of understanding and patience. My granddaughter was not having a good day; Jenny was able to work with her and made progress.
We are looking forward to the next session.
Extremely friendly and looking forward to working with her!
Jenny provided my wife and I with an excellent first lesson, and we're looking forward to continuing with her. She is kind, knowledgeable, and provides gentle critiques of her students' performances.
