KeriAnne is awesome!
She worked with my daughter for classical piano and vocal training. KeriAnne has a passion for music and a desire to teach that made each class fun and satisfying. My daughter learned quite a bit and KeriAnne really worked to stretch my daughter to new heights she never realized she could achieve.
I would highly recommend KeriAnne to anyone interested in expanding their child's musical passions.
