I loved taking lessons with Khemya. My job interfered with my lessons. What I enjoyed most is I felt my music which my sound strange but as a senior adult is makes all the difference.

My grandson is four years old and I was so pleased with Khemya's patience and ability to connect with him and keep him on task. Khemya is passionate about what she does and it shows. We both had a great experience. I think he is excited about continuing to learn more.

Khemya is so patient, and was able to make a connection with Rajen so easily. Her empathy and overall sense of caring really made the lessons special. She communicated with him in a really great way, and he got a lot out of the lessons. We can't recommend her enough!
