What an awesome teacher! Krista listened to what I wanted, came up with a plan to get me out and playing fast, and we did it! A great experience!

Krista is an awesome teacher! She is very patient and thorough in her lessons and her encouragement has given me the confidence to play better than I ever thought I could!

I have worked with Krista both as a teacher and a fellow musician, and cannot recommend her more highly!
She is very knowledgeable, presents her lessons clearly and with an emphasis on enjoying the music, and also seems to have infinite patience! Best teacher out there!
