Lisa is a wonderful teacher! Makes everything crystal clear and is very patient and kind. Helped improve my skills tremendously. Would definite recommend.
Lee has been teaching me to play an acoustic/electric bass. I have some of the lowest musical aptitude one could hope to find in a human being. With her kindness and patience she's worked thru my mental blocks and provided a lesson plan tailored for my aptitude level. With her experience as a writer, performer and instructor she's a wonderfully talented teacher. I recommend her highly.+ Read More
