I cannot recommend Lee enough! I'm a slow learner and she has made me feel like the complete opposite! She really knows her stuff and can break down every little part that you might not understand in the most patient of ways. And it's helpful that she's just lovely to be around! Really happy I found her!

My first lesson was great. My homework assignment makes sense and I am excited to learn. I have never played a stringed instrument before, and Lee is at once guiding and letting me explore on my own.

Mrs. Quick was an awesome bassoon teacher who taught me the instrument well in an astoundingly short amount of time. She was flexible and willing to adapt to my sometimes hectic schedule. I would highly recommend her as a bassoon teacher.

My 13 year old son was excited for every lesson with the teacher. He said that he had learnt a lot in 2 weeks than he did in a whole year.

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.
