My lessons are great! She is incredibly knowledgeable in both experience, and the literature aspect of the piano instrument and I plan on keeping my lessons with her as long as I can.

Lisa is a multi-talented musician. She has been gifted with voice as well as the understanding and ability to play music. It was an honor to be in the Mt. pleasant choir and be led by her. She shows compassion and patience and her love for music is contagious. She is a blessing to everyone she teaches .

Lisa is lovely person and a consummate musician. Her vocal skills and guitar technique are flawless, and her gift and craftsmanship for songwriting is world-class. Having since gone on to a very promising and exciting career in the music industry, I look back on my days learning from and sharing the stage with Lisa with both fondness and an appreciation for how much they improved my own musicianship.

I have been taking lessons with Lisa for about six years. She really takes the time to make sure you understand what you are learning. She has helped me really understand the instrument I'm learning, and is overall a great teacher.

I'm not a musician but I love beautiful music and Lisa makes beautiful music! However, I did work with her in another capacity and found her to be very knowledgeable, capable, patient, and so sweet. I love Lisa and I'm sure her students do too!

I've known Lisa since I gave her guitar lessons as a young lady. Being raised in a wonderful and more importantly, musical family, in addition to her education and professional experience, make her uniquely qualified to teach in a wide variety of curriculum. I'm extremely proud to be a part of her musical journey and I know she will bring the gift and joy of music to her students.

Lisa is a very talented musician with both instrumental and voice. She is passionate about her music and those who are singing or playing catch that passion from her. Definitely an excellent teacher. We were sorry to lose her when she left PA!

Lisa Abrams is a really great music instructor. She took the time to help me learn several different things in music, which really helped me out in getting roles in my High School musicals. Also she is really nice and took the time to answer any questions that I had.

Lisa made a big difference in my daughter's vocal abilities. She worked around my daughter's disabilities and gave her confidence on stage. I would definitely recommend her.

Lisa worked with my son for nearly five years. She turned him from a child almost paralyzed with shyness to a competent and successful performer. She was patient and very kind with him, and taught him not only voice but piano as well.

Lisa is excellent in teaching certain rolls. Most impressive to me was when I wanted to transpose music to tablature. After transposing she wrote it out a different way to fit my style of playing. I needed to be more focused on the left hand rather than my right hand. Her level of patience is great and I feel very comfortable talking to her.

I have taken lessons from several people, but Lisa was by far the most professional instructor I have used. She really takes the time to make sure you are getting a grasp on the information she is teaching you. I really wish I would have used her before going to the other instructors that I feel were only trying to make money. I would recommend this lady to anyone looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument.
