I am so excited that I found Lisa. As a senior student returning to clarinet after 46 years, I wanted to makes sure that I start with the basics so that I don't get into any bad habits. Everything Lisa covered and suggested in my first lesson was on point with everything I've been reading. I am confident that I found the right teacher at the right time.

Liza has been a wonderful teacher for my fifth grade daughter. Izzie is inspired to practice while away with encouragement from Liza’s instructions!

Just within 5 short lessons, my 10 year old son has greatly improved in playing the saxophone. Lisa was kind and patient with him, and I definitely plan to continue lessons.

Lisa is trying to teach a senior on how to play again. I very rarely stick to what Lisa has set up for me to practice. Unlike youthful players we are not following a lesson book or books. But she is patient with me and we get along great and best of all i actually think i am doing better than i expected.
My guess would be that this is my third renewal.
