Singing · In studio

Ms. Maja Lisa was very welcoming, patient, talented and encouraging. For a first lesson, I felt that I could learn a great deal under her guidance.

Piano · In studio

Maja has infinite patience and makes the lessons fun. Her sweet puppy is the first to greet you when you walk into the studio and is obviously well trained since he doesn't howl when he's listening to my playing. :) We set some goals and targets and I know that I'll be playing the tunes that I want by Christmas. What do you think Maja, concert pianist by this time next year. LOL... or maybe just Twinkle, twinkle little star.
