I have know Michelle several years. She had a great music school in Georgia. Her students were sad to see her go when she moved to NC. With her teaching on line now everyone can start their lessons again. She is a great teacher who has patience with children of all ages. Looking forward to being able to take adult classes. I am so happy that she will be available on line giving lessons. I am so excited!

Having never personally met Michelle face to face, our online experience was more than expected. Our 7 children all benefited from having Michelle as our personal music coach. She was always available by phone and Skype if needed. My children learned to read music and to play by ear thanks to Michelle’s techniques. I would gladly recommend her for any family big or small.

She was an awesome violin teacher for my 2 kids. She was extremely patient and creative with my younger son and helped my older son excel very quickly. I highly recommend her.

My wife and I decided to enroll both of our kids in music lessons, and after careful consideration we felt Ms.Teague would be a perfect fit. Her ability to retain our 6 year olds attention was astonishing, and method of teaching proved to be exemplary. I would recommend Ms.Teague for any age, and or group.
