My granddaughter took piano and vocals from Rachel for two years. She took lessons at the school first and then at the home studio. The lessons were always Olivia's favorite. She felt loved and encouraged. Olivia was never afraid to try something. The recital was so special and felt professional. Wish we could drive to Marin each week to continue!
