My daughter took lessons with Shannon for several years. Shannon provided great instruction and lots of encouragement to boost my daughter's confidence and raise her performance level. She provided music that my daughter actually enjoyed playing. My daughter was always challenged, but never discouraged. Shannon was always professional and pleasant, and ran her lessons on time.
