It was great seeing you conduct at our Central Regional Orchestra. After talking with my students, be assured that they loved you! Your energy and knowledge is astounding.
Testimonial by Jennifer
Frank Loves Ms. Lyn and the lessons. He asked me if he could go again this week! This is great news as he was a bit grumpy about trying piano. Thank you again for all your work in getting the kids scheduled! And a big thank you to Ms. Lyn!
Testimonial by Kathy M
The style of education at the Academy is lively and subtle; no pressure before the kids are developmentally and musically ready to be challenged. (My daughter's) instructor is upbeat, happy and excited for accomplishments my daughter makes consistently.
