Christy V. (parent of former student)

My two daughters have the privilege of taking piano lessons from Barbara. I feel so lucky to have found her for a teacher. She is a fabulous musician and really cares about her students and shares the joy of making beautiful music. She teaches them to play beautifully and musically. My daughters are progressing so much on the piano! I feel very fortunate to have her teach my daughters!
