Piano lessons with Abby for my 11-year old have been so worthwhile, Abby is an excellent teacher and has an amazing way of breaking things down so that they are understandable. She is always keeping it light, fun, safe, and supportive. Abby is very patient and supportive, especially with a shy tween! She  puts a lot of thought into how she presents the material to my daughter. Her lessons are engaging and my daughter has learned so much. Abby is great at building confidence and keeping lessons fun and engaging through a variety of activities that improve conversation! I am thrilled that she is back at the studio!”
