Testimonial

" Jayne is a gifted teacher. The moment she started playing l knew l was in good hands. Her playing exudes experience yet she makes it look so easy. Not only that but more importantly, she knows how to break down and simplify things so that they are easily understood. Krissy is patient, makes you feel comfortable and is fun to be around. My piano lesson is the highlight of my week.
