This is a great program.  My teacher is not only an amazing player, but is also knowledgeable in every aspect of music.  I have improved greatly under Ms. Nguyen.  My technique has progressed dramatically, which has made my playing a lot easier and more enjoyable.  I really appreciate Ms. Nguyen’s attention to me so I can improve.  She has made my whole playing experience better.
