I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

Margaret has been great! My 13 year old is enjoying lessons and is having fun learning a new style. Margaret gives clear directions, demonstrates how to play and explains everything really well. She recommends different bands to watch and listen to as well. She was understanding when I had to change the schedule for a couple lessons, which I really appreciated. We are so happy to have found such a wonderful online teacher.
