As a 35 year old, who hadn't picked up an instrument in a long while, I was nervous to begin lessons with a new teacher and an undiscovered instrument. Miss Sharon put me at ease immediately and after the first lesson, I believed I could conquer anything. Like anything I've ever tried, you have to fail a lot to begin to regularly succeed. This is fundamental to truly learning any instrument. Thanks to Miss Sharon, I have the confidence she feeds me and praise she gives me as small signs I am progressing well despite my stumbles along this road of failure to mastery! She is truly knowledgeable in her instrument as well as an excellent teacher!
