Very knowledgeable - Ear Training

Ms. Monique has a warm personality that shines through her playing. She is very flexible and adaptable. She was able to go all the way back to the basics to help me. I am an older beginner. I want to learn to play gospel church music by ear and she wowed me! Carolyn
