Customer Testimonials

I've been an active musician for about 12 years. Play a number of instruments and have spent my ENTIRE career looking for the right teacher. Kristen immediately knew what to do and for the first time in my life I can express myself vocally the way I've always dreamed. Words cannot express my gratitude. Kristen WILL take you to the next level, that's a guarantee.


I love music and always wanted to learn piano. I got to know Kristen through Thumbtack and started learning piano in June. It's been amazing, Kristen is really easy to work with, she is flexible about schedule and her teaching is awesome. The best part is she sees to it that you get the things right and perfect, makes you understand in easy manner and is very passionate about her work. I love to learn piano with Kristen and always look forward for my piano lessons with her. I highly recommend Kristen.
