Feedback For Ksenija (2)
I have been having lessons with Ksenija for several weeks and I am really enjoying it. Ksenija is a very thorough and professional teacher and I feel my learning is really accelerating after many years away from the keys!
Ksenija was professional and punctual.
We managed to get a time slot at school with the music teacher so had not taken up her lessons but would not hesitate to outside term time.
