My two oldest kids have been taking piano lessons with Christie for almost a year, and we are crazy about her. Times when Christie has been unavailable, Deanna has given them their lessons. She picks up where Christie left off joyfully and seamlessly. My son is wary of new teachers, and Deanna and Christie have both worked with him confidently and it’s been a joy for all of us to see the growth – both musically and personally – in both my big kids. During this COVID crisis, Christie and Deanna have also proven themselves to be a source of support and understanding while we navigate this crisis and the profound emotional and financial impacts our family is experiencing. I am so grateful for their presence in our lives.
