"Definitely Crystal has what it takes to be a great teacher to students at all levels. She is very approachable & friendly. I'm an adult student returning from a sabbatical from music but I plan to bring my daughter to her also."

Angela Baker

"Crystal’s style of teaching was the perfect balance of precision and discipline, with relaxed atmosphere and working with the the flow and needs of the student. She knows what it takes to become a true musician, and when she would demonstrate her skills while teaching, it was apparent that she has a true love of the instrument - and it was contagious! Thank you Crystal!

Joe Van Duren
