    Kris has been the first flute teacher of our daughter. We are amazed by the progress our daughter has been making but most importantly she started to love music, she plays flute every day, music has become an important part of her life. We recommend Kris to all our friends who are thinking to learn flute or teach their kids flute. Kris is a great musician and an extraordinary teacher.
