Eden M. one year agoMy son thoroughly enjoyed his percussion lessons with Emily. She worked with his interests to try out different instruments, from drums to bells. Her personal touch of sending me video clips of him practicing was very touching. I have observed Emily work with children in a variety of settings and she has an incredible rapport with them, not to mention a terrific sense of humor.
