“Our 18 year old son Reid started piano lessons with Rene last July. (He plays the bass clarinet in Symphonic Band at his high school and decided he wanted to learn to play the piano.) Within a few months he was playing Strawberry Fields Forever at his first piano recital and moving us, his aunt and grandmother to tears. What Rene has been able to accomplish with Reid is such a short period of time is truly amazing. Rene talked with Reid to figure out where he was at musically, and took it from there. Reid now fills our house with songs by the likes of Pink Floyd and The Band. I highly recommend Rene for students of any age. She really is an incredible teacher! ” - Shelley Reid-Ketzler

“Two years ago, at the age of 61, I decided to fulfill a life long dream of learning to play the drums. I played the trumpet in highschool so figured I had some musical skills in me. So I went on Amazon and ordered a practice pad, sticks and the book "Stick Control for the Snare Drummer" and began my learning journey. I then contacted Rene and she assured me she could teach me how to play the drums, even at the age of 61. During my first lesson Rene had me playing a basic rock beat; I was hooked and have been having a blast ever since. Rene is not only a skilled drummer but a fantastic instructor as well. Rene challenges me during every lesson on counting, proper grip, technique and much more. Learning to play the drum is one of the most challenging things I have ever done and I am very fortunate to have Rene as my instructor.” - Ross Lehman

Her knowledge of music is at the top of her field and she is wonderful at relaying what she knows to students of any age. Many thanks to Rene for doing what she does so well! ” - Sally Churchill (parent)

We are incredibly grateful to be a part of her musical family and would highly recommend taking lessons. My child loves Rene. We hope we can continue lessons for years to come!” - Amber Tudor
