Deciding to take music lessons from Leanne was the best decision I have made in quite some time. I have always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument, particularly the banjo as I like its sound. Realizing this was a big step for a musically challenged person in late middle age, she suggested the ukulele, and when I got comfortable with the instrument, only then she allowed me to get my banjo.
Leanne is absolutely the most kind and patient person I have ever known. As bad as I may have sounded, she kept smiling and kept encouraging. A talented singer, songwriter and performer, you always want to do your best for her. Anything less and you felt you had disappointed her. Not only was she an instructor, she also became a friend and confidant.
A changed work assignment, then loss of my job has kept me from continuing my lessons with Leanne. I now live in another state; therefore Skype may become an option. As soon as I get a bit more settled in my new environment, I plan to pursue my lessons with Leanne again. I feel anyone that wants to pursue learning to play a musical instrument would miss a great life experience by not sitting down with Leanne for a few lessons. She truly has the gift of teaching which we should all enjoy.
