Very enjoyable piano lessons. Excellent teacher and talented musician with a friendly approach to lessons. Everything was explained and shown to me clearly. I can now play pieces that I could not have imagined playing before.
I enjoyed my English lessons with Natasha. She made the lessons interesting and I learnt something useful each lesson. Now I feel more confident and I have a better grasp of English grammar. Lessons involved a range of activities so that made them more enjoyable.
