« Karla Powell taught my daughter the oboe for a year and, had Karla stayed in our area, we would have loved her to continue the lessons. Karla's lessons were clearly fun, but at the same time we were thrilled at the progress our daughter made, moving from a rather shaky grade two to grade four level in a year. Karla was kind, patient, and excellent at finding interesting ways getting concepts across. I would recommend Karla most highly. »
