Over the past year, our young daughters have had the good fortune of having incredibly gifted teachers at Smiths Falls Music. As a parent I am comforted by their patience and relatability that allows my daughters to really express themselves and enjoy their lessons. I strongly encourage any parent who thinks their child may enjoy learning music, to give them them the opportunity to have lessons with a gifted musician and an incredible teacher. ” - Andrew H, Smiths Falls
