    Claire is very involved in lesson, giving lots of feedback throughout and very positive as well. She was prompt and very well prepared for lesson. Gave activities and suggestions for practice throughout the week. Gave me suggestions for appropriate books and where to purchase them. My children had a very good experience for their first lesson and we will continue weekly lessons with her!
