I am getting quite full that I may not be able to travel to your house for a lesson at this point. You can come to my house/or a church for lessons. I also offer online lessons.

  • Larry Himelein

    Very good instructor.

  • Karen Snyder-Shaffer

    Ms Lightner works very well with my daughters. They are enjoying themselves tremendously! She is kind and soft spoken and my daughters respond very well to her.

  • Kevin Vannoy

    Holly is very attentive and goes well beyond expectation to ensure the concepts being taught are clear. She is receptive to any questions I've had up to this point, and always responds in a reasonable amount of time. She is very polite and respectful. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to get the most out of their time.
