    I love Bonnie! She is so kind and patient. She is a powerhouse of musical knowledge but not in your face about it, its just a part of her that she shares with her students. A real musician who understands the highs and lows of learning an instrument. Ive taken a lot of what she has taught me about making the most of my practice time and shared it with my children who are also learning to play other instruments. Learning piano from Bonnie has enriched my life.
