Perfect! Gosh, Cecilia clicked right in on my learning path and I am progressing with her faster than I could have imagined. Very skilled at the piano, and at getting the concepts across. Not a task master or just a cheerleader, great back and forth with cycles of playing and feedback that is super helpful and exciting as I am progressing faster than I could have hoped and enjoying it. I highly recommend Cecilia!
