Tracy's students say:

"Tracy is an awesome teacher and great fun! I've taken lessons from other people and could not learn to play. You will learn lots and keep coming back for more."

"I was nearly at a point of abandoning my music and Tracy very quickly had me playing and singing with JOY!"

"As a woman and a very beginner guitar player, I was nervous to join in a group. Tracy helped me push through. She really knows how to keep people involved and moving forward at a pace that is challenging - but not overwhelming."
