I have been taking lessons with Frances Kramer for 4 years. I am 51 years old, and I never had lessons previously. When I contacted her, I indicated that my number one goal was to play the standards, and I wanted to be able to play You Don’t Know Me within 3 months. She did it! (It wasn’t Ray Charles, but, people loved it, and I have since perfected it.) Frances taught me the basics and enough theory and technical pointers to make my dream come true; quickly. She clearly adapts her approach to the needs and wants of her students. Frances is very accommodating, and approachable. She is a rare ultra-gifted and talented musician, who is also empathetic. I am progressing wonderfully under her tutelage. She has given me the gift of music, which provides me great happiness and peace. Thank you, Frances!
