I love studying with Charlena. She is a really great teacher and she’s super-fun. She’s also really talented. When she gives me tips, she explains it in a way that I can really “get”.

Age 15, Vocal and Guitar Lessons, Summer Camps

Charlena is awesome. She is really kind and easy to understand. I feel so comfortable singing with her and I love that I get to choose my own songs! She hosted the best ever jam session birthday party for me and my friends! And her summer camps are my favourite part of the whole summer!!

Age 10, Vocal Lessons, Rock Band Jam Sessions, Summer Camps

We’re thrilled with Charlena’s instruction. She perfectly blends professionalism and personal attention. And it’s clear that she really cares about her students. We highly recommend her studio!
