My son Ivan (6 y.o.) is a student of Ms. Carina. Since Ivan started having lessons with Ms. Carina he had tremendous progress. He now often comes to a piano by himself and starts playing. Ms. Carina is a wonderful, patient person who loves our son and we look forward to continuing having lessons with her. "
