"I've been taking songwriting lessons with Kit for several months now. I highly recommend her for anyone who is new to music theory or has dabbled and has some experience. She created a lesson plan tailored to my goals, skill level, and musical background. She's always patient with me and has a great sense of humor, and makes me feel comfortable to ask questions and think about music theory in different ways. I feel that I've grown leaps and bounds in my skill and level of understanding when it comes to music theory, songwriting, and piano."
