July, 2012 Feedback from the mother of a student of Daniel Wilson (Trumpet)
"Everyone is very friendly and the instructors seem to be very good in their area of expertise. There is also a 'spiritual tone' among the people there and it is very family oriented. We had a very positive experience and may return again. I would highly recommend your studio to family and friends!"
7/11/12 A note from the mother of a student of Rebecca Brown
"Thanks, Rebecca, for always expecting the most out of [my son], and for being flexible to adapt your lesson presentation, etc. to reach his style/level of understanding. Thanks, too, for the extra time you spent arranging his Star Wars music. You definitely earn an A+++ as his teacher!!!"
9/22/2010 A note from Arlie Stanley Age: 71
I've had a life long ambition to learn to play piano. Because of job and family requirements, I never had the opportunity. At retirement, I had developed arthritis -- very painful in hands and wrists. I saw Mrs. Brown's listing in the Burleson ISD [Community Education] booklet. I relayed to her my goal and that I didn't know whether I could stay with it because of the arthritis. I've been taking lessons for 1 1/2 years and have noticed increased mobility in the hands and wrists. The pain is still there, but not nearly as bad. Piano has been a blessing! Fulfilling a dream and, I believe, helping with the arthritis.
August 16, 2010 Email from John Cameron Short-term Adult Student (John, a tomato salesman, was put through some interesting training through the company he works for. He was assigned an "impossible" project, to get him realize that nothing is impossible. His assignment? To learn a Broadway song and perform it in New York City in front of a large audience. Before coming to our studio, John had no background in music, whatsoever. This is the email received after his performance in New York) "Subj.: New York loved me!! Hello Rebecca
Iam back from NYC and want to share that I rocked the house!! The coaches were pleased with how you both had me prepared, which made it very easy for them to introduce acting to go with singing. Though I had to cut it short with you both, you had me in great shape. The performance was fantastic and recieved a standing ovation from the audience.
It was a great experience that started with Mountain Valley Studios
