Dr. Teasley:
When I practice I am often thinking that I have learned from you not just voice lessons, but the way you are teaching, encourage, praise, tailored to the student's needs gradually so the student can progress and enjoy on own terms. I want to say thank you and appreciate you accept me as your students.

Dr. Teasley:
I just wanted to write and say think you for all the hard work you have put into my lessons. It feels really good to be singing again!
