Mrs. Braun is a patient and dedicated teacher who strive to bring out the best in her students. She is able to explain even the most complicated musical theory in such a way that it is easy to comprehend. She has a way of putting you at ease, but at the same time, she will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself. She has a vast knowledge in music and keeps current on the latest teaching tools- CDs and books- which facilitates independent study. Her extensive knowledge in music has provided me with a greater understanding and appreciation of music and voice. Her friendly demeanor makes lessons enjoyable. I can attest from my personal experience that she has the ability to teach students of various ages and musical aptitudes. Most important of all, she is a teacher who listens. It is these qualities in her that motivates me to practice harder and to go all out to achieve my musical aspirations.
