Susan, Adult Student

“Bobby is a fantastic music teacher and a fun and sweet person. Each lesson provided me with tons of new knowledge. I hadn’t taken a piano lesson since I was a kid so I was apprehensive to begin again, and working with Bobby was the best possible way to reconnect with the piano after all these years. I highly recommend Bobby Apperson.”
