“I’ve had one remote group lesson lead by Steph Payne of Unstrung Music and I learned SO much in that one hour!
I was impressed with her knowledge, and her calm method of explaining things clicked in my mind super fast! I recommend Steph as a music teacher, and I look forward to working with her more to increase my skills! Thank you Steph! The gift of music is ongoing, and I am truly grateful.”
