      Hoorah! I teach private piano and voice. And I've taught general/choral elementary
      music in public schools for 12 years. Its nice to hear a parent quoting the research!

      BTW - greetings! I am Lady Ysabiau la Jolicoeur d'Avignon - from sunny Trimaris.
      Glad to be on board and hope to be of service - lend my voice to the cause.
