Nama M, 1 year ago

To whom it may concern. My name is Nama, I am a professional and I started to play the harp as a hobby. Ambra has been teaching me for over one year now, starting from beginner level in harp to level 3. She had a very professional approach and we evaluated possibilities to apply for examination and she also recommended me for some concerts in London in early December this year. She advised me on the best instrument to hire and best music to practice. I am looking forward to continuing the studies with her over this year and I warmly recommend her! Kind regards, NM
