Anango Testimonial



I am drumming to Jazz music with Lauren and it is great fun. Lauren is a wonderful teacher who makes the lessons very enjoyable. I love the classes and have been listening to and playing a lot of different songs. Thank you, Lauren.



Bell offers a great opportunity to explore pieces from across the repertoire and helps me to improve on my skills as a musician. The teachers are very friendly.
