What our customers are saying

Inspired. Creative. Dedicated. This is how I would describe Candace Lehenbauer. I have had the privilege of working with Candace on several occasions and in various capacities: she was my pianist when I sang; alongside her as an educator; under her direction when she directed our co-op. She is a wonderful, patient teacher with a passion for music and a love for children. She is a strong leader with a clear vision and drive. I would highly recommend Candace in any educational capacity.
