Please feel free to contact me to hire me for an event or for private classical guitar lessons. It is possible to take lessons where I live in Bedford, England or on Skype (if outside of Bedfordshire area). Students on Skype must be at least at the intermediate level. Through Skype I have taught for over three years with much success. A few of the students have auditioned and gotten into university and have even won competitions. I can be reached at valeriehartzell@gmail.com

Thank you!
Valerie Hartzell
