Testimonials from current and former Skype students:

“Jenny is a dream teacher. I first heard about her from my high school band director when I was looking for an instructor to help me improve my music abilities. She had helped me improve from the very first lesson with her. I was sad when she was moving away because I had improved so much with her. Jenny suggested that we try Skype lessons, and I wasn’t really sure how well those would work, but I wanted to to keep taking lessons from her so I gave it a shot. It was well worth it! I was able to keep taking lessons with Jenny, and I could have them at home while she is away. She is full of valuable knowledge! I highly recommend Skype lessons with her!”

“Skype lessons with Jenny have been a pleasure and a major contributor to my musical growth. Having Jenny as a private teacher gives me the one-on-one attention I need and the clarinet specific information that has opened up several opportunities and experiences I couldn’t have gotten on my own.”

– Julia L.
1st chair All County Band, Florida

“Skype lessons are great for teacher to student instruction. It has always been simple to use and allows for flexibility in scheduling. Also, Skype lessons do not hinder the student’s ability to comprehend or learn any material–the teacher is still there giving the same instructions as they would in person. I would highly recommend this platform for lessons with Jenny Maclay. It is very effective and will not stop anyone from achieving great things.”
