The downtown neighborhood of Deep Ellum came about in the late1800s as part of a huge blues movement, producing such influential acts as Blind Lemon Jefferson, T-Bone Walker, Lead Belly, and the incomparable master Robert Johnson. While Deep Ellum has seen a recent resurgence as a popular area for the music entertainment industry, love and celebration of music has spread throughout all of Dallas and its many suburbs over the years.

She is a wonderful teacher for beginners like me, but with her skill level, I can see her as being an exceptional teacher for more advanced students as well.
