"Both of my children Paula and Alex have attended lessons at B'Music since 2015. They both do piano with Izabela and guitar with Mauro. Paula also does vocal training with Lauryn . They both absolutely love every minute of it. The atmosphere is super-friendly and they have learned to play instruments really quickly. I would highly recommend B'Music to anyone considering starting music lessons for their child. Keep up the fantastic work Izabela and everyone at B'Music!"
