Ms. Konomi has a very holistic approach to teaching music. She was very patient and methodical, which I found very beneficial. After studying with her, I feel that my understanding and appreciation of music theory has really grown. I would not have been able to thrive at an American conservatory without Ms. Konomi's expertise!
