Parents & experts said, "Five Stars!"
“Our 4 year old son just finished a week-long music course. He had a fantastic time and we couldn’t be happier with the teacher and the methodology. I learned a bit myself in those 5 days and I know I’ll be able to connect with our son musically in a more meaningful way. I wish every child could spend some time with Ekanem!” – Debra E., Houston, TX
“My daughter was singing the songs over and over yesterday at home.” –Erin M., Stafford, TX
"Ms. Ebinne has a beautiful singing voice that makes an excellent model for young singers. She also has incredible musicianship skills. I had several opportunities to observe her teach children. The children were very attracted to her and seemed to be enjoying her playful, inviting lesson. These children appeared to be very comfortable exploring their voices and their physical space. She is artistic in the way she makes her purposeful strategies seem fun."
- Jay M. Beams II, Vocal / General Music Specialist, Hillsborough City Elementary West, Hayward, CA
"One thing that stood out to me when I met Ekanem was her enthusiasm and her desire to help young children learn music. Her music classes are delightful. She is a wonderful model and teacher and is well educated in ways to help young children learn music."
