"Dear Ms. Kalantarova,
I wanted you to know how grateful we are for all you've done for the boys. Julian and Sebastian have made so much progress, thanks to you. What I especially appreciate is how you motivate them to learn about and enjoy music. I never have to argue with them to practice piano! You have an amazing ability to inspire a good attitude! We look forward to another year of piano with you."
