My whole time at Groove was truly memorable and some of my most-loved years professionally. I learned to play guitar, I learned what joy and awe looks like on hundreds of young faces. I will always feel grateful to whatever it was that prompted me to answer the ad for groovy music teacher. At Groove I met some of the most talented and generous people I have ever had the privilege to know. --- Janet C
