New! Tuesday small classes at OnTrack-Studios in Franklin, TN

Gayle Levee- All of Gayle's classes and workshops include step-by-step instruction and personal guidance.

Gayle Levee is classically trained as well as being an excellent instructor. Helping students build a solid foundation of strong basic skills is one of Gayle's most outstanding assets. She is also encouraging, positive and easy to be with.

Study at your own pace, in a small group, at the beautiful OnTrack classroom. We will design a curriculum just for you. Groups are limited to seven, so you will get lots of individual attention -- but they will fill fast, so don't wait!
