Over just one year with Dr. Snyder, I saw such improvement in my playing and performing. Her approach is always direct, honest, respectful, and extremely effective. I was always surprised at how much more comfortable I could feel about my ability to do something after just one lesson.

I took two semesters of lessons with Kallie at FSU. Her expertise and abundance of knowledge on technique, posture, and musicality really helped me as a student with constant recitals and repertoire to be learned. No matter what problems I experienced, Kallie was incredibly flexible and patient at finding a solution, and she always had a million tricks up her sleeve for everything. Out of all my teachers at FSU, she was the most devoted and patient. She is also an amazing performer, and always motivated me to play my best. She always brought a positive and radiant energy to each lesson, and she really cares about her students.
