Leonie Adams has excellent work ethics. She arrived early and made sure she knows where she would be playing. I did not have to worry at all. The children loved watching her play at our school's Christmas fair. Thank you Leonie! If you need a reliable and talented musician, you should definitely contact her.

Leonie played beautifully at my father's funeral as part of a duo, and was extremely kind and professional at all times. Highly recommended.
