After attending a piano recital featuring my teacher's students, I was so impressed with the skill of even her youngest students that I decided to take lessons myself. As an adult student, I have been very pleased with the training I have received and the progress I have made through my teacher’s instruction. She is a gifted teacher! She is patient and encouraging. In addition to teaching the fundamentals and providing a solid musical foundation, she is able to tailor lessons to the student's specific needs. I have recommended and will continue to recommend her to anyone interested in taking piano instruction!"

"We want the school to know how pleased we are with the lessons and the teacher. My son is having fun with his teacher and is learning an amazing amount of information at the same time. The drum instructor is very good at presenting new concepts, keeping my son's attention and checking for his comprehension along the way... A parent doesn't need to sit and observe long to see the amazing drums/music talent and education his teacher has... It is exciting to see him share his talents and love of music with my son. We have a new appreciation for drummers through him. We appreciate this school and look forward to our future drum lessons."
