One thing I like about Emily is that she is always trying to connect with me. She always asks me about how school is going and about choir. She is also incredibly encouraging about the piano even though I am a beginner.
Christianna is a breath of fresh air from the moment she steps into our home. She is positive and interested in what [my child] has to say. I think [my child] is motivated to practice her new material each week to make Christianna proud.

We have really enjoyed lessons with Matthew! He is patient, kind, and has been a wonderful piano teacher. Matthew makes a great effort to connect to his students. He is silly and makes lessons fun.
Matthew is a patient and kind teacher, and he makes funny jokes.

Matthew has been teaching both of our children for 6 years now. As a mom who grew up playing piano, I love Matthew's teaching style. Not only Matthew teaches my kids how to read music and play the instrument, he shows them how to enjoy playing music and how to play the song so others can enjoy it too! He uses simple words and examples, something that young children can understand, to teach music theory and concepts. He is very patient with my children, as it could be challenging to keep their attention especially at young age.
Meghan has the patience of a Saint, the song finding abilities of a Magician, the motivation skills of a Therapist, and the most useful practice tips of any Coach I've ever known! Many thanks to Meghan for being all that and more.
She makes piano fun for the kids in a way that motivates them to want to continue. Meghan adapts to the kids' interests and makes every lesson fun. Both kids are always eager for piano lesson day. It is enjoyable to hear Meghan play while I am usually working or cooking a few rooms away. She is so considerate and caring with both kids.
Meghan is a delight! I'm one of her older students (probably the oldest) and this grandma looks forward to her piano lessons and that is because of Meghan!

He's funny, he's nice, and he is very patient and gentle with me while I'm trying to learn the songs. And he always is teaching me new songs!
Jake was so great with our daughter and really patient with her level of learning. He was a joy and would highly recommend.

Jake has taught 4 of our children over the years. They have learned how to play guitar, ukulele, piano, and music theory along the way. Our family agree that he is the nicest person we know!
Jake has been teaching my son guitar for three years now. He is such a patient and encouraging teacher. We are very thankful for the positive impact he has had!

Nolan, did a great job of engaging me in each lesson. His approach to understanding where you are in life and your expectations for wanting to learn set him apart. If you're fortunate to have him as an instructor, then take time to see him perform. I was impressed.
Nolan was a very patient and kind teacher for our young ukulele player. Always on time and communicated clearly with any changes to the schedule. We are very thankful that our child was able to learn a unique instrument at such a young age, and Nolan was a big part of that.

Lily is enjoying Christianna greatly. She looks forward to the lessons each week. Christianna has a cheerful and patient disposition. We are very pleased with her work with Lily so far.
The lessons are going well and the kids have adapted to Christanna very well. Vivian shared a good comment on Christianna, "She builds my confidence in my piano playing and that I use in my every day life."
We thank [Carmela] from the bottom of our hearts for sharing [her] knowledge and making Dia a better musician! Music makes this world a better place and I am thankful that Dia had a talented and gentle teacher to guide her through the year. We will miss [her] a lot!! [Carmela was] always very dedicated on [her] role as a teacher! I am sure [she] would make a great teacher, and may God bless [her] and help [her] guide [her] towards what [she] desire[s] to do!!
