"Thank you so much for your work with xxx this year! I had no idea what to expect with virtual class,
but I'm so pleased with his progress." - AF
“I had been asking my daughters for several years if they were interested in taking piano lessons, especially because they both sing in choirs and I knew how beneficial it would be for sight-singing. But they were so busy it was hard to make it a priority. So, when the opportunity to take a group lesson over zoom came up, I knew it would be a good introduction to the idea, without feeling like we had to make a long commitment to it. Pamela is a wonderful teacher who has been so encouraging! They made a lot of progress during that first 8-week session summer of 2020, and by the time it ended they were both eager to continue with weekly lessons. They have continued to learn so much and gotten excited about selecting music just to play for fun. We live out of state, so the remote-learning format has been great for us too.” – PD
Thank you! You guys are just amazing! What you've accomplished with him is amazing to us.
We know the challenges of virtually teaching music first hand and have been
nothing but impressed with your continuous encouragement and ability to challenge him.
We can't thank you both, Thomas and Pamela, enough for lighting a spark in him.
Plus, our daughter now wants lessons!
“Ms. J - I want to share how grateful my wife and I are for your group lessons. Our daughter, began learning piano with you in the summer of 2019 in a group lesson of 7 children and "tag-along" parents. With each lesson, you incorporated games for students to learn notes and musical notation, easy to follow instructions for proper hand positioning, and playing simple tunes to gain confidence. Since that initial group lesson, she has continued with you in a small group (paired) setting and now on 1-on-1 lessons." - IH
"The group lessons were instrumental in our daughter's development. She learned to understand the piano as an instrument with such a wide range and gained a deep love for playing it. In the group setting, you were able to keep students of various abilities and backgrounds together as a unit while providing individual feedback. Most importantly for my daughter, your patience with students of varied learning abilities was quite evident. Thank you again for your continued work with her! "- JD
“Having my shy son be able to be in a group setting for piano lessons gave him more confidence to continue and see there are others out there that enjoy the piano as well.” – EH
