Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yana is a wonderful teacher I was a bit hesitant of enrolling my daughter in lessons because of the expense not only for the lessons but I knew piano lessons meant a piano or keyboard would also need to be purchased. Yana is so great with her, she has given her a love and better understanding of music. Yana is very patient and a great teacher, she understands my daughter very well and challenges her without crushing her spirits. I highly recommend her, this has been worth every penny!
