How do you say a teacher has good features. A particular instrument has good features.

Liz is a good teacher for someone that wants to take piano lessons. She is knowledgeable and very patient. She is also a Christian which is a very important matter to me when I determine who will be instructing me in any course. I made a wise decision. I look forward to each of my lesson.

Sandra has been a wonderful piano teacher for my daughter Ayn. Ayn started taking lessons from Sandra in April this year. Within the short period of time, she has made a lot of progress. Sandra is also a very caring person.

I highly recommend Sandra if you are looking for someone to teach piano.

Thanks,

Sandra H. is a teacher you can rely on to encourage you to perform not only for yourself, but for an audience. I can't remember a lesson day when Ms. Sandra wouldn't tell me, once I had mastered a piece, to play for the church congregation, or to one of her colleagues' open recitals. One specific time, I was asked to play 3 songs for the congregation by someone who heard Ms. Sandra specifically praising my skill. I was told to form a group of 3 total, so I invited a friend and my brother to play the trumpet and the violin, respectively. Ms. Sandra was very encouraging and determined to assist in perfecting the pieces I would do within the week I had to prepare, and I'm certain that without the help, the performance would have been a complete, total disaster. She not only provided a teacher's support - helping me practice the correct rhythm and speed, to name the parts I had trouble with - she also gave me a friend's support, telling me not to allow stage-fright to consume my confidence before I even had a chance to start.

What can I say? She's a great teacher, and cares for her students beyond the borders of the musical world.

Connor T. Richmond, VA

About Connor

I first fell in love with music at the age of 7 after hearing Led Zeppelin's "œBlack Dog". I soon after received my first guitar and started learning all of my favorite classic rock songs. Over time my tastes began to branch out to include all kinds of music from country to jazz. Knowing that I wanted to pursue a long-term career in music, I decided to choose a college with a strong music program, and received a bachelor's degree in music performance and jazz studies from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2010. As a jazz guitarist, I perform regularly in a variety of settings with various ensembles. For the last several years I have played at various venues in the Richmond area, such as Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens, Tobacco Company restaurant, Havana 59, Maymont, and at ...

He is GREAT at making me understand theory, which I never have. He's also exciting and challenging in learning how to look at music and anticipate/understand where it's going versus my habit of only looking one note ahead at a time. I wish he was a little more interested in teaching classical music, but I also understand that the new stuff I am learning from him will greatly improve my playing of that.
