My daughter started piano as a beginner about a year ago with Judy. She LOVES going to her lessons and has done really well with the piano. Judy is a WONDERFUL teacher always encouraging my daughter and making learning fun! Since my mother was a piano teacher, I wanted my daughter to have strong background in theory. Judy is certainly giving her that and I am thrilled! I am very pleased!

My son is 6 years old and he is very happy taking piano lessons with Jesse. She is so nice, friendly and patient. My son started with Jesse about 3 weeks ago and so far so good! I recommend Jesse because she is very encouraging and supportive to my son. I am so glad I switched piano teachers because Jesse has all the qualities I was looking for in a piano instructor. My son is learning more each week and he is having fun taking lessons with Jesse!

Denise R. Palm Springs, CA

About Denise

I'€™ve always had a love for music. When I was 8 years old, I taught myself how to read music before my first piano lesson because I was so excited to learn. I continued taking piano lessons throughout my school days and became involved in choir in high school. When I began college I decided to study business. I auditioned for choir and realized that my dream was to become a music educator. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University with a Bachelor of Arts in Music. I studied piano, voice, clarinet, and music education. I had a lot of experience playing the piano and singing that I decided to learn the clarinet and join the concert band so I could have band experience. I was also involved in hand bell choir and continued to perform with the choir after I graduated. After
