Payton has been instructing my son in guitar for about six weeks now. He is very patient, knowledgeable and friendly. He relates very well to my son and seems to be genuinely interested in my son's progress as a guitar player.

Payton is wonderful! He works great with our 5 year old daughter! He is very patient and breaks things down in a way that our daughter understands as well as my wife and I who have no musical talent at all. It makes it very easy for us to help her practice! We think he is great and our daughter can't wait for her lesson every week!

Knowledgeable, Encouraging, Experienced

I came to her studio with no singing experience whatsoever. I was a little nervous to start singing in front of people, especially since I thought my voice had dried up for lack of use. But I felt totally comfortable from the very first lesson and I soon looked forward to singing every week!

After only a few short weeks with her guidance I have increased my range by a perfect fourth up and a major second down! My vocal control has greatly improved and now I KNOW I can sing confidently. Definitely recommend this instructor.

My Grand Daughter has been taking piano from Linda for over a year & she absolutely loves it! She has learned so much and always looks forward to going to her lesson. Linda is very professional and at the same time makes learning fun. Her location is convenient to get to from about anywhere on the south side of Indy. She organizes a yearly recital, which makes it nice for the students to experience performing in front of an audience. I would recommend Linda to anyone who would love to learn piano from a great teacher.

Excellent teacher

I happened to find Linda through an internet search, and I am so pleased that we did. She is excellent with my 11 year old daughter. My daughter is always excited to go to her lesson each week. She has only been taking lessons for 5-6 months, but I can see much improvement, and I can see the difficulty of the songs increase. I think my favorite part is that Linda is so patient and encouraging. Each week, after the lesson, Linda comes out and tells me how good my daughter is doing, and she tells me a little about what the next lesson is. Even when I know my daughter hasn't put in the effort she could have, Linda is always supportive and encouraging. Sometimes people are just in the right place at the right time, and I feel we were very fortunate to find Linda when we did.

Piano · In home
My experience with Raginae includes a summer of having my 2 grandchildren study their first lessons with her and they loved her and her approach. Unfortunately, on their return home their teacher was not of the same high quality.

I am an older student with minimal coordination and have progressed far further than I ever dreamed possible as I started from scratch at age 72. One of the factors in my continued progress is that Raginae can always find something I have done which can be addressed in a constructive manner rather than a critical, withering manner. I have come to class at times thinking what is the use, I can never get anywhere with this and by the time I go home I will have a more positive outlook and clear goals within my abilities. Consequently, my next lesson will be rewarding.

As I have lived a very long time I also like to meander through all kinds of music and odd musical questions arise. Raginae deals with them seamlessly. I recommend her very highly.

I have been taking lessons with Raginae for about 9 years now. Without a doubt, she is the best piano teacher out there and I wouldn't have gotten to where I am now without her guidance. She is very competent and technical, but she leaves the music choice to you so you can progress in whatever genre you prefer. _
