Great teacher. Warm and fun.

My 14 year old daughter loves music lessons from Ophelia. I can say this is the first time my daughter has ever expressed this much interest in music. I was glad I was able to find Ophelia through another friend of mine whose daughter also learns from Ophelia. Whenever Ophelia teaches a new piece of music, she goes over the composer's history with her, teaches the theory behind the piece, and does a ton of musicianship training. The lessons are truly worth their cost. It makes my daughter learn so much, just as if she was going to school. I've got to say, Ophelia is worth her price tag. Anywhere else with this kind of private music training would probably go for at least $100 per 45 minute or more.
Alice L.
Ophelia is truly wonderful for helping my daughter pick up piano again. She is 15 years old and there's a lot of distractions that kept her from practicing piano. Ophelia was able to help her find interest in it again. Her teaching style is truly unique. After my daughter took her lessons she gradually became a better and happier musician and not just play off the books. Ophelia teaches music theory, singing and more to really help benefit my daughter overall! I will definitely be recommending her to my daughter's classmates!

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. I specialize in classical and pop. I love teaching babies and young children but I teach all ages. Piano is the hardest instrument. I try to make every lesson fun while still providing structure and a little bit of strictness. I use the Mark Nevin, Schaum, and Little Mozart series. I have tons of music to share for students that need to branch out and don't know what to play. Piano is my passion. I love sharing my love for this instrument with others.

"Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!"

She tailors the lesson to their ability and finds fun ways to teach note-reading, rhythm and music theory. Already my kids have jumped in their music skills. I couldn't recommend her more highly."

"Josh has been teaching our two kids piano, mixture of classical and popular, for about four years now. At this point one of our kids is 13 and the other 11. He's a wonderful, inspiring, enthusiastic and all round excellent piano teacher. Our kids are very different, and the younger one, our daughter, is slower to catch on. Josh is incredibly patient, and keeps her engaged. In the case of our son, he mixes classical with popular, and picks up on songs my son enjoys, to keep the lessons interesting. Josh typically would come to our home to teach two back-to-back lessons. More recently he has gone remote/online. In either setting he's just spectacular. We recommend him highly . . . and have recommended him to friends all of whom feel similarly about him as we do. He's also a really nice guy, and a pleasure to have in the house. He's also helped us with entertainment at a family function. Get in touch with Josh, you won't be sorry."
