Mary Claire has been a great help in getting me back to playing the piano after a hiatus of 50 years. She is very patient and always comes up with ways to make learning fun and challenging. She sources pieces that will challenge me and has gently brought in theory that I never learned when I was a child.
Gerald F. Miller
I have been taking lessons with Mary Claire for the past three years in her studio. She is absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable and an extremely good pianist and teacher. I am an adult beginner and has taught me so much. She is very patient with my music and has always given constructive input. She frames things in creative and easy to understand ways. I highly recommend.

As a student at Berklee College of Music, I have a very thorough knowledge of music theory and as a teacher, I think it's important for students to understand how and why music is written. From reading music to figuring out scales and modes to harmonic analysis and the circle of fifths, I will focus on whatever my students' interests and goals are.

Nicole was a wonderful online instructor. My daughter (9 y.o.) learned so much - chords, how to read notes, rhythms and songs. Nicole also helped her prepare for a virtual talent show. Nicole went above and beyond what we expected and we have really enjoyed lessons with her.

Nicole is fantastic with our 5-year old. She has been our piano teacher since March and we could not be happier. She is articulate and has patience with our kid and I am sure she will be great with any kid any age. Get Nicole to help your child become an amazing piano player.

"Allison taught my son from the ages of 6-12 and my daughter from the ages of 5-8. She was great with the kids--always patient and friendly--and they both were very attached to her. As well, she taught them both how to play piano and music theory, which I thought was great. While she followed a set of piano books, she also was always willing to find them sheet music versions of songs they liked at a level they could play, which really helped to keep their interest high. Allison is a terrific teacher and both my children loved learning with her."
