My son Steven has been taking taking lessons with Carol for about 2 years now and we think she is the greatest! Carol was very knowledgeable during the lessons and her patience with my son helped him achieve greatness. My son is now moving and we wish he could take Carol with him but shes got great work to do with other students! I HIGHLY recommend lessons with Carol!

Adam has been great with my 7 year old son. He is patient and just firm enough to get his message across and still able to laugh at a 7 year olds antics! I definitely recommend him if you want to start you son or daughter in music or with an instrument.

This was our first lesson and first impression is that he was very patient with our boys. Our boys have some special needs and he was understanding and accommodating. It's clear he is very knowledgable about the instrument. Time will tell if his teaching style and personality will work for us in the long run.

I played clarinet for ten years. I wanted to find a teacher who really knows how to focus on a student's goals and weaknesses. Kevin has provided me with weekly lessons that I can take home and make trues progress in picking, timing, reading, fingering, and listening, Kevin is a true professional.

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.
