Excellent teacher, good at gauging skill level and choosing the appropriate pieces. Danni makes the most of lesson time and every minute is used. She also paces things well and quickly enough to help you reach your potential.

I've been under Danni's guidance for a little while now and it's been amazing in every way possible. She's very professional at what she does, very knowledgable in her field of studies and very intelligent. She's able to pin point my mistakes with great accuracy, come up with a solution that's easy to approach and correct me on the very spot. Playing the piano was never this fun before taking her classes. I'd recommend Danni to everyone who's looking for a great piano teacher.
