Ms Dora is an excellent teacher and you can see how she loves music and singing. She has such patience for the students and works hard through the evenings to study how to help every student achieve all that they can be. Ms Dora will help a student either sing a song you love to their best and play the piano to a song you have wanted to play for a long time. She taught my granddaughter both piano and singing lessons until my granddaughter moved away. I recommend for anyone wanting lessons to do it now before she gets booked.

Dora is an amazing teacher. My daughter started lessons with her six months ago and she has advanced a great deal and she loves playing the piano. Dora makes piano lessons enjoyable and exciting. My daughter looks forward to playing the piano at Dora's home and at our home. Dora is also very nice pleasant person and I truly enjoy interacting with her.

She inspires me to want to learn and to enjoy music. I started four months ago and I already play Tchaikovsky's Old French Song. I like my teacher a lot!

Dora is an amazing teacher. She motivates the student to become a better, in this case, vocalist. I am sure if I took piano lessons, she would have motivated me to continue to practice. I highly recommend Dora to beginners through advanced artists. If you're looking for a teacher, look no further!

Dora is the most wonderful teacher. She has such a natural way of connecting to my kids and their individual needs. My children really respond to her direction and guidance. I would recommend Dora to anyone looking for quality piano or voice lessons. Many of my friends take lessons from Dora as well and they all say the same! She has become part of our friend circle. We love Dora!!

Dora is an incredible teacher. She is patient, kind, understanding and talented. My daughter is in 1st grade and Dora teaches the lesson at an age appropriate way. My daughter looks forward to going to Dora's house for lessons. My daughter has made progress every week. I highly recommend sending your child to Dora for lessons.

Dora is an amazing music teacher. She worked with both of my kids giving them piano and voice lessons. Dora has a hands-on teaching style and integrates fun, a love of learning with music theory. She is very patient and provides developmentally appropriate exercises to practice. All of her lessons are exciting and productive. Both of my children look forward to not only taking lessons but coming home to practice! Dora has a way of motivating her students to make them want to work hard and get better. We are very lucky and grateful to have her as a music teacher. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to improve in their musical journey!

Dora has been teaching my daughter classical piano as well as voice lessons for 3 years. She is incredibly talented, and very patient. I have seen great progress in my daughter's abilities as a musician as well as boost her confidence. Dora m works with the student's pace, allowing more time to focus on personal growth. My daughter looks forward to her lessons with Dora and taking her talent's to the High School level. Dora is a serious, very dedicated teacher that blends a little of "MOM" into her mix, making her lessons fun and educational. She is just awesome!

Dora is a wonderful teacher, very positive and has a great dialog with kids and their families. My 6 year old enjoys her piano lessons a lot. I highly recommend Dora to any parent that wants to introduce piano or continue with their studies in music.
