· Piano · In studio My 6 year old is a challenging cookie with 2 years of singing experience.
She LOVES learning both singing and piano playing with Dora! Dora has mastered flexibility and patience, and is excellent at keeping a young child on task. Heck, I started taking piano lessons myself! Dora, you are a gift to our city!!!

· Piano · In studio Dora is a wonderful teacher! My six-year-old daughter has been taking lessons with her for a few months and I am amazed at her progress. Dora is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher and my daughter cannot wait to go to lessons each week. In a few months Dora has taught her to read music and my daughter can play music that she knows, which is encouraging her even more. The home where Dora holds lessons is clean and bright and a good teaching environment. I have complete confidence in Dora and I recommend her very highly.

· Piano · In studio Dora is an incredible teacher. She has taught me voice and piano for seven years. She brought me to an intermediate level in piano, and she gave me special exercises, appropriate for my voice and age, to help improve my singing. She has a fun and unique way of teaching her students, and she is a very dedicated teacher. She is nice with kids, warmhearted, and very talented. I always look forward to seeing Dora. She is an amazing teacher and a great person! I highly recommend her for anyone out there who needs a piano and/or voice teacher. She is just awesome!

· Piano · In studio Dora is one of the most talented, passionate and kindhearted teachers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only is she absolutely wonderful with children, she teaches them in a way that they learn effectively. Anybody who is able to book an appointment with Dora will be lucky.

· Piano · In studio My six-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons from Dora for about a year and I am amazed at how much my daughter has learned and how Dora has been able to capture a young child's interest and passion for music. My daughter always looks forward to going to piano class, which I think is pretty amazing. Dora is great!

· Piano · In studio 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.

· Singing · In studio 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!
