Please, right from Day 1, I can see that she is a woman who knows what she is doing, and with humility, teaches it to others. I am so glad to have met her.

Best piano instructor I've had. Very kind, and friendly environment in her home when I took lessons. It was a great experience learning from her!

Edna is a seasoned professional with proven experience in developing a wide range of students at varying skill levels. Her passion for music and teaching is evident, and she goes 'the extra mile' to creatively tailor her approach to each student's goals, needs, and musical preferences. She also incorporates music theory, history, and a variety of performance opportunities into her studio options. My sons have greatly enjoyed musical activities with Edna, and as a music teacher myself (now out-of-state), I highly recommend her.
