I met Mrs Elena M at mommy and me Music classes when my daughter Elena Schuch was 2 years old, these classes taught young children to appreciate music, learn about famous classical music composers, and in a way that was fun for the children as they played with musical instruments, Elena M. told me my daughter would do well with Piano lessons, I did enroll her in Piano classes at the age of 6 and she continued with the classes until the age of 18, at which point she went of to College. Mrs Elena M. is a wonderful teacher, who challenged my daughter as she learned the language of Music, she was admitted to the Bak Middle School of the Arts in WPB as a result of these lessons, and actually won first prize in a competition on sight reading, studying Piano opened a door to my daughters development I would not have considered if it wasn't for Mrs Elena M. suggestion she take Piano lessons.I highly recommend Elena M. as a Piano teacher, not only does she have the breath of knowledge in her field and understands how children learn, she is also a consummate teacher, knowing how to encourage, and when to challenge her students, my daughter was lucky to have her as a teacher and I am grateful for Elena M. advice, and how her teaching expanded my daughters horizons.

Miss Elena’s school in Boca Raton was definitively the best music school in the area. We are so glad we found her, because thanks to this school our kids had an excellent music education. Our older son has been with Miss Elena since he was four, attending the music workshops classes, and he was Elena’s piano student for four years until she sold the school and moved to Sarasota. The methodology used, the dynamic of the lessons and the introduction of new pieces in every class, have kept him interested, motivated, and eager to learn. We highly recommend music classes with Miss Elena.

Our son started piano lessons with Elena at age 5 and continued until he was 10 years of age, at which point we moved out of state. She introduced our son to many different kinds of music. She was very diciplined and demanded excellence as reflected by her students performances and recitals .

Our son received a great background in music performance which was very much appreciated by the teachers that he has had subsequently during his junior and senior years. He is now in college and continues with music activities.

Elena is a great and demanding teacher, and she teaches in a manner well received by parents and students. We highly recommend her as an outstanding piano teacher.
