Best piano teach for young students! Jenny is so great with my 10 year old and has gotten her through hurdles with learning and makes it fun an interesting to practice piano! Can't recommend Jenny enough for any student of any age!

Jenny is approachable and knowledgable. She meets students at their level, and works with them to improve them. My child has been taking lessons from Jenny for over a year, and has improved greatly. I highly recommend Jenny!

Jenny is a great teacher! Very patient with all age levels. I am an older student coming back to the piano after many years and Jenny has motivated me to learn to read music again and to learn songs that I never thought possible.
