*** Lesson Details ***
Students are required to practice daily and Ms. Dunham encourages students to track their practice in age appropriate ways. With incentives for practice, there is constant motivation from day one to succeed.

Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons but Ms. Dunham asks that you be sensitive to the difference in your child’s behavior in and out of your presence. Children will often be more at ease without the watching and caring, eye of a parent. However, parents are not discouraged from attending with their child.

Recital participation is mandatory as it is an important factor in your child’s education. Please be supportive of your child’s pending performance even if they are timid; if there are concerns please bring them up with Ms. Dunham.

Great Teacher!!

My 10 year old Son, has been taking lessons from Jessa for about 6 weeks now - he has learnt in leaps and bounds from Jessa. She is very patient, kind and very precise in explaining to my son, she is very clear and has a great way with children. I have appreciated her professionalism, and especially helping him believe in himself and build his self confidence. This has been a very positive experience in many ways. I highly recommend Jessa as a piano teacher - we love her!!!
