Mrs. Marina has taught me piano for 12 years, since I was 6 years old! Now I'm 18 and going on to study music performance in college.

Beyond just teaching me music history, theory, and performance etiquette, she has taught me how to appreciate and love music for what it is. I've had numerous music teachers and none of them have shown the same energy, vigor, and passion for music as Mrs. Marina has. Anybody can teach music, but Mrs. Marina teaches you how to love music.

Her many years of experience has given her fantastic insight on how to approach every issue you may have. She has solutions for every technical problem I have, knows which pieces to assign to each individual student, and properly prepares her students for any piano exams and competitions. I have completed the ABRSM Grade 8 Practical Exam and competed in the Golden Key Music Festival competition!

Last year, I attended Carnegie Mellon University's Pre-College Program for music, and it was only with Mrs. Marina's help and guidance that I had such a wonderful opportunity.

If you're thinking about starting piano lessons for yourself or for your kids, I say absolutely go for it. Mrs. Marina is so warm-hearted and caring, and is truly a one-in-a-million piano teacher. It would be a shame to miss such an amazing opportunity.
