· Piano · In home Michelle does a great job with my 6 year old son. He has been getting weekly lessons for over a year now, and is making a lot of progress. He also enjoys the lessons enough to look forward to them. I was worried he would lose interest, but so far that is not the case. Michelle makes it fun and provides small rewards and lots of encouragement. I wanted to expose my son to the experience and enjoyment that comes with learning to play music, and Michelle has made that possible.

· Piano · Michelle is great with youth

Michelle has been a great addition to our 8 year olds activities. He is interested and picking up piano faster than expected. Michelle has made the experience fun and interesting..which is all we could ask for.
