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.

Michelle is very knowledgable and passionate about music. She has a way of explaining that makes confusing concepts easy to understand. Great teacher.

Michelle is an amazing teacher! I enjoy how well Michelle works with my kids and it makes things easier that she is flexible with our busy schedule. My kids enjoy taking the lessons with Michelle and I could not ask for anything better!

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.
