Michelle is a great piano teacher, she taught 3 of my kids. Michelle always took the time to make sure each lesson was fun and interesting.
I would highly recommend Michelle as your next music instructor.

Michelle is very patient and she has the perfect temperament to teach children. We have known Michelle for many years. She is currently teaching my 5 year old daughter. When we decided to have our five year old lessons, we were very pleased Michelle was available to instruct her. Michelle has taught our other two daughters. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone!
