Hi! My name is Raevyn and I am a student at the University of Utah studying piano performance under Jeffrey Price. This is my seventh year of teaching piano and I have been taking piano lessons now for fifteen years. I have fallen more in love with teaching the art of piano as my experience grows and this has led me to take part in an internship at Washington Elementary in the SLC area in 2015 as well as I currently teach private lessons alongside the piano preparatory division at the University of Utah. As my experience and knowledge grows, so does my love of teaching and sharing piano as an art form with my amazing students.

This was our first attempt for my 6yr old little girl. Things seem fine, she seemed to enjoy it I've no complaints but reserved a star for improvement because it's difficult to judge progress from a single lesson
