My daughter took piano lessons with Ruth. She connects with her immediately and likes her approach to piano playing. I'm happy to say that she progress tremendously. Now she can play all the songs that she can sing! That's so great!

Ruth is an amazing Piano teacher. She's very patient with my two young boys (ages 9 and 7). Her teaching methodology not only teaches my two boys to learn how to play the piano but also trains them to sing at the right key. Amazing results and I am extremely happy.

My purpose in taking lessons is to revive lost skills and to relearn proper technique, both of which Ruth O is an adept instructor.
