Both of my daughters take lessons from Sonya. Previously we were at an academy in Cedar Mill and much of the love of music was being lost in an overly structured environment. Now that my girls are with Sonya, they are playing the piano for fun again and their confidence is building. Sonya is a fantastic teacher that keeps it light with the kids and has a natural ability to encourage and make people feel comfortable so they can perform to their greatest potential.

Omg!!! She is a great teacher, I have been learning piano with her for 5 years, and she is the nicest teacher ever. She gives feedback, for what she liked, and what you can improve on. She has made me learn that with lots of time great things can happen, and to shoot for the stars. Everyday she will ask "How are you" and I would say what happened in school like she was my mom, and she would nod patiently. I Think she is the best teacher ever. If you are looking for a Piano teacher she should certainly be one of the options. THANKYOU SONYA!!!!

My son just had his first lesson with Sonya and he loved it! Sonya did an excellent job with him by keeping him motivated and excited to learn. She made sure to move on when he was ready.
