I have been taking piano lessons from Celine and not only is she gifted, but she is encouraging and makes me at ease. Because of her teaching style I see myself achieving my dreams and she will help you get there! I totally recommend her to people who not only want to learn classical piano but also voice too!

They were not only able to learn from her, but they really enjoyed her as a teacher, as well... I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

Celine teaches my 12 year old son and she’s the 3rd teacher we’ve had. We are very picky with piano teachers and Celine is by far the best teacher we have had. She doesn’t waste time and gets right to the lesson immediately. She is extremely knowledgeable and capable at playing and teaching piano. She’s the only teacher who took the time to correct my son’s hand positioning on the keyboard. She’s been very flexible with our schedule as well. I would recommend Celine to anyone who wants to learn piano at any level.

She has been working with my kids for several years, it has been a wonderful experience. Her approach, which incorporates technique, theory and performance, are giving my kids a well rounded experience. Most importantly, my kids are having fun and is eager to play. Celine is highly recommended!

This review is for the teacher's communication and lesson scheduling only.

Lessons were scheduled and agreed upon, but teacher decided to cancelled last minute. We are disappointed at how it was handled.

We can not comment on the teacher's capabilities or reaching style.
