    It was only a first lesson and getting to know each other. Which is what I expected. expect to get to work in the next lesson.

    Yana Giles has been the best piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from out of all 5 teachers I've had. She is patient, encouraging and motivational through every piece she assigns me. My appreciation for music grew an enormous amount after beginning lessons with her. My hand technique improved, as well as performance ability. I recommend her to anyone looking to learn the piano! Even if you have already learned the piano and wish to improve somehow, Yana will show you a new understanding of music that you never thought you could have.

    Great teacher

    My teacher is very knowledgeable, yet she is able to teach beginner music. She has not only taught me to read notes, she has told me a lot of history about the instrument and lots of music. I think she is the very best!!!!

    Yana is a wonderful teacher

    I was a bit hesitant of enrolling my daughter in lessons because of the expense not only for the lessons but I knew piano lessons meant a piano or keyboard would also need to be purchased. Yana is so great with her, she has given her a love and better understanding of music. Yana is very patient and a great teacher, she understands my daughter very well and challenges her without crushing her spirits. I highly recommend her, this has been worth every penny!
