Learned a lot

Teresa is a teriffic teacher and takes a lot of pride in her work. She took her time with me and introduced me to a new way of delivery and breathing that helped with my speed and articulation. Teresa introduced new items to each lesson that made it a constant learning experience. Teresa is not only patient, but pleasant and I will be continuing my lessons with her this summer for my "tune up".

Rhonda F.

Rochester, NY

About Rhonda

I started taking piano lessons in the first grade from a teacher who graduated from Eastman School of Music. I later won a scholarship to Eastman School of Music as a classical pianist. I have been teaching for 33 years and have performed in Europe and won First Place Piano Competition in New York with 200 of the best pianists in the nation performing. I wanted to quit in the 5th grade but my mother told me I was to young to make that decision for myself and she would not hear of it! Music is now like the air that I breathe. I cannot live without it! Thanks mom for being smarter than me. Playing the piano should be fun at any cost. I let students play many styles of music until they find the style that calls them. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are and should be a fun experience. I ...

Fabulous Piano Teacher

I took lessons for 5 years and I play better than I ever dreamed. I enjoyed the lessons and understood the teaching with ease. Expect to have great lessons with your head spinning with tons of information after each lesson from this gifted teacher. Very enjoyable and rewarding experience to say the least. I never again found such a great teacher since taking with Rhonda. I was heartbroken when she moved.

Alex M.

Rochester, NY

About Alex

At 23 years of age, I feel I have come a long way with my passion for music. From southern Louisiana, I began my involvement in music by taking piano lessons at the age of 5. I began trumpet studies in my school bands starting at the age of 10. I have won numerous music awards and am pursuing a career in orchestral trumpet performance. I love sharing my knowledge with students and inspiring them to become better musicians. I have given trumpet lessons and clinics at various K-12 schools around Louisiana while studying music education at Loyola University New Orleans. I recently moved to Rochester, NY, to pursue my degree of Master of Music Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music, studying under James Thompson.
