    Both of my daughter's take piano lessons with Ms. Patti. They are 9 & 7 year old girls. They are very different and Ms. Patti teaches each one differently. She has identified their individual strengths and interests and motivates them in these areas. The weekly lessons, quarterly classes, and piano labs throughout the year are a few ways she keeps them challenged and engaged. She finds creative ways to motivate them to practice their piano on a daily bases and rewards their efforts. She encourages them to participant in music recitals and festivals that help them gain confidence and experience in performing. Ms. Patti is an amazing teacher. We are very pleased and our girls love her.

    My 13-year old daughter Anna has been going to Ms Patti's lessons for about 5 years. She was with somebody else and was spinning her wheels. Within about 6 months she was actually progressing nicely. She is a solid intermediate pianist, and has been able to acquit herself pretty well. At her last recital she played "River Flows in You" by Yaruma and that was pretty tough. Ms Patti challenges her and most of the time she meets the challenge and progresses forward. Ms Patti is not easy, but seems to know that each child has different motivations.

    My son has been learning piano in Noteworthy Piano Studio for three years and we found that Mrs. Nyien is a great piano teacher. We liked Mrs. Nyien's one-on-one lessons, her bi-monthly classes and her semi-annual recitals. She also actively gets her students to participate in all kinds of music festivals that help students gain confidence and experience in perfoming before an audience. I would recommend Mrs. Nyien to others.
