Superb! Michele is patient, knowledgeable, and her passion for teaching piano is contagious!!Oct 16, 2019Verified
Dr. Cohen is amazing. She is in my opinion the best piano teacher out there. She is a highly accomplished pianist in her own right and she wants all of her students to be the absolute best....both technically and expressively that they can be. I’m so happy I decided to resume lessons with her.....and highly recommend her to anyone who is either getting back into piano or is a beginner.Feb 10, 2020VerifiedDr. Michele Cohen Paradise Valley Music Academy's reply
Thank you, Jeremy, for your amazing review! It gives me great satisfaction to see you progress towards achieving your musical goals!
Dr. Michele Cohen is an excellent teacher. I’m so relieved by having such a very dedicated and patient teacher as I know nothing about music and piano, and after a month I can now start to play some songs and even read music sheets that were totally impossible to understand before. Dr. Cohen is very professional and punctual. I’m very pleased and recommend Dr. Cohen if you are thinking about starting this beautiful journey into music learning.May 17, 2019VerifiedDr. Michele Cohen Paradise Valley Music Academy's reply
Thank you so much, Ricardo for your review! It has been wonderful to watch your progress!
I started with some music experience, but I never touched a piano. Michele is simply fantastic! I've learned some of my favorite music and feel proud of my work. She teaches great technique and has a strong professional background. I took up piano as a serious hobby, and I've enjoyed every lesson with Michele. Couldn't recommend more highly!Jul 28, 2019VerifiedDr. Michele Cohen Paradise Valley Music Academy's reply
Thank you so much, it has been a pleasure to work with you!
Michele is an excellent piano teacher. I chose her because from the start it was clear that she is passionate about music and the piano and sharing that joy. I am in my early thirties with little acquaintance with the piano prior to starting with Michele. Despite the difficulties of starting at a relatively old age, she has been very patient with me yet structured in her lessons, always with a clear path forward for me to progress in my skills. She is very easy to work with and I hope to continue to grow with her help for a long time to come. I recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to learn the piano and is looking for a professional and engaging teacher.Mar 14, 2018Verified
