While shopping for qualified piano teachers that have successful experience teaching toddler ages children, I luckily came across Miss Sara Hammond on Nextdoor.com. i would most definitely recommend her to all of my friends and family or anyone searching for piano instruction.
From our first conversation, I knew she was an excellent fit and that she would be my four year old daughter's piano instructor. From her upbeat, friendly, helpful, and personable attitude; to her seasoned demeanor, extending patience and understanding with answering all of my questions and concerns...she assisted in our decision making process without missing a beat. She was very responsive, attentive, and never seemed bothered by the vast amount of concerns I had prior to starting lessons. She listened to everything we expected, and needed, then she eliminated our financial concerns by tailoring a beneficial lesson plan that also fit into our budget.
I sincerely appreciate her very caring, yet candid and honest, wealth of information. She made sure I was educated about and understood the importance of a decent starter keyboard, as well as, helped me narrow down options within our budget. She went as far as to research equipment in my area and send me several different links to review. Her genuine helpfulness, knowledge overall, and reassurance without pressure was comforting throughout our decision making process. I truly appreciate her great expertise and feel lucky, as well as, look forward to the opportunity for this new and positive musical education endeavor we are about to embark on, with her as my daughter's piano teacher.
