They were very fast in responding and very close to my house. Also Marguerite was very attentive to my learning needsJul 21, 2017VerifiedMarguerite K.'s reply
We are especially enjoying Mark, since he is such an advanced student! He just needs to learn to let loose and spit out what he knows in a smooth easy way! He will be close to a native speaker before long!
Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.Jul 19, 2017VerifiedMarguerite K.'s reply
Bethany's daughter loves to perform and to compose. She does not realize it yet, but she will be a wonderful singer, also! She is very sensitive follow all the instructions week to week. I am so proud of her.
