Stephanie taught weekly piano lessons to my son in our home. Always punctual and on-task, I appreciated her consistency and professionalism. Feeling overwhelmed in other areas of his life, Stephanie was able to gauge just how much encouragement my son needed so that he could successfully reach his musical goals. Her approach was kind, patient and consistent. Her knowledge of music theory was spot-on. We really enjoyed working with her before we moved!Dec 18, 2014Stephanie Emery Piano Instruction's reply
Bonni I miss you guys, and hope you have found a great teacher in Portland. Please give Samuel a hug for me!!
Stephanie is very patient with children. She is also very fun and truly teaches them to love piano. Both of my children enjoyed lessons with Stephanie for many years until we moved.Nov 11, 2014Stephanie Emery Piano Instruction's reply
Thank you Patricia! I miss you guys!
Can't say enough positive things about Stephanie. Our daughter is nine and in her third year of piano instruction with Stephanie, who is always punctional and prepared. She has a kind, patient way of instructing while pushing her students to progress. She is a gifted musician herself and actively records and performs, but her priority is teaching piano and her passion for it shows. Her twice-yearly recitals are fun and festive. Our daughter has confidently grown as a musician under Stephanie and is developing an appreciation for all kinds of music as a result.Nov 13, 2014Stephanie Emery Piano Instruction's reply
Thank you Heather, I appreciate the kind words!
Stephanie has taught our son for five years, and in that time has become such a vitally important part of our lives. She helped him discover a genuine love for music, for the piano, and confidence in himself and his abilities. She has a remarkable balance of patience, enthusiasm, encouragement, and discipline that was just perfect for him. He loves piano, and practices for the sheer joy of it, but he also practices because he wants to earn her praise. Her twice-yearly recitals have been absolutely formative for him, helping him gain self-confidence, pride, and an ease with performing in front of others. He started with her when he was in kindergarten, and it has been a joy to watch him grow with her over the years. Can't recommend her highly enough. We love Stephanie!Jun 9, 2019Stephanie Emery Piano Instruction's reply
Thank you Suzanne! You guys have been such a great family to work with. D's growth at the piano has been spectacular, he's a joy to teach!
My daughter took lessons from Stephanie weekly, for three years. We moved to Stephanie after another instructor was a little too intense for her. Stephanie worked with her slowly at first to find a good rhythm for instruction and practice. She established a mutually agreeable plan for practice and a reward system that motivated her. My daughter blossomed. Stephanie was able to rekindle my daughter's love for the piano and guide her towards more challenging work, practice goals and recital pieces. I'm am not a musician so I'm not familiar with all the nuances of learning music, however, I can appreciate that Stephanie worked with her to understand theory, the time signature, reading the music for the appropriate emphasis and emotion and reinforced learning the notes on the staff with games and fun activities - my daughter flourished as a result of her instruction. We looked forward to the recitals twice a year when we could hear all of the students play. We are sad that Stephanie has left our area and would have happily stayed with her. Our new teacher has wonderful things to say about my daughter's play reinforcing what I already knew about Stephanie's instruction. Stephanie is a wonderfully skilled teacher with a kind and caring approach.Jul 9, 2019Stephanie Emery Piano Instruction's reply
Ann, thank you so much for this review. I loved working with both you and Georgia. Your presence in my studio each week was a bright spot for me. I miss you already and am so glad you are continuing piano, Georgia's got a real gift!
