Davis Piano Studio
Imogen taught my daughter through advanced repertoire and now I am an adult student in my 4th year of lessons with Imogen. She is an incredible teacher who amazes me with her ability to take a student from playing notes to performing with great musicality! She is patient and respectful of different learning styles and able to motivate students with diverse backgrounds, goals and personalities. Of course, Imogen is an accomplished musician herself and it is always a delight to hear her in concert.Sep 26, 2014
Imogen has calm energy as a teacher. She's engaging so that my daughter (she's six) listens and understands what's expected. Imogen's creative about ways to motivate my daughter at lessons and at home to make practice fun. She looks at where my daughter is and gives her enough to challenge her but not to make her frustrated, so my daughter feels good about what she's learning. Imogen's also an amazing pianist.Sep 23, 2014

Q & A
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?It really makes a difference who your teacher is and what their qualifications are. This is a profession that anyone can claim to have (there isn't any licensing or training required to claim that you can teach, or to join the Music Teachers Association). You need a teacher who can really get you started with the right physical approach to the piano. Like other precision athletic activities (think golf or tennis for example) it is much easier to get started with good form and technique, than it is to fix it later. Bad habits are very easy to get into and can plague one's playing forever, or simply cause students to quit, because they aren't getting the results they want, it is tedious to learn new music, the music they really want to play is beyond their capabilities. I have the qualifications and knowledge to get students started right.
