I took a few lessons with Sonya in Piano didactics. She really knows her craft, besides being a wonderful and welcoming person. I wholeheartedly recommend working with her, you'll learn a lot while simply spending a great time.Sep 9, 2019
Sonya is a fantastic human and teacher! She always brought a wonderful energy and enthusiastic spirit to our lessons. I'm in my mid-twenties and an intermediate student. I have gone through different teachers throughout the years. She was able to offer really valuable insight to issues I've never been able to overcome in the past. She always remembered week to week what we had covered previously, and I felt like she really was invested in my progression. I highly recommend taking lessons from her!!Sep 5, 2019
Sonya is a wonderfully patient teacher. I had a few years of intense classical piano lessons as a kid, and finally decided to pick it up again at my own pace. She introduced me to lots of fun repertoire and a regular practice routine. Most importantly, Sonya made learning piano fun!Sep 5, 2019
Sonya is such an excellent teacher. She was great for me coming in with many years of experience and lots of bad habits, to take me back to basics and build a strong foundation. She was flexible with my college schedule and was just so excited to work on whatever music I was passionate about. I cannot recommend her enough!!Jun 16, 2019
Sonya gave my son a strong foundation in music/piano. She emphasizes technique and skill during her lessons. She adapted her lessons to my son's needs and interests. He enjoys math and puzzles so she found workbooks with puzzles. He showed interest in composing so she worked with him for several lessons to compose an original piece of music that he was able to perform at the spring recital.Jun 20, 2019
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Depending on your location, I ask for a a travel fee, in addition to my listed pricing. I treat our first two lesson as introductory lessons. After the first two lessons, I ask for the month of tuition for lessons on the first lesson of each month. This ensures accountability and regularity both from the student and the teacher!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to get to know my students and see what their interests are, level of experience, and what they hope to gain from lessons. Based in this information, I customize lesson plans and materials to fit the needs and interests of each student.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?B.M. Piano Performance, University of Michigan
