Piano Lessons (for adults)
Valerie is not only an amazing pianist but her dedication to her students is invaluable! My daughter has some intellectual disabilities and Valerie takes her time with her which has afforded great success for my daughter! She loves her lesson and is practicing. It's something she looks forward to each week! I highly recommend her!!Sep 22, 2017Verified
I took piano lessons from Val. She is amazing. I was an adult beginner. She does not teach a rote methodology. She determines your strengths and weaknesses and creates individualized instruction. I stopped taking lessons from her because she moved out of the area. I am very excited that she has moved back and I will be taking lessons from her again.Mar 19, 2016

Valerie has students of all ages(I am a senior citizen) and she can motivate us all.I highly recommend her.Mar 20, 2016
Valerie Siciliano is the best piano teacher I ever head. My daughters and I studied with her for many years before she relocated. She is a consummate professional, a gifted musician and teacher and a thoughtful, compassionate creative artist. She taught to my strengths and encouraged me as I developed my weaknesses. Listening to her play and teach are some of my fondest memories, and I still miss our weekly exploration of the keyboard and the technique and inner life necessary to play it. Additionally, her students enjoy opportunities to play and share their music with one another which heightens the entire experience.Mar 22, 2016
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually start with a brief phone interview to evaluate the needs of the student and what I can offer them. If I feel that the student might be a good fit with my teaching style and is serious. I will offer a a short introductory lesson.
