I am really really choosy about who I let my children around. Laney is such a fantastic human being with a good, pure heart. Shes great with children. She is smart and eloquent, friendly, kind as well as compassionate. The curriculums she uses work well. She chooses based on what she thinks will work best with your child. For mine, she was spot on. The lessons are fun. She has the children do multiple activities so they arent just sitting still doing drill and kill the entire time. Sometimes my childs homework has a teacher part. So whatever he learns he comes back and plays with Laney playing another part like a duet. Its so beautiful, I want to cry. It really rewards his practice. Laney has good intuition regarding children as well. In the beginning, my son was really nervous and would forget even what a simple letter from the alphabet looked like. If she had said something sarcastic or questioned him, he would have shut down and it would have been hard for him to learn. But she didnt do that at all. She just told him what it was and kept moving. What a relief. We have moved a lot. I rely on reviews a lot for service providers so I tried to include info that was important to me for you. Laney is a great pianist, teacher and a good person.May 23, 2019Review from Google

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Tuition is charged monthly at a fixed price every month to make it easier for both the student and teacher. Payment can be made online through my platform.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My decade and a half of piano instruction includes working as a choir accompanist and studying at the university level under Dr. Yu-Wen Chen of James Madison University. During my teen years I focused on pieces by classical composers, especially those by Chopin and Debussy, as well as Broadway masterpieces. In recent years I have enjoyed delving into jazz and modern pieces as well. I am a member of the National Music Teacher's Association and involved at the state and regional levels as well.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?After I graduated college, I began teaching piano for embassy families while living abroad. I loved teaching students of many ages and cultural backgrounds.
