When I first walked into the Coraopolis studio, to be honest, I thought it was a bit depressing. It's old and in need of a good updating. However the PEOPLE are FANTASTIC!
Emily put my daughter at ease immediately. Our first consultation lasted well over an hour. My daughter was given lots of information about the program and about Joe.
She's not a particularly shy girl, but she's not immediately outgoing in new situations. Emily and Joe were sensitive to her personality and within a few short weeks, there is plenty of comfortable banter.
Emily is new to teaching, but her compassion, enthusiasm, encouragement, kindness and love of music are all very motivating.
I believe that music and the arts are very personal experiences. Artists must be able to put themselves forward. Each artist is a unique personality. Each singer has a voice that is all their own. I believe that Joe and Emily are going to help my daughter find hers. We both are eager for the lesson each week. These two are real gems in our little community.
