I have taken my children, 10 and 15, to many studios for their music lessons. Both of them started around 7 years old. Over the years, I have seen many types of teachers or teaching methods. Ms. Ettelson, among all, in my opinion, is the only one with a balanced approach of classical, Suzuki, theory, and individual-specific method. Sitting in her classes with my child makes me feel that I should pay for the lessons as well, in addition to paying for my child, because it is very inspiring when she naturally conveys critical concepts and demonstrates techniques to overcome difficult parts. There is just so much more packed into any one lesson of hers. If you like music, you will love her piano lessons. If you love music, like me, you will appreciate the inspiration from this performing artist.
