I have taken nearly three semesters of piano training in the past, but Michelle has helped me truly enjoy playing and practicing this instrument. The workload is very manageable and her patience is nearly infinite with me. She has made this experience the best it could possibly be for a slow learner. I would recommend her to anyone that is wanting to try out the piano.Nov 9, 2018Verified
Great lessons! Learning so much every lesson.Jun 25, 2018Verified
Michelle is just so charming to work with. Always upbeat and prepared for the next lesson. I hadn't taken piano lessons in years and she was able to asses my abilities and work from there. I would reccomend her to anyone that asked!Jan 8, 2017

Michelle is well organized, whichever helps me a lot because I have a pretty short attention span. Very knowledgeable and professional.Jun 8, 2017
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $20 an hour. Lessons can be 30, 45, or 60 minutes. Payment for the month is due on the first lesson of said month, calculated by how many weeks they plan to attend. If a lesson is missed and the student tells me at least a day in advance, we can either reschedule or roll the amount they already paid onto the next month. (Example: Susie has 30-minute lessons, so they cost $10 each. She plans on attending 4 lessons this month. She would typically pay $40, but we canceled one lesson last month in advance without rescheduling, so we take off $10 for a total of $30 for the month.) There are no extra fees for participation in recitals or festivals. A binder is provided for each student. The student is responsible for purchasing method books (if applicable) and sheet music.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free consultation or first lesson for new students, both for them to see if they like me as a teacher and for me to evaluate where the student is. Doing this enables us both to start on the same page when lessons begin.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm currently working on a Bachelor's in Piano Performance at Utah Valley University. I've taken classes in music theory, ear training, music history, piano pedagogy, educational psychology, and elementary music methods, all of which have contributed to my teaching.
