Stephanie Emery Piano Education
It is hard to know where to start! Stephanie taught my daughter piano for 6 years from age 12 - 18. She is extremely insightful and came to understand my daughter quickly, then skillfully challenged her at exactly the right level through the years. Music came to be a great way of self expression for our daughter and also a way to relieve the kind of stress that sometimes visits during adolescence. Stephanie managed to walk the line of commitment to high standards and understanding that life is busy in the teen years. She has been, without a doubt, an important part of our daughter's development as a musician and as a person. We are forever grateful to have had her in our lives. (I also took lessons from Stephanie - she is also very patient :) . It is bittersweet that I write this in the past tense - our daughter is going off to college halfway across the country! She would definitely be continuing piano lessons with Stephanie if she were to stay in Seattle. We highly recommend her to any other families seeking a piano teacher for their child. We would also happily answer any questions from any families considering Stephanie as a piano teacher.Jun 5, 2017
Stephanie taught weekly piano lessons to my son in our home. Always punctual and on-task, I appreciated her consistency and professionalism. Feeling overwhelmed in other areas of his life, Stephanie was able to gauge just how much encouragement my son needed so that he could successfully reach his musical goals. Her approach was kind, patient and consistent. Her knowledge of music theory was spot-on. We really enjoyed working with her before we moved!Dec 18, 2014Stephanie E.'s reply
