I took piano lessons from Ms Garin for almost 11 years. Over that time, she not only taught me about music theory and piano techniques, but her guidance helped me learn about hard work, dedication, and atristry. She catered her lessons to me personally, exposing me to various styles of music, and making sure I was always interested in what I was learning or playing. As I progressed, she allowed me to explore options in songwriting and play some of my own compositions at her student recitals. Over the years, my mom and I both came to know Paulette as a very approachable and caring person with a passion for music and teaching. By now, I consider Paulette a close personal friend and cannot recommend her highly enough.
