I am an adult and desired to learn to play the piano for as long as I can remember. I searched for a teacher for about a year before finding Priscilla. She is extremely experienced/talented, but more importantly, she knows HOW to teach. It's one thing to know how to play and another to be able to show someone else how to. She is patient and affable. She understands that I have minimal time to practice and doesn't make me feel bad about it. Since I am a novice, I tend to get nervous while practicing, but Priscilla never makes me feel embarrassed. Rather, she's encouraging and motivating. She has wonderful teaching resources, too. I can't imagine anyone, at any age or stage, not being able to improve in piano alongside a teacher like Priscilla. If you're in need of a teacher, look no further than Heffieldpiano.com; you won't regret it!
We appreciate your years of being a part of our family. Your diligent work with both of our daughters has been an instrumental part of who they are.
A great teacher makes a world of difference. I appreciate the encouragement and positive reinforcement. You manage to push just hard enough to keep the motivation going.
