Mrs. Slenk is one of the top teachers in the state of Michigan for classical music. Everyone memorizes; everyone learns theory; everyone is pushed (with kindness) to their limit and encouraged to be their best. She's been teaching for over 60 years, and she keeps learning, keeps growing, keeps producing better students each year. She has been a mentor to many other accomplished teachers as well. You will be hard pressed to find a better piano teacher in the Grand Rapids area than Marilyn Slenk.

Mrs. Marilyn Slenk is a fantastic piano teacher. She knows it all. Hand position, technic, musicianship, etc. Many of her students win awards and go on professionally. I myself won a 1/2 scholarship to Interlochen in middle school. If I would have practiced more, I would obviously be better today. I am proud to call her my mother.

Mrs. Slenk came highly recommended as a great teacher and one of the area's premier performers. I came to her in my late high school years, as a student who perhaps thought he knew better and slacked off a bit. She put me in shape immediately and had me playing high end Beethoven, Chopin, and Rachmaninoff right off the bat. If I was not prepared for a lesson, that lesson was cut short and I was sent home with more assignments. In short, she became the best teacher I ever had. I recommend her wholeheartedly, but only for those who are prepared to put in plenty of work to become better musicians!

Marilyn is a true maestro. I learned so much from her. She has given me a joy in playing that I never could have realized without her. My life has been greatly enriched.
