We have really enjoyed having you as Brookelyn's piano teacher. We feel she has progressed so well under your guidance and we plan to keep it up once we are settled in Canada. Thank you for your expert teaching and caring. Brookelyn has been a very lucky girl to have had you as her piano teacher.
We really enjoyed the recital. The children are so talented and you are an excellent teacher. I love to see the progress from one recital to the next.
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the recital on Sunday. It was so inspiring to see so much talent!! You've done a great job with your students.
Please know you really made me another type of piano player, one that expresses rather than is technical.
During the audition, the main piano instructor said I had good technique and a nice touch, and he could tell that I had been trained well. So, I just wanted to thank you so much for the wonderful piano training you gave me.
