Student Reviews




Borger, TX

Mrs. Winkler has been the most friendly teacher I have ever had: she has been flexible, understanding, and encouraging in my pursuit of piano. I have never felt a stronger drive to both perfect and play the instrument as I have with Mrs. Winkler. There is no one I wouldn’t recommend her to.




Borger, TX

I was a little hesitant about online piano lessons, but Anna taught my son (an advanced student) just as good as in-person! In addition to her great teaching skills, she is kind and cares just as much about the student and their feelings as she does all other aspects of piano lessons. And she’s christian! I cannot recommend her enough!!




Statesville, NC

I have received online lessons from Miss Anna for three years now, and what a joy she is to study under! Miss Anna is not only extremely skilled when it comes to teaching music, she also is a huge encourager. I always come away from lessons inspired to keep learning, and feel equipped to do so. Highly recommend her as a piano teacher!




Jacksonville, IL

I have had Miss Anna for many years as I have learned to play piano. She has taught me not just piano, but she has helped me spiritually. We have many kind discussions. She has strengthened my music theory and history. She has improved my technique, especially in my places of weakness. She is truly an inspired musician who will help many others as well.




Willis, TX

Anna is an accomplished musician and excellent teacher!! I always learn so much from her, whether it be watching her perform or taking instruction from her in a private lesson. She provides EXCELLENT quality lessons and is also a delightful person to be around!




Springdale, AR

Anna is an outstanding teacher. I have grown so much musically under her instruction. The way she teaches is clear and easy to follow. She is an inspiration and a role model to me both in music and in life. I always look forward to our lessons, and I’m so grateful for the time and expertise she has invested into my musical journey.




Jacksonville, IL

I started piano lessons with Miss Anna after I retired a few years ago. I take virtual lessons from Anna. She is dedicated to help her students build effective practice habits, help with analyze music, and to make lessons enjoyable. She is down to earth, good Christian lady. I am so glad to get to know Anna. Anyone who takes lessons from her won’t be disappointed. .




Jacksonville, IL

My daughter Ruth was four years old when she began studying piano with Miss Anna. In short, a parent could not ask for a kinder, more knowledgeable, and more inspiring teacher than Anna. From the very beginning, Miss Anna instilled a foundation of both musical sense and personal integrity--as a pianist, but moreover as a human being--in my daughter. Whether my daughter's role as a musician expands and grows as a performer or blossoms as an ardent appreciator of music, I'm forever indebted to Anna's role in crafting and shaping my daughter's experience and character.




Jacksonville, IL

Ms. Ferraro has in an incredible talent to inspire and teach. With patience, determination and insight she has taught my 13 year old son for two years. He enjoys being challenged by Ms. Ferraro and her positive teaching approach inspires him to do his best.
