Student Reviews




Cary, NC

"The piano is one of the hardest instruments to play, but with a teacher like Mrs. Lisa, it becomes the easiest and the most enjoyable. Mrs. Lisa opens up your eyes to a world of new music by instructing you with praise, nitty-gritty feedback, and fun, creative ways to learn challenging music. Being her student for 8 2/3 years has taught me a lot and has helped me achieve more than I could have imagined. She’ll help you prepare for exciting new contests and competitions. Aside from her experience with piano, Mrs. Lisa is a kind, hard-working, and compassionate person who cares about all. With the guidance of a teacher like Mrs. Lisa, you can do wonders, musically and personally!"




Skype Lessons, WA

"Lisa has been the only piano teacher our son Gideon has ever had and she has skillfully taken him from the earliest Faber books to Beethoven's Sonatas. We have been with her for eight years, three studios, numerous recitals and Guild Auditions. Now, with her move to Seattle, we are using some modern technology to create a "virtual studio" across more than 2500 miles. We are very thankful that Gideon will continue to learn and collaborate with someone like Lisa who has such an obvious love for music and more importantly genuinely cares about her students." --Jim Chickos
