I haven't found any teacher as easy to work with or as enjoyable to talk to before we started lessons with Alicia. She is also the most reasonable in price. Most others we have found have all been at least 25-30 dollars for a 30 minute lesson!
We met Alicia and after the first lesson our 7 year old daughter was hooked. She couldn't wait to come back. Alicia makes each lesson fun, and finds ways to encourage and make practicing a challenge but enjoyable with rewarded outcomes. She also had children our daughter's age which made it fun for her to come back to lessons. We got a piano teacher and a new friend for our daughter!
