“My son started taking music lessons from Michelle when he was 3 and when he was in grade one he started piano. I have always found Michelle to be an engaging and knowledgeable teacher. She really involves the students in choosing the music they like to play as well as introducing them to new music. She teaches her students an appreciation for classical music and composers. Michelle has great skills as a piano teacher and is able to adapt from small 3 year olds all the way up to adults. She challenges Matt to always do his best. None of what I have written here does Michelle justice, she isn’t just “the piano teacher” but a family friend.”
Michelle and the MYC program are both home runs! Michelle has a wonderful “way” with elementary kids – it takes real talent to keep small kids engaged when they have just finished school, are hungry (of course) and simply want to go outside and play. But she does it with ease… and the results are impressive. The learning techniques are simple yet effective and we really appreciate Michelle’s extra efforts in planning recital activities. It is great to see young children perform with such confidence and excitement for music!
“I am thankful that Michelle managed to put together a new MYC My Choice class when my son was 10 years old. He loves to learn the piano from her. He is now in private piano lessons and continues to enjoy it very much. Michelle is so knowledgeable, so energetic, and so enthusiastic. Looking at her smiling face, you would never guess that she teaches as many as 45 students per week. Thank you, Michelle!”
“We love MYC and Michelle! Caleb is in the MYC classes and Brianna takes private lessons from Michelle. Check it out.”
“Thank you, Michelle, for your always inspiring teaching!”
“My 9 year old daughter is loving music and piano lessons again. She had decided to quit piano altogether, but agreed to switch teachers as a last attempt. We started with Michelle and she now looks forward to lessons and motivates herself to practice. I am so pleased with the result changing teachers has had. I highly recommend Michelle as a piano teacher.”
