Thoughts from Students, Parents, and Colleagues


Karen King

  • My daughter’s piano teacher excels at offering a balanced musical education. Each lesson includes the basics of theory, technique and performance, but more importantly my daughter is developing a love of music inspired by her teacher’s diligence in exposing her to a wide variety of musical styles and composers.”

            W. Lundsten (parent)

  • I have appreciated your enthusiasm and dedication to piano and to teaching. We admire your teaching ability, the patience you show your students and your endless excitement at their learning and performing.

  • “As an adult student, I find the structure of lessons with an RMT maximizes the amount of information I absorb while studying piano. Learning the science behind the theory has enhanced my appreciation of music as a whole.
