Testimonials

Out of my 10 years at piano, I have learned the most from Miss Cynthia.  Expressing myself through music has become easier than ever and I can now apply what I’ve learned outside of classes.”  - Jasmine, student 

“Cynthia is a great musical influence on my children.  It is evident to me that she thinks deeply about what her individual students need to succeed.  She has consistently shown flexibility and a willingness to meet my kids where they are.  For example, Cynthia works hard to make challenging songs accessible.  My daughter wanted to learn “He’s a Pirate” from a soundtrack and Cynthia made it possible for her as a beginning student.

I especially like Cynthia’s goal of making every student a well rounded musician.  She takes students through composition and improvisation early on - something not all piano teachers are able to do.  Thank you for your hard work!”  -Brenna, parent

“You make music so much fun for me because I like when we sing songs at the end of class! You are an amazing piano teacher because you make music fun and you do a really good job teaching me!”  - Riya, student
