Emily is a an extraordinarily gifted teacher. My daughter started lessons with her as soon as she turned 4 years old and just 8 months later she knows how to sight read music and understands basic concepts of music theory. Emily goes above and beyond in her teaching and is always coming up with creative ways that align with my daughter's personal interests to make learning piano as fun and engaging as possible. I recommend her as a piano teacher for young children and recommend her enthusiastically!
My son took piano lessons with Emily after school for over a year. During this time, she demonstrated to me what a wonderful teacher she is. Not only did she help him to progress as a piano player, she imparted her enthusiasm and love of playing the piano onto my son. Emily is friendly, patient, and she was able to gauge my son's abilities and customize his lessons according to his strengths. I respect Emily for her qualities as a piano teacher, and I highly recommend her!
I have been very pleased with how organized and professional our experience with Emily has been, I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. She is a very accomplished piano player herself and she translates those talents beautifully into teaching others. One thing I have been very impressed by is Emily's use of a personal binder for my daughters to record practice logs and she also includes a detailed plan written by her of what they are to be practicing and focusing on that week. I love how she includes encouraging recommendations on how to improve that help my girls to continue to work hard and get better, in addition to positive notes and achievements in the areas that they have improved and are doing well.
