    I have Muscular Dystrophy and Tarlov Cyst Disease, but you’d never know it. Dancing keeps me fit, active, and mentally strong. Sean is skilled working with medical challenges.

    “Cindy was amazing with our 5 kids. She worked hard to individualize each lesson for each student. She found pieces that interested my teen boys and kept them challenged and playing. She has such a love for the kids and a love for teaching piano.”

  • – LR, parent

    “We would highly recommend Cindy as a piano teacher. She has years of experience and she passes her love for music and piano on to her students. She is patient and kind, and tailored her lessons based on how our daughter learns best.”

  • – RB, parent

    “Cindy has taught piano to some or all of our six children every year for the past five years. Our kids have loved working with her and advanced in their piano abilities.”
