Jonathan H. says, "I have been a student of Jeri's since 2009. It took me several years to find the right teacher and I went through several before I found Jeri. For me, Jeri was by far the best fit. Jeri has been exceptionally patient with me, never forcing me to go faster than I am comfortable with, but always challenging me.
The first thing that Jeri did was to focus on and correct my technique to help me to avoid injury. With Jeri, I’ve actually learned to become a fan of scales and exercises!
Recitals are especially nerve racking for me. Jeri helped me learn to prepare for recitals so that I was fully ready. In addition to the excellent preparation of my material, Jeri taught me relaxation techniques specific to performance.
For someone who started as an adult, and has had to juggle a busy schedule with work, children, and limited practice time, I’ve advanced at a good pace with Jeri, moving from beginner to an advanced intermediate level. Jeri is an exceptional pianist herself, and is very well equipped to handle students at every level, from beginner to advanced.
Jeri is a consummate professional, is extremely knowledgeable, and keeps up-to-date with continuing education and professional activities. From her continuing education and involvement, she has brought back new ideas and learning techniques which we’ve been able to apply directly to help me.
It’s been a pleasure to work with Jeri all these years and I highly recommend her.
