    She is encouraging and pushes my son to improve each lesson.

  • Jason Clark

    She tailored her teaching style to meet my goals and timelines

  • Bliss Peterson

    Pamela has instructed 3 of our children (plus myself, when I took some time to take lessons again!) All three are differently abled learners (two of them have autism.) Pamela is patient, loving and kind, but also incredibly creative. She has made learning to read music and play an instrument fun for all of them, and I believe their love of music will last their lifetimes.

    I am a member of Pam's ukulele class. I love our lessons ... it is one of my favorite hours each week. Pam makes learning fun by breaking down fingering, rhythms, musical phrasing, etc. She has taken three novice players from rank beginners to a cohesive ensemble playing a three part arrangement of a 1928 classic show tune as well as singing and playing a chordal arrangement of an Elvis Presley favorite at a student recital. She encourages her students with positive feedback and concrete, practical suggestions to help with technique and improved musicianship. But most of all she is a caring and wise woman who shares her love of music and life with all who know her.

Make sure that your teacher helps fulfill your personal goals for piano. If you want to pursue piano in college, your lessons should help you prepare for that. If your lessons are for fun, they should be fun!!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
