Reviews for Chicago classical piano lessons

Recent success stories from people in the Chicago area.
Arbin is an accomplished pianist and we are lucky to have her as DS's piano teacher. Arbin taught DS since two years ago when he was 10. With her teaching, some bad habits, like finger movements, posture are corrected and DS got started on classical pieces. The progress in his piano skill was obvious and we constantly get praise from friends. During these two years, Arbin organized several rehearsals for her students on her own time, despite her busy schedule at school. She also invites us to concerts at her school (CSLB) to give DS more exposure to piano music. She communicated with us about the status of the DS constantly, letting us know if DS is tired or less motivated and what to work on for homework. She takes responsibility over her students' progress. If she finds it is difficult to handle certain student she will bring it up. In my other DS's case, he was not interested in piano and Arvin was quick to notice and told us directly that she is not the suitable teacher for him. We also went to a couple of her performances and was impressed by her performance and the audience's reaction. We are sorry that she left Socal and we hope we will be fortunate enough to find another piano teacher like her. Overall, Arvin is a talented pianist, responsible teacher and a good friend.
