    Sharon has taught our 5 children piano for nearly 20 years. Her combination of in-studio and competition performances allows the students to work towards a goal at all times. She is a kind woman that coaches her students to work hard each week....and the student is rewarded for it. Her depth of knowledge for piano instruction would be hard to match anywhere else. We love her like family!
