An amazing and talented piano instructor. She is wonderful with students - young and old. Vanessa has been my daughters piano instructor for more than FIVE years and the time has been like a dream. I could go on and on about how Vanessa has been such a positive force in not only my daughter's music world but for me and my family as well!
I've brought my son to Vanessa to learn playing piano 6 years ago and we're still coming every week because my son is playing fantastic and he loves it! Vanessa and Mark are very good teachers! My son is attending competitions and coming back home with trophies all the time. I'm very proud of him and thank Vanessa and Mark for teaching my son!
I love how teaching is her passion. You can tell it is her life and her students are everything to her. My kids always enjoyed going for lessons, and stayed with her until they graduated. She kept their interest and they have kept playing as adults too.
Vanessa is an awesome music teacher! She spends extra time with me and my grandkids when we don't understand something... I would recommend her in a heartbeat!!
