  • Divya Puliyel

    Cindy is a gifted teacher and very good at motivating her students. She has instilled a love for music in both my children. She recognizes their strengths as well as areas that need more work and tailors their lessons accordingly.

  • Carolyn Drever

    The flexibility with my very busy Mom schedule. Yet Cindy still fits my kids in and they really enjoy the lessons. Music is a wonderful gift to share. I also appreciate the $20 lesson amount.

  • Devon G.

    Two of our children (10 & 14 years old) are taking piano lessons with Cindy and have both grown in their ability and love for music! We couldn’t be happier!

  • Meredith Beavers

    Cindy is an outstanding teacher! My 12 year old son started taking lessons with her less than a year ago and had never played the piano before. He has made terrific progress and it is because of her talent, encouragement and amazing teaching ability. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for piano lessons.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I will work with the parent or student in learning their goals. After a foundation is built we can branch into other styles if desired. I consider note-learning and technique very important, but it will not get in the way of making music!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Bachelor of Music - The Cleveland Institute of Music

Masters in Music Ed. - Case Western Reserve University

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching while still a student at the Cleveland Institute of Music in their preparatory department, in conjunction with my pedagogy classes.  Afterwards, I branched out privately.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught very beginners as young as 4.  I have taught shy, outgoing, and teens and adults.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Always enjoy annual student recitals! An opportunity to reflect on students’ progress, while enjoying some fun music!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be willing to dedicate yourself to regular practice.  Look for a teacher who is enthusiastic and had experience.  If looking for your child, the teacher should love kids.  A trial lesson is helpful if offered.  I do!
