    I like her liked her ability to keep my five year old focused.

  • Thalia Badillo

    Ms. Abby is patient with my teenage son who has been taking piano lessons with her for 3 years. She truly knows how to teach. Her passion and love for music and teaching can easily be seen. My son discovered his hidden talent all because of Ms. Abby’s ability to guide him and show him the way. With 100% of confidence, I recommend Abby’s Studio for people of ALL ages. You will love her just as we do without a doubt!

  • Mr. and Ms. Gilbert Parra

    Abbey is such a patient, caring and a most inspiring person. The class environment is very pleasant and Abbey always accommodates her student’s wishes. We would highly recommend Abbey as a teacher for any age group if patience and motivation are a priority


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

Evaluate student's appitude and likes.  Gear lessons to these aspects.  I REQUIRE student to have a piano or full keyboard (88 keys with pedals) for regular practice as technique is a huge part of PLAYING the piano!

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

Private lessons from age 5 to 19 years.  Teaching since age 18 to all ages and desires.  Teaching almost 60 years.

How did you get started teaching?

Private teacher allowed me to begin teaching his starting students when I was in high school.  Have taught continually as an avocation but teach because I love to teach.

What types of students have you worked with?

Very young and also adults.  Have had some with behavioral and physical issues.  Each student is treated as individual and lessons are geared to student's apptitude, abilities, interests and, of great importance, the support the student has from those interested in the student's progress.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I enjoy recitals of my students.  Recitals are 'events' with themes and time for those in attendance to mingle and get to know one another.  Students can see progress attained as new students observe more advanced to encourage diligence.

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

I really want my students to PLAY piano and enjoy playing the piano.  i try not to have boring or drudgery lessons though some basics require focus and effort.

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

Students need to consider their committment to the task and their expectations.
