    “My daughter, Roussadana, has studied piano with Galyna Koerkenmeier for nine years starting when my daughter was age 5. My daughter (now at age 14) is currently continuing her studies with Ms. Koerkenmeier. During that time my daughter has progressed extensively. At age 12 my daughter relied heavily on her piano skills in auditioning for admittance at the Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts. In that year (2011) there were a record number of applicants for a very limited number of places available. Roussy was accepted with a letter congratulating accepted students because of the stiff competition. I have been very pleased with Roussy’s progress on piano while she has been with Ms. Koerkenmeier. I have number of friends that are concert pianists and I frequently attend performances of professional musicians. Some have played in my home and I play myself and listen to recordings constantly. I have attended the recitals of the students of Ms.Koerkenmeier over the period of time my daughter has studied with her and I have also observed that her other students have made great strides in playing skills. Ms. Koerkenmeier is a very fine piano teacher and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking instruction.”

    “Thank you for teaching my children! Galyna is a very knowledgeable and dedicated teacher. She is fully committed to help her students gain a deeper understanding of the theory and the technical skills necessary to achieve their full potential as pianists. Galyna patiently and masterfully instructs my two children during class. She sets high standards for her students and constantly pushes them to strive higher. She is articulate and organized, and her passion for piano shows in the way she engages her students. Those who wish to pursue music, particularly piano, should benefit the most from her knowledge and experience. Without hesitation, I will recommend Galyna to parents who are searching for a well-trained professional piano teacher to develop their child’s musical abilities.”

    “It was a long journey to find a good piano teacher for my daughter, Yana. Finally, we met Galyna and I immediately realized that she was the one I was looking for. Galyna’s expectations are high, so Yana needed to learn skills for success such as working hard, managing study and free time, and being responsible. Progress was obvious. Now, music plays an important role in my daughter’s life. Galyna, thank you very much for sharing your knowledge and touching lives of many young people.”
