Jay W. says, "My daughter, Vivian has been taking piano lessons from Ms. Lisa Thomas for last 4 years. Vivian describes Ms. Lisa as fun, friendly, patient and the best teacher. Vivian's favorite part of Ms. Lisa is that when she starts new songs, she often demonstrates the piece, record it and email it to her so she can listen and review how it supposed to sound like. Vivian likes to play Hymn during offering at our small church. Ms. Lisa has been great in helping to perfect the songs. I highly recommend Ms. Lisa as a piano teacher and am envious of her future students who can experience her contagious passion and love of music first hand. " Read more

James M.
Lisa is a fantastic teacher. She really takes the time to understand her students' unique strengths and talents and teach to those strengths. At the same time, she understands her students' challenges and areas that may need improvement, and she helps students to address those areas with patience, support and creativity. My daughter has learned so much from Lisa and has grown tremendously as a musician while studying with her.

Ideal instructor in so many way! Able to tailor lessons to my particular needs and tastes (mostly baroque) though he encourages me to push beyond my meager abilities. As an aging baby boomer myself, I am so happy to find someone who has allowed me to accomplish a lifelong dream: to play better than I did when I took lessons as a kid. Joe emphasizes good technique but still makes lessons fun. Definitely 5 stars!
