Meryll D. says, "Ms. Jan has been a wonderful piano teacher for my two girls for the past 3 years. She has always been very professional and patient with them. They now both love and enjoy playing on their free time thanks to her, who has inspired them to do their best and love music by teaching them counts and how to read notes without difficulty. My oldest went from playing with only 1 hand to playing Saint-Saens -“The Swan.” I am impressed with the amount of skill they have acquired at their age (10yr and 12yr). Ms. Jan comes to our house with a positive attitude and always has a smile on her face. We love her! If you are looking for a dependable, trustworthy, talented piano teacher who is motivating and kind, I highly recommend her! " Read more

I decided to learn how to play piano for the first time at age 24 and Sally has been an excellent first teacher. There are several things that I think she has done well, but I think the most important thing has been that she has helped to foster and inspire my enjoyment of playing piano. Sally obviously loves playing the piano herself and that has definitely passed onto me during our lessons. I started playing piano on a whim several months ago and I'm even more excited now about learning and practicing than I was when I started and I think that speaks a lot to how good Sally has been as a teacher. The other aspect I've really appreciated is that Sally has been very responsive and aware of my goals and has challenged me in exactly the right ways. I feel like I've learned far more than I ever expected to in my first 5 months of playing. There were several times Sally gave me scores to learn that I thought were going to be too challenging for me, when in fact they really pushed me to improve quickly and increased my enjoyment of playing/practicing. Finally, the little things. Sally has been very easy to communicate with and flexible with lessons. We have never had a miscommunication about lesson time/location and she has been very flexible when I haven't been able to do our standard times. Overall, I've really enjoyed my five months learning how to play the piano from Sally and I would 100% recommend her to any other person looking to learn how to play piano for the first time or improve on their existing skills.
