Our kids, ages 9 and 7, have been receiving piano lessons from CJ for the past 4 months. They have learned more about music in those 4 months than they did the entire previous 9 months with another teacher. Our kids now look forward to piano lessons on Saturday mornings thanks to CJ! She is a talented musician and teacher who has serious standards of learning for our kids and yet her gentle kindness and respect for our kids shines through every lesson. They love having her as a teacher! Since she started teaching them, my kids have been known to say things like “Dad, I’m so proud of myself!” and “I’m doing the challenge piece, Mom!” They are learning about site reading and theory and most importantly about how staying focused and dedicated while having fun produces great results!
