“We were searching for a piano teacher for our five year old son and Ms. Elise came highly recommended from long time friends.  Our son loves her; she works very well with him and helps to keep his focused and motivated by challenging him.  One year later, we have seen tremendous growth and our son contines to remain engaged and excited to learn more.  As one can imagine, teaching a five year old boy classical piano is not easy but Ms. Elise figured it out for our son.  We now see why our friends kept their two sons with her from kindergarten to the end of high school;  we highly recommend her also!”

“Elise taught my 2 children and I am now taking lessons.  My children had special needs and she had a great deal of patience and understand on how to customize their lessons.  My daughter studied for 6 years and my son studied for 12 years.  As they are both grown now, they continue to play for their own enjoyment.  I will always be grateful for what Elise brought into their (and my) lives.”

“My daughter has been learning piano with Ms. Elise since kindergarten, now she’s in the eighth grade and have great passion with piano and music.  We never force her on practice or was capable to teach her at home.  We so enjoyed to listen to her playing piano because she just loved to do so.  Ms. Elise is a great teacher, very professional, and her class with my daughter has always been encouraging, patient, and fun.  During the pandemic time, I would sometimes hear & see her online sessions with Ms. Elise.  Ms. Elise was able to see my daughter’s every key strokes and gave her very effective instructions, as if they were together face-to-face.  There were loads of laughs and cheers the entire session, and of cause great music.  My daughter doesn’t like extra curriculums, but she would want to keep the piano lessons with Ms. Elise forever!”
