Samee and Aaron are both excellent teachers, and we owe so much of the progress that our daughter has made on the piano to their guidance, professionalism, and instruction!
Roxanne, parent
My daughter is loving her voice lessons here. Highly recommend!
Danielle, parent
Samee is really in tune to the individual needs of her students. She knew my style and music preferences in a very short time. She also did an amazing job coordinating my senior recital. Samee is a great teacher for advanced, beginner, or any kind of piano student.
Bethany, student, 18
During the years my girls took piano lessons from Samee, I saw great progress in both their technique and performance confidence. I have had the opportunity to observe Samee interacting with beginning and advanced piano students and her love for both her students and music is very evident. The highlight of my kids week was always piano lessons with Samee!
Cheryl, parent
Samee is one of the best piano teachers I have had. In only two years she has transformed the way I play. I love how I felt like she knew me in my very first lesson. I think she is a very knowledgeable person and she has helped me see many things in a new way. I enjoyed my time studying under Samee and I love her passion for music.
