"Genevieve is the absolute best piano teacher you could hope for. I'm an adult student (she teaches kids and grown ups) and I came to her almost 4 years ago with no music background. She's taught me to read music, play pieces I love, and most importantly to enjoy the experience. She is incredibly patient, kind and fun to be with. She has mastered this art of challenging her students to grow without pushing past the brink of frustration. I'm always amazed at her ability to keep me engaged and learning. She is the reason I have stuck with piano. Seriously. She's amazing." "Genevieve is the absolute best piano teacher you could hope for.

"Genevieve is a knowledgeable, patient, and enthusiastic piano teacher who imparts good techniques and at the same time instills a lifelong appreciation of music. She makes playing the piano fun for my sons. She is professional, respectful, responsive and warm. She is flexible with scheduling and whenever I needed to adjust my time due to scheduling conflicts she would do her best to accommodate me. I highly recommend her to any one who is interested in learning to play the piano."
"I am almost 50 years old with no music background at all. I thought that learning how to play the piano was going to be extremely difficult but with Genevieve's professional dedication and patience I can read music and play the piano and it has not only been fairly easy thanks to her style of teaching but very enjoyable."
"I am an adult student with limited background in piano and proof that you can learn to play the piano at any age - with the help of a great teacher! Genevieve is that great teacher. Genevieve's love of music shines through as well as her skill and talent as a teacher for every skill level. I get the piano and music in new ways and that is very exciting! I feel she has a family of students - young and old(?) - and we all grow, learn and enjoy together as we become better piano players. You can see the pride and warmth coming from each student towards her in her recitals."
"My two daughters started with Genevieve when they were in kindergarten and they are now 6th and 8th graders.... and we absolutely love her! She is a great teacher, always so sweet and patient. My girls have learned to read music and play classical pieces as well as pieces from today's music (which I think is a good balance). Watching/listening to all of her students perform at the recitals is always such a treat. If you are looking for a piano teacher for your child (or you - it's never too late!), I highly recommend Genevieve!"

"My stepdaughter has been going to Genevieve since she was 7 years old! She is now 15 and she has always loved taking lessons from Genevieve. She is very kind and picks great music choices. We look forward to attending the spring and winter recitals every year!"
"Genevieve is patient and kind and gets to know her students well. She let's them pick music too, she rewards them for practicing, she is great!! I have referred her many times over and will continue to do so."
"My son took piano lessons with Genevieve throughout most of elementary school. I strongly recommend Genevieve as a music instructor because of her patience, her knowledge of music, and her ability to tailor her lessons to the student's learning style and musical interests. The lessons moved along at a good pace, and the assigned practice schedule was a reasonable one. Genevieve is very personable and knew how to keep my son focused on the material, even though he is a chatterbox and enjoyed talking to her about all things art!
One of my and my son's favorite aspects of her teaching style is how she pays attention to what type of playing style the student has and provides gentle guidance to improve technique while also choosing pieces that the student is interested in learning. Genevieve worked with my son on positioning of his hands and posture, and chose pieces that highlighted his natural inclination toward jazzy/bluesy piano and current pop hits. One of his favorite memories was learning a popular Katy Perry song that he later performed in a school talent show. The discipline, hard work, and courage required to learn how to play an instrument and be a part of a recital are all valuable qualities that my son got from his piano lessons with Genevieve. I highly recommend her as a fun and knowledgeable piano teacher!"
"My eldest daughter Pam started being a raw talent polished for 10 years by Genevieve and became a gem in playing the piano. What's amazing about Genevieve is that her approach in polishing her students is through treating them like her own kids or as little brothers/sisters under her wings. Sweet yet firm. Gentle yet precise. Steady yet progressive.
Genevieve is very patient. Her fee is reasonable. She is easy to work with, with regards to change of schedules. She always have numerous recitals each year showcasing the fruit of her student's hardwork.
Now, after my eldest daughter, my younger daughter Juliana is slowly working her way under Genevieve's guidance to be a gem in playing the piano.
Genevieve is indeed a blessing in the line of music. Through teaching the kids how to maximize their potentials in piano, thus discovering the magic of music eventually!"
My son has been taking piano lessons with Genevieve for 3 years and we both absolutely love her! She has a wonderful teaching style that keeps kids fully engaged, and having fun while learning how to read music and play piano."
"Genevieve is a fantastic, patient, and talented teacher! My 8 year old is loving learning from her."
