“I love our sessions and it is with heavy heart that I must tell you that I have decided not to continue with piano lessons in the summer or in September. I am really hoping I will be able to pick it up again in a year and will see you if you can squeeze me in or put me on a wait list at that time. You are an amazing piano teacher and I’m very grateful for the lessons I’ve had to date and that I have been able to enjoy playing again as an adult.”

“Thanks, Alison.This is great feedback. Max is really enjoying the lessons, too. He wasn’t 100% sure if he wanted to continue with lessons when we spoke to him about it during the summer break but you have clearly managed to keep the fire burning. I can’t tell you how much we appreciate that. Our only real objective with lessons during all these years has been for him to learn to love music and that’s clearly happening thanks in no small part to you.” -September 2014
Hi Alison, It is me who should be thanking you for being such a talented and patient music teacher who inspires and engages my child each and every week.I have to tell you that when Emma was playing the other day I literally had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. That was definitely the best she has ever played and even her dad (not one who usually appreciates musical efforts) said how good she was. A huge thank you for helping her to accomplish this and always being so supportive and caring. Trust me, you are worth more than a million roses!
“Thanks Alison! Rebecca loves her lessons with you and not once, EVER, has she said that she doesn’t want to play”. -July 2013
