My daughter began her very first piano lessons at 8 years old with Ms. Engel and she has continued for 6 years! Ms. Engel is a caring, fun and encouraging teacher. She has a great balance in teaching music theory, effective practice techniques and performance skills to each individual student. My daughter loves going to lessons and has become a more confident musician each year. My daughter leaves each lesson motivated to master her new pieces, practice her scales and work on sight-reading.
Ms. Engel’s studio is beautiful with a stunning grand piano. There is even a waiting area where I can relax with a book while my daughter is taught her lesson. My daughter wants to continue her lessons with Ms. Engel through high school. We are so happy that we chose Ms. Engel to be her piano teacher. I definitely recommend piano lessons with Ms. Engel to every parent who wants to give the life-long gift of music to their children.
Ms. Engel is an amazing teacher. She has been teaching my daughter for 4 years now and her love of music and teaching have turned my daughter into a musician (well, in training). But most importantly, my daughter loves it! Ms. Engel keeps her motivated with pieces she loves to learn and challenges her to grow but at a perfect pace. Tamara is a warm, passionate, caring teacher who is also reliable and fun! My daughter is confident in playing and has made wonderful progress. I would highly recommend Tamara as a piano teacher to any age. It’s been a great experience.
Tamara is a wonderful teacher, guiding star and great influence in my daughter's life. She understands how to transform something very difficult like playing the piano and turning it into a fun, enjoyable and pleasurable activity.
