“I took weekly piano lessons with Andrea during my senior year at Babson College, and I could not have asked for a better teacher. From even before the first lesson, Andrea took the time to get to know me, my knowledge and skill levels, and my goals. She teaches the Russian technique, something I really appreciated from the beginning and is now a natural part of my playing style. The most important part about taking lessons with Andrea is that she is patient and understanding, which eliminated any negative pressure and helped me advance every week. Lessons are challenging, but with Andrea, I felt like I could do anything! I would recommend Andrea to anyone of any skill level.” Christopher L.
“Andrea is a remarkable teacher. She sets high standards, particularly to establish techniques for good tone and proper phrasing, yet finds things to praise even when the playing is less than perfect. I appreciate the respect she shows me as an adult learner (and beginner at piano), knowing when to push me to stay with a piece and when to allow me to move on. Our lessons are enjoyable but serious, with very concrete practice goals. This is a much more satisfying hobby than I expected when I started, a credit to Andrea’s patience and knowledge.” Naomi C.
“Lessons with Andrea have helped me rediscover the joy of playing piano. After years of not playing, I was hesitant to start again. She took the time to get to know my objective, my skill level, and me. Based on what she learned, she has customized the song selection and pace. Her love for teaching truly motivates me!” Betsy S.
