Her students have the opportunity to learn pieces they really enjoy, as Madeline has the ability to create sheet music of any piece, to suit her students needs.
“I have been learning piano with Madeline as my teacher for almost 7 years now. She is extremely talented but also very patient. Her love and passion for music is contagious, and over the years I have found myself enjoying piano more and more. The learning style is very intuitive and understanding based, I have never felt confused while she is explaining even the more complex musical concepts. She builds your knowledge and practical skills up over the lessons, and always has a different approach/explanation if you are finding something difficult. She has been the greatest teacher and also a dear friend to me, and I believe that there is no student that wouldn’t absolutely love piano, given Madeline as their teacher.
“I have been learning piano with Madeline for 2 years. Starting something new, for me, was daunting. The teacher will make the experience. The environment will make you feel at ease or not.
Madeline made me feel comfortable at the beginning of the journey and got me to focus on the steps within my ability; not where I thought I should be. Madeline is clearly a lifelong pianist, which as a student you are in awe of. It is her knack of breaking things down in the simplest ways that makes the experience fulfilling and enjoyable.
As a 43-year-old father, who took piano up during COVID, for something to do, I am still learning piano because of Madeline
“If you are looking to start music lessons, I highly recommend Madeline’s tuition. Madeline is an excellent teacher for either kids and adult learners. She is patient, encouraging and supportive in her approach to teaching. Madeline has excellent knowledge of music theory and she is an exceptional musician. She puts a lot of thought and planning into developing her students skills and their love of music.
