Moe S. 4 years agoFeona is an excellent teacher on the piano and very knowledgeable in music and theory. She is patient and communicative on piano playing and music in general. I have a better sense and confidence with playing and music learning because of her. I seriously recommend her teaching for both beginners and advance persons interesting in piano lessons. I highly recommend her as a teacher. You will be glad you worked with someone with such a diverse set of skills and talents.
