Title:  Piano Lessons
Testimonial:  In less than a year’s time, Alexandra was able to take me from barely being able to read music to playing two of three movements of a classical sonata. I have many high encomiums for her teaching skills, learning techniques, never ending patience, and an ability to maintain my interest in something I really was not sure about to begin with. Alexandra has been a tremendous pleasure to work with and is my high recommendation for any beginning or intermediate piano student.
