Mrs Lori has been my piano teacher for about 2 years now and I can definitely say that I've enjoyed every lesson. She teaches with such passion and skill- I am so thankful to be able to learn from her. I highly recommend her to anyone who's looking for a piano teacher!
Lori has helped my son advance significantly in his piano playing ability in the past year.
Lori is a wonderful piano teacher, she is always well planned, explains new concepts clearly and is very encouraging. We highly recommend Grace Notes!
Mrs. Silsbee was my piano teacher from ages 11-15. I went from knowing nothing more than chopsticks to being able to learn hymnplaying for church. As much as I didn't appreciate it at the time, she was very thorough and the theory was much appreciated in the later years when I had to teach myself further things when she had moved away. I've been playing in church for fifteen years now, I've taught several children, and played in several choirs. I am so thankful for the excellent and patient instruction I received from Lori, and of course I would highly recommend her to anyone who desires to learn piano. She was fun and encouraging, and forgiving yet firm when I was slack in my practicing. Go for it! Learn from her! You won't regret the good investment!
Lori is a very thorough piano teacher and gave my daughter an excellent base and grounding in piano.
Lori has been a wonderful music teacher for my teenage son. She has brought him on wonderfully, keeping him motivated and providing a varied and interesting teaching programme. I love that Lori also offers improvisation and chord progression tutoring alongside learning to read music. I would highly recommend Lori as a piano teacher for any age.
Miss Lori showed me there's more to piano than just classical & has helped me with my hymn improvisation. She has a great balance in everything & teaches with such joy & passion & keeps learning piano interesting. I've only had her as my teacher a year & I've enjoyed every lesson & am very thankful she taught me.
