“Linda’s warm encouragement gave me confidence that I could learn to play the piano [as an adult]… Her studio brings adult students together in friendship and mutual support.  She enriches our lives with museum and concert outings.  And, besides teaching the mechanics of piano playing, she teaches us musicianship and appreciation of musical composition.”

She makes the lessons fun, and makes the student feel special, creating a very positive, supportive atmosphere. She has inspired Max to grow and learn and given him an excellent foundation in music that he will draw upon for the rest of his life.”
