“Michele brings many talents to her music and her teaching. She has an uncanny ability to match each student with exactly the piece of music best suited to both the child's current skill level and his or her expressive needs. She keeps children engaged through the years when others stop practicing and quit lessons.”
- Genny Krob
Former Chair, Board of Education

“I began studying with Michele after a more than fifteen year hiatus from playing the piano. She is a gifted teacher – her musical talent is only the beginning. Her real gift is her ability to relate to each of her students and strike just the right balance between being demanding and encouraging at the same time. Michele has a way of making the complex topics of music theory accessible to her students according to their age and background in music. I've watched Michele with some of her younger students and have been impressed with her ability to translate otherwise complex concepts into something that is manageable for a young child.”
- An Adult Student

“Excellent local teachers such as Michele who specialize in teaching music theory are a rarity and I hope students take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity.” He then went on to say, “Thank you for offering this enriching opportunity to my students.”
