We hold these in a beautiful hall with a grand piano. 

In December many of our students also choose to attend our small group classes where they have an opportunity to perform for their peers.

"Lisa is a true gem! My daughter has loved taking lessons from Lisa for the past 2 years. Her enthusiasm for her students combined with her sweet spirit, kindness and patience make her perfect for younger students beginning ... and, seeing how much her incredibly talented older students love her at the recitals demonstrates the way she grows young musicians into mature performers. We highly recommend!" - Corey A.

"Lisa was my first piano teacher as a kid and I can't recommend her enough. At the time, I was only interested in playing film music, not repertoire. Most piano teachers have a firmly one-dimensional approach, but Lisa encouraged my interests and provided a foundation that gave me a firm grasp of the basics while also allowing me branch out and be creative. I work in Los Angeles now as a film composer. Lisa is the best!" - David R.

"If I could give Mrs. Emmick more than 5 stars, I would! Both my son and daughter were students of Mrs. Emmick. My son began at 7 years old and just graduated high school, being taught by Mrs. Emmick the entire time. She fostered in him a love of music. She was a gentle, kind teacher, but also had high standards. Her personality is a joy! Piano was my daughters secondary instrument and under Mrs. Emmick's direction, she quickly became a proficient piano player. They both learned a variety of music and play beautifully. Not only is Mrs. Emmick an incredibly gifted instructor, she is an amazing musician as well. We are grateful to her for pouring into our children and highly recommend her! " - Gina F.
