Amazing progress!

Both my wife and I are very impressed by your highly professional and committed work with Rosa, as well as your charismatic and humorous presence, that she really enjoys! She is now addicted to piano playing, but also makes such an amazing progress thanks to you! Great job!
Parent of Rosa

Every lesson a lot of fun!

Lavinia is a great and inspiring teacher! She is really patient. She is very perceptive and gives a lot of advice about hands position and movement, or how to manage that really difficult part in a music piece. She knows how to make difficult things easy and makes you feel confident and enjoy the music you play, instead of struggle! However, most important, she has a contagious sense of humour, which makes every lesson a lot of fun!
