“Getting Tim randomly paired with Victoria at the studio where he started lessons turned out better than I could have ever imagined! [Her] cheerful and positive, yet calm and peaceful personality works well with his quiet demeanor. She [teaches] technical elements and he has a greater appreciation since he learned to enjoy playing first. She challenges, motivates, praises, and interacts in his life each week. As a parent, I’ve appreciated how professionally she runs her studio. She communicates well and runs a structured, but personable business in addition to her own musical ability. Victoria is a treasured part of our family’s story.”
-S. Richner, piano parent
