Mrs. Heera is a good and patient teacher. She is always ready and my son has developed and grown in music so much since we started with Mrs. Heera. We love her and good job. 🙂
We are very excited to have found such an exceptional teacher. She uses every last drop of time teaching, reinforcing, encouraging, and challenging our daughter.
Our daughter, in the short time we’ve spent taking lessons, has developed great practice habits, and tells us she wants to be a professional pianist when she grows up! It’s very encouraging to see the genuine excitement from our daughter and how much she has learned in such a short time. Thanks! -Ryan
She is the best! – Ryleigh
We absolutely love Heera! She works so well with Ella and is so patient, yet pushes her to always work a little harder and even more after that. Ella’s piano is becoming much more artistic under Heera’s guidance. Thank you so much for everything Heera! You are a perfect match for Ella, and we couldn’t be happier! -Amy Pike
Heera is an amazing teacher. I love spending time with her. -Annelyn Caldwell
We think Heera is a wonderful caring instructor! She is genuinely interested in Elizeh’s progress. I appreciate her encouragement having Elizeh strive to improve week after week. It has been very rewarding to see how far Elizeh has advance in just a few years. Our daughter loves music but it takes a great teacher to bring out her natural talent. Thank you Heera!! -Katherine Tarkian
