Private Lessons

"Our son is a third-year piano student at The Musical Offering and we will always feel grateful to the parent who suggested the school and teacher as the ideal fit for our then second grader. The teachers get to know their students as individuals and conduct their studies accordingly.  In our case, our son has been guided with a wonderful balance of seriousness and fun. At our son's first recital we enjoyed the grave performance of a James Bond theme, and we are now enjoying his current favorite (ever, he says), Bach's Polonaise in G minor!"
