"I feel SO good about my lessons with Vanessa. I appreciate how she customizes the lesson and invites me to do exercises specifically for MY voice. It opens me up more and I really appreciate that!"

I gifted myself piano lessons with Vanessa 30 years after the last time I was a student and have rediscovered the joy of playing! Vanessa's teaching is so affirming, and she has taught me techniques to unlock years of stuck mental habits that kept me from fully enjoying the music. I love our lessons and all that I am learning from my amazing teacher!

"THANK YOU for the lovely session today. Long awaited and truly memorable! I'm feeling a sense of empowerment and confidence in my own voice that I really want to start building on a little each day."

“My sister and I had the pleasure of having Vanessa for over 6 years as our piano teacher and our connection remained strong beyond those years.

Not only did she make her lessons engaging, but her passion for music and teaching was evident through each interaction. She is calm, patient, and has a special gift of making her students feel comfortable in their musical ability.

We are forever grateful for Vanessa and the major impact she has had on our musical journeys. I would highly recommend Vanessa to anyone looking for a musical instructor - her talent and passion is truly inspiring.”

~ Meagan Watts
