Ms. Michelle is the best teacher that I have heard about. She takes an interest in each student and tailoring her instruction to ensure each students is getting what they need. Each student is challenged, but only as far as she believe they would like. She encourages students to participate in music exams, festivals and audition; and helps them prepare for them. Each student has an idea of the music they like to play and will try to stay within their comfort zone. She tries to get them to go outside of their comfort zones and try a variety of music, which helps them play other music that would not have on their own. Not only does she teach them to play music, she encourages and helps them read and write music. She is very patient, communicates well and seems to enjoy helping students learn music. Our daughter has been going to her for 5 years and will continue to so. We ask our daughter every year do you want to continue with music lessons, knowing that this means: we pay and she practices, and our daughter is always adamant that she wants to continue. I believe Ms. Michelle has contributes to her desire to continue playing music, because of the her dedication to each student. I recommend Michelle Ayler to anyone who mentions they are looking for a good piano teacher.
My children have been taking lessons here for 6 years and have learned so much and become really great pianists - all due to the instructor at MEA piano. She is a great teacher and I recommend her to everyone I meet!
