"Natalie's fun, energetic, individualized lessons have been so good for my introverted daughter. Natalie has been excellent at building relationship and causing piano to be fun and enjoyable. My daughter has grown so much in piano and music. The confidence that she has gained extends beyond music. I am grateful to have Natalie as my daughter's piano instructor." - Amy H., parent
"My son Frankie has grown and flourished with Natalie's instructional methods. Her approach showed Frankie from the very beginning that playing the piano was fun and a creative outlet. He has taken this mentality and run with it - often figuring out tunes by ear and actively trying to come up with his own compositions. He views the piano as a friend and companion rather than something to conquer because of Natalie's deft skills in teaching excitable young children with patience and kindness. We could not have found a better teacher and we will always be grateful for Natalie's grace and care in teaching Frankie." - Paula K., parent
"Natalie is a great teacher. We really love the learning games she incorporates into lessons. We get to use our imagination a lot and that makes piano lessons really fun. She always smiles when she sees us and that makes us happy to learn too." - Basil (9), Finnegan (11)
"I am so pleased we found Natalie's studio. She is warm, inviting and truly cares about her students. Natalie, uses innovative ways to teaching curious minds. My kids are definitely blossoming as little musicians since we've begun lessons at inRenaissance.- Kelly S., parent
"After I retired, I decided to give piano another try, having a note-very-fulfilling or productive experience in my youth. When I met Natalie, what impressed me was how interested she was in trying to figure out what my special abilities and interests were. Natalie has the unique gift of being able to inspire and motivate; her feedback always constructive and yet gentle. A whole new world has opened up to me, thanks to her." - Anne H., Retired Professor Emeritus
"Natalie is amazing with young piano players! They adore her and she keeps them highly motivated to practice and always do their best. She's creative and adapts her teaching style to their learning style." - Heather G., parent
"I am a retired middle school teacher. I have wanted to go back to piano lessons for a while, but teaching totally engulfed my life. When I retired I wanted to be sure to keep myself busy, including using my brain. Piano lessons were the answer. I knew a bit about music and piano, but I wanted to learn for the fun of playing and listening to the music, just for me. Natalie has been a great piano teacher for me for a year and a
half. She pushes me, just enough, listens without telling me I’m
playing a wrong note and encourages me to continue to practice as I am. My lessons are a fun learning experience every time. Natalie is the perfect match for anyone wanting to learn to play the piano." - Holly H., Jan. 2021
