A Mom's ReviewPat taught my son from his first piano lesson in 2nd grade until 10th grade, and is currently teaching my daughter piano as well. She is a wonderful teacher and over the years we have watched not only our own children but the other children at recitals as they have grown and learned to love music. She encourages them not only to love classical music but to have fun as well. Her recitals are held 3 times a year and they are always a highlight for our whole family to attend. One of my favorite memories was the day we went straight from my son's baseball playoffs to his piano recital, where they played a duet of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" together. During his Star Wars phase, his recital pieces were Star Wars theme songs. She always tailored his pieces to his interests or chose them to challenge him in new ways and that made learning them fun for him.
My children also participated in both band and orchestra and were both first chairs for their instruments in middle school. I know this was in no small part related to Pat's instruction in music theory in piano. She has truly instilled a love of music in both of my children and I am thankful for everything she has done to encourage them in it. -- Mary M.
