"My son started lessons at Aria Studios when he was newly 4 and our experience with her has been amazing! Jeanette Shempert is the most kind, talented, and patient teacher.
We had to leave Aria for a short time and we never did find anther teacher that was as loving and gentle and clearly meant to teach young children to not only play, but love the piano.
I have also always thoroughly enjoyed the recitals Aria puts on and I hope we can stay with Aria for the duration of my sons piano experience!
Thank you Aria studios!"
