Your passion & dedication in what you love doing is very apparent and looked upon, it’s amazing! I’m extremely grateful to have you as my piano instructor.

Thank you so much for your excellent music programs which you put together. I enjoy your Sunday showcases very much with top artists from around the music world. Now I understand much better what music wants to tell us! Not to forget the lovely intermission breaks with Claudia’s Austrian homemade specialties from original recipes and good Viennese coffee.

John and I really enjoyed your soiree programme yesterday. It’s a special day when we hear you play the piano. And especially a big thanks for my glitzy bag of Austrian chocolates. I am enjoying them, only one a day and no sharing! Pam Ward

Thank you both Claudia & Jim for hosting such a beautiful event with such deliciousness!

Hi friends!

Is anyone looking at starting piano lessons? I wanted to share my son’s studio! It’s a very creative program and each student works on materials they are interested in (dinosaur pieces, nature pieces etc). Teacher Claudia also has a rewards system, ‘piano bucks’. The harder you work, the more bucks you receive. They can be redeemed for prizes like Chapters GC, London Drugs GC, DQ Cakes ETC. It is also great to be at a studio with recitals so the kids can show off their talents. Not only is this a piano studio – it is also an arts studio. Students create artwork to go along with their music. Lastly, this program creates confidence in individuality and inspires and motivates children to work hard. Since being with teacher Claudia my children have found a love for piano/music that they didn’t have before. They also feel confident to perform and have a great sense of pride in their work.

I am so grateful to have had you as my piano teacher. I will forever remember all the wonderful things you taught me like discipline, perfection and the art of performing. I will miss having you as not only a teacher but also an inspiration xoxox

Catalina Allenby

Thank you for teaching me all these years.Not only did I learn the skills of piano from you, but also the art and passion of music and the positive attitude towards life. Everything you taught me will be treasured by me forever. I will always remember you. Thank you again for being such a wonderful piano teacher!

Grace Lei

You are such a positive influence in Clare’s life. I certainly wish they were more teachers like you – teachers who build positive relationships with their students and are able to challenge and inspire.

Lynn Sully

Every time I am near a piano, I think of you. You are one of the few people in the world who has made a career out of doing something they absolutely love doing. Keep on inspiring your students.

Christina Nordquist
