"Carmen is an amazing and inspirational teacher. As a student who started learning piano at a relatively older age, I was inspired by Carmen's dedication and passion for teaching to work harder at practicing piano and improving my technique. While she is strict and expects continuous improvement from he'd students, Carmen has always been considerate and patient and has never made me feel offended or discouraged from continuing to play piano. She genuinely cares for her students and treats them with the same warmth as a mother would treat her own children. Carmen is not only my piano teacher but my mentor and friend. I am sure that younger and older students alike will find value and satisfaction from learning the art of playing piano from Carmen."
