Testimonials

"...I hope you remember Lyra S. She has been with the Music Place for about 4 years now. I asked you about the teachers that helped prepare for the RCM and you recommended Patricia. We were on the waitlist for sometime and were very fortunate to get private lessons with her. We couldn't be more happy and satisfied. I wanted to bring it to your notice that Lyra received the State Certificate of Excellence and Center Certificate of Excellence for RCM preparatory level (Voice) and Center Certificate of Excellence for RCM level 1 (Voice)... I can not say enough about how dedicated Patricia is.

The sincere effort she puts in teaching Lyra the music is simply commendable. Just good is not enough for her especially when she knows that Lyra is capable of doing better and even perfecting it. Patricia inspires and guides her to do better and better. She explains to Lyra all the technicalities of singing and playing piano. Lyra has already been singing German, Italian, French and English folk songs along with the Star Spangled Banner. Thanks to Patricia! Lyra has been singing in her school at the talent show and some other functions and a lot of parents have asked about where she is learning the music from. I have recommended The Music Place and Patricia to them. I think 4 of the families have joined the Music Place already. :) " ~ Sveta
