“My teenage daughter wanted to learn to play the piano but was – at first – uninterested in anything beyond simplistic pop tunes. Arjola’s unique ability to connect with students where they are, and her sheer enthusiasm and infectious joy in music, gently brought Madeleine around to realizing that she could (and should) aim higher. Now, Madeleine seeks out challenging pieces to learn, and perhaps most important, has been given the skills to tackle them. A great teacher, of any subject, draws out of her students a desire for excellence rather than imposing the rigidity of a “one size fits all” approach – and as I saw firsthand, Arjola is just such a teacher!”
