As a pianist myself, I was looking for a piano teacher who would provide a well-rounded experience for my children, while making learning fun and engaging. Mrs. Barney has exceeded my expectations! Her vast knowledge of music repertoire, variety of teaching methods, and involvement with other music teachers on a national level have made for a wonderful learning environment. She constantly presents new ideas and methods in her studio. She encourages improvisation and experimentation, in addition to classical methods. Mrs. Barney provides an amazing musical experience, giving children an appreciation for music, in addition to a love for the piano.
