I have two children who take lessons with Ms. Elza. My older child took traditional piano lessons before finding the Australian method. She did well with it, but I wanted my younger child to also begin taking lessons. When we found Ms. Elza, my younger child was not yet diagnosed with dyslexia. And by a happy coincidence, the Australian method helped my younger child learn playing the piano in a more natural way. The traditional method would have made learning for him more difficult and frustrating. Now, he also plays percussion in the school band. His lessons with Ms. Elza has helped in him other aspects of his growth development. Ms. Elza is a wonderful teacher. She is patient and at the same time, strict. Watching them take lessons, I am always amazed with Ms. Elza's musical abilities. She hears the subtle nuances of their playing and corrects them without seeing the music. It is a pleasure to watch her fingers touch the piano keys like they have a mind of their own when she demonstrates how to play their music. I highly recommend Ms. Elza to anyone at different ages and stages of learning ability.
My son, 8 yo is taking piano lessons from Ms Elza. After 5 months we are totally delighted and amazed with the result. He used to follow classical method with different teacher but we felt that he was not engaged and simply didn’t enjoy it. With Ms. Elza we have totally different experience and we can clearly see that our son likes it a lot.
By now he can play different styles including classical, jazz, contemporary pieces. Overall he can play around 20 different substantial melodies by memory.
The pattern ideas of introducing blues led him understand music very easily. He also loves the wide variety of songs from classic to modern styles.
Ms. Elza has done a phenomenal job with him.
We can't be grateful enough to her and we highly recommend her services as well as the method she is following which makes piano lessons so fun and easy.
