Piano Teacher: Reviews

5 star Google Reviews from Piano Rascal students

  • Genene is a wonderful teacher. She understands extremely well what her students’ strengths and weaknesses are, and is able to create engaging lessons that are tailored to each of her pupils needs. She is a great motivator and knows how to captivate students with lessons they are interested in, but also push them to go the extra mile and face the more challenging aspects of their musical development. I highly recommend her as a teacher, pianist and musical scholar. Marco Guasti
  • My daughter has had a number of other piano teachers but Genene is the one who has really motivated and inspired her. They are covering a range of styles, and doing some challenging pieces, and her playing is now a joy to listen to. I wish I’d had a teacher like this… Exceptional. Fiona Strawbridge
  • I have been taking piano lessons from Genene for several years. As someone who is well and truly up in years (70s), I can say that she is as warm and wise a music person as anyone could ever wish to meet. Her lessons are always bespoke and tailored to the individual needs of her students. She has a remarkable range of music influences, from the obvious classical formality of exercises and piece-learning for exams, to straight pop/rock/blues, to the most far- out atonal jazz – and much more! A musical education with Genene is as near a boundary-free experience as I, at least, can imagine. More, she has highly attuned perceptions and insights that enable her to discern in her students possibilities and potentialities of which they themselves might as yet be unaware. For anyone considering learning piano –I could recommend no one more highly. A truly exceptional human being. Chris Collett
  • Genene is a brilliant and fun teacher, great for all ages and stages. Myself and my daughter have been taking lessons for over a year now and have come on leaps and bounds thanks to her patient and inspirational teaching. Genene provides all the classical discipline to progress but also brilliant opportunities for improvisation and composition which make the lessons stimulating and fun. Katie Ghose
  • I’ve been a student of Genene for 6 months and really enjoy my lessons with her. I hadn’t played for 20 years, and catching up has been great. She helps you learn what you want, but can teach a range of styles of music, which is fun. Beautiful piano too. Sally Northmore
  • ( Google Rating ) Positive: Communication, Professionalism, Quality, Value. I came to Genene as an adult beginner at the start of lockdown. Our lessons have been entirely online and Genene has done a great job of teaching and encouraging me via Skype. I’ve been really happy with my consistent progress and often look back to see just how far I’ve come in such a short period. All thanks to Genene’s constant teaching, guidance and support. If you’re interested in learning piano I would highly recommend having a chat with Genene. Ben Kehoe
  • Genene taught me for 11 years, and I gained such a wide range of skills, not only in classical piano and theory, but she provided a creative outlet outside of my school studies, where I was able to learn jazz, drums, and compose my own songs. The lessons were engaging and challenging and I thoroughly enjoyed them! Genene tailors the lesson to suit the student, and she identifies and nurtures more specific interests within this. Highly highly recommend! Libby Chase
  • Adaptable lessons to suit each individual student. Clear and precise help with specific needs, with encouraging suggestions for improvement. Teaching is at the heart of her musicianship, not an add-on to passions elsewhere, so you get top-notch coaching. Highly recommended. (I am an older student returning to playing after a gap of several decades and so her flexible approach has been of great value to me.) Marilyn Taylor
  • I really enjoyed my piano lessons with Genene. She is a great teacher and incredibly encouraging and patient with a complete beginner adult! Fran Amaral
  • Genene is a terrific music teacher. She has taught one of our sons – now in his early teens – for a few years. He had blown a bit hot and cold about the piano but Genene really motivated him to persevere and he increasingly enjoys playing. He’s now preparing for Grade 2 after Genene’s teaching took him to Distinction at Grade 1 in 2020 and he was delighted. Genene teaches a wonderful mix of music styles in a fun but disciplined manner. Genene adapted to online teaching very successfully during lockdown and it’s become an almost normal way to learn! My wife and I really like and appreciate Genene’s teaching style and her wonderfully eclectic music tastes and she passes on that enthusiasm to her pupils. Cannot recommend her any higher! Paul Convery
  • Loved my lessons with Genene, so patient and encouraging (I went as a returning older learner). She is quick to recognise my strengths and areas which needed to be developed.. We even wrote a song! Thoroughly recommend. Kate Summerside
  • Having always wanted to learn to play music I found Genene and started lessons with her when I retired from working. I have found her to be a very creative, innovative and inspiring teacher. I recently took my grade 1 exam and passed with a distinction. I would never have imagined that I could have achieved this. It really is a comment on Genene’s teaching. I’m learning so much and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Genene, she’s great! Stephanie Wright
  • I get lovely cards from my students. Here is an example of a message…..’Thank you for your patience and good humour. Your skill and ability to make lessons enjoyable!’
