I am an adult piano student who takes lessons from Sara Toudouze. She is an absolutely outstanding teacher and pianist who is completely dedicated to her students and their advancement, regardless of age or ability. She teaches with superior knowledge, enthusiasm, humor, a positive "you can do it" attitude, and a huge amount of patience and understanding, creating a wonderful and exciting musical environment that makes you want to learn. Returning to lessons after many years, I was apprehensive. But she began with solid theory, introduced me to a wide range of composers, wrote out detailed practice sheets during each lesson, and encouraged and challenged me to excel. I
now play pieces I would have never thought possible. Her adult soiree recitals have given me a goal to work toward and have led to a great friendship and camaraderie among the adult piano students and Sara. She is simply an amazing teacher.
