"I am in awe of your incomparable teaching, your encyclopedic knowledge of music, your artistry, and your deep and sincere love of teaching. You both have brought me to a level I never thought I could ever reach. And you did it by the secret you both possess: You teach through love. You love your students and you love music."

"You truly open the heart, mind, soul, hands, and body to the heart of playing. Heartfelt appreciation for your inspiration, knowledge and supportiveness."

"It is obvious that your teaching comes straight from the heart."

"Your open hearts, your commitment to your students, and your musical experience and passion for teaching have all had a tremendous impact on my playing and on my life."

"My whole 20 years of study has been nothing but pleasure. You have always cared about each student, and never allowed anyone to feel inadequate. Don't think of yourselves as mere piano or violin teachers. You are a lot more than that."

"Your friendship and personal warmth helped me and others get through some very difficult times in our lives."

"You genuinely love and care for other people, treating your students as family. I never once sensed any arrogance or superiority, but rather, humility and gentleness. I never left a lesson feeling discouraged or disappointed, but always left with a feeling that playing well was truly possible and that I could do it."

"Acceptance is one of your finest virtues. No matter how poorly prepared I was, you always had encouraging words."

"When you accept someone into your studio, you welcome them into your family. Through your guidance, I have grown as a person and as a teacher."

"Not only have you made me a better teacher, but you have brought the joy of teaching into my life."

"Your teaching is unique, and every piece I studied became special. Your deep love for beauty created magical experiences I will always cherish."
