Rhiannon (pictured) has been teaching our daughter Phoebe the piano for a couple of years now. She started when Phoebe was six and a very shy little girl. But within a few weeks of lessons, Phoebe had really warmed to her and began treating her as a friend. Maybe that was because Rhiannon always seemed light hearted and easy to get along with. Now Phoebe is nine and watching her play some of her favourite pieces, just for fun and not because its part of her practise (!), hearing the notes dance through the house as the rest of the family go about their business, lifts my spirits every time. I would recommend Rhiannon to anyone who wants their child to learn the piano without the stern, overly serious approach that I remember from my days learning my scales and arpeggios!
