What Students Are Saying

Carmela L

Advanced Theory and History student

Margaret is the best theory teacher I’ve ever had. Whether she’s building a complex chord progression or dissecting the life of a famous composer, she makes theory jump off the page and come alive! When I struggle with ideas she is incredibly patient and encouraging - she has an amazing ability to make complicated concepts easy to understand. Thank you, Margaret, for all your help!

You have been an awesome teacher for Maya – very patient and caring and we’ve really appreciated all the hard work you put into lessons and your adaptability and flexibility regarding re-scheduling and also exploring new songs that Maya wanted to try. Your students are lucky to have you!

Thomas Moore

Music, oh, how faint, how weak,
Language fades before thy spell!
Why should Feeling ever speak,
When thou canst breathe her soul so well?
Friendship’s balmy words may feign,
Love’s are even more false than they;
Oh! ’tis only music’s strain
Can sweetly soothe, and not betray.
