Erika is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. She can shares her passion for music by providing excellent instruction and fun which is so important with young students. My daughter started her lessons when she was 6 years old. Erika offered a personalised approach to improve her playing. She is always very positive and encouraging to Alexandra.

My 9 year old daughter, Sunisa stated piano lessons with Erika in January 2018 and has since learned to play scales, numerous pieces and can read music. With the skills she has learned from Erika, Sunisa has written a song which is very catchy and we at home cannot stop singing or humming it around the house.
Erika is more than a music teacher to Sunisa; she has become a friend. Erika has built a wonderful relationship with Sunisa and has really earned her trust. Sunisa talks to Erika about everyday life when she is at her piano lessons and often comes out a really happy, relaxed child. It is also great, as a parent, to have useful feedback and I get this from Erika at the end of every lesson. Erika is honest and helpful with her feedback, often giving advice on how to help Sunisa develop her skills.
What is obvious to me is that Erika's first priority is her student and not the money. She genuinely cares for her students and her passion shows with the feedback I get from her and through Sunisa's own piano playing. I cannot give enough praise to Erika and have recommended her to other parents at Sunisa's school. I would really suggest you give her first free trial lesson a go!

Our 8 year old daughter has been learning to play the piano with Erika for about 6 months. Our daughter was a bit shy at first but Erika made her feel relaxed very quickly. We've been been really impressed how much she has learnt in such a short period of time and she even enjoys practising! Erika recently arranged a little concert for her pupils which was very relaxed and a great confidence builder for the children.
I would highly recommend piano lessons with Erika.
