My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Janice for a few months and her confidence had really increased. Janice is a very competent teacher and can definitely connect with the younger kids. I really appreciated her efforts through COVID and is always flexible..

My son is 8 and started piano lessons with Duncan 3 weeks ago, not only has he learned and begun to master the basics, he looks forward to his lessons each week! I highly recommend Duncan Cooper and the rest of the instructors at Pinnacle Music School.
