What some happy piano students say:  

Our family has been with Nilou for 15 years. All three of our children have been taught by her and I just started lessons with her myself! We are so grateful for her kindness and expertise through the years. She truly loves teaching piano and her students and it shows.  We love her like family and highly recommend her.

My son began piano lessons with Nilou at the age of four and he has been playing for a little over four years now. Nilou is always patient and encouraging while she’s teaching him. She is immeasurably gifted with her ability to recognize her students strengths and help them develop and fine tune their individual talent. Nilou is sincerely dedicated to her students and she strives to support them as they grow musically. Additionally she has cultivated an appreciation for piano that extends beyond my son, to most of my family. It has been an absolute joy watching my son’s progress over the years.
