"My son made more progress in his first term with Alanna than he had done in over two years of piano lessons previously. She has the rare knack of teaching great technique while making learning rewarding and fun."
“Learning the piano with Alanna is really relaxed, if you want to take grade exams you can, but what's really nice is you can also learn purely for enjoyment . The concerts are an opportunity to play in front of others and if you do take exams, they are a valuable experience to help prepare for playing pieces formally.”
"Alanna has taught my 12 year old son for the last 5 years and has been exceptionally patient with him. My 15 year old daughter was so taken with Alanna that she then asked for piano lessons again having had a rather rocky experience with piano lessons at school; she has come along in leaps and bounds and is always keen to practise for Alanna. Alanna is a natural teacher and her gentle nature and enthusiasm inspire her pupils. I recommend her without reservation."
“I love Alanna's lessons. They are great fun but hard work. When I look back on how much I have learnt, it really makes me appreciate her patience in teaching me the instrument that I love and that has grown to be a huge part of my life."
"Alanna makes me want to practise because I'd hate to feel that I hadn't put as much effort into my lessons as Alanna does. I look forward to each lesson and enjoy learning because of Alanna's kindness."
“My daughter came to Alanna as a complete beginner and now several years later she plays to a high standard and with enthusiasm thanks to Alanna’s kind and sensitive approach to teaching.”
"Alanna has been teaching my 4 children aged 15, 13, 10 and 6 over the past 10 years. She is caring, patient and really dedicated to inspire the love and joy of making music in children. My children are working with different abilities and dispositions which is a testament to Alanna's talent in bringing out the best out of every individual child. I highly recommend her!"
"My daughter has been learning from Alanna for 5 years. Alanna is very calm and focuses on learning the correct technique making playing piano an enjoyable experience. My daughter sat her Grade 5 two weeks ago and achieved a Merit, thanks to Alanna"
