    Comment:  I would like to recommend Jean Pugni as a piano teacher. She has been teaching my daughter for five years, since my daughter was five. She also teaches my husband and myself. With each of us she is kind, patient, fun, funny and engaged. She comes to our place to teach us and usually has a mountain of music in all different styles. Right now my daughter is working on Bach, Nirvana, and Journey. Needless to say, Jean’s flexibility really help to keep my daughter interested and enthusiastic about her lessons. Not only have we all improved a lot, but I can tell from the twice-yearly recitals that her other students are also getting better and better. Try a lesson - I think you’ll be really happy.

    Comment:  A ‘shout out’ to recommend Jean Pugni who offers private lessons for piano & guitar in your home. I have known Jean for ten years, and have referred her to many friends over the years, people who were looking for a patient, caring piano teacher. While she has given lessons to my daughter (who loved her), we ended up switching to sax for awhile so I speak most recently to the strides I've seen made by those students that I personally know - longstanding family friends. I find her approach to be very individualized, honing in on what interests the student (classical, blues, composition, etc.). She has what I would describe as "meet them where they’re at approach” - not pushy but ultimately tries to instill some level of discipline. She also does band coaching for rock, jazz, blues, and arranges recitals twice a year. Beyond this, Jean and I have enjoyed many piano collaborations together, and I can speak to her easy-going nature.
