"My six year old has regained her enthusiasm for the piano following her lessons with Jorge. She looks forward to her lessons and is always excited on the day. My daughter is very energetic and her previous teacher found it difficult to engage.
I was lucky to find Summit School of Music and Don was extremely helpful and understanding and was able to accommodate my daughter's needs. Jorge is a great teacher and is able to keep my daughter engaged throughout the lesson by using various techniques. The methods of teaching used have made it easy for her to learn the notes and she is becoming increasingly confident in both reading and playing the piano. I look forward to see her progress and I am very grateful to Summit School of Music."NajlaS (via Yell)
"Donnette is a great teacher and its thanks to her that our son passed his audition to get into a top london theatre school. She knows her stuff and how to get the best out of children. She is also friendly and always happy.
I'd recommend her to anyone whether your a beginner or experienced as she is a great vocal coach. She gave our children the confidence they needed.
They've come along far since beginning with Donnette.Highly recommended!"Natasha G (via Netmums)
"My daughter, then aged 5, had piano lessons with Donnette for just under one year. In that time she learnt to read the music up to her 10 point scale (both left and right hand) and play quite confidently with both hands. My daughter really enjoyed her half hour lessons, which was just about the right time for that age.
Donnette was a lovely teacher who made my daughter feel comfortable playing and was able to keep her engaged throughout the lessons, not only through playing, but through interactive games and flash cards.
Would highly recommend her services."Charlene H (via Netmums)
"I like piano lessons because it's fun and a better experience.
And my teacher she very good, her name Donnette, she very caring and if you have a incident such as you're crying she will help you and cancel the piano lesson.
So that why I wrote this, I hope you enjoy reading it."Asher, age 9.

Best music teacher ever: Don"Ariele
Hannah is a great piano teacher! We are very lucky to have her!
She is very punctual, trustworthy, professional and most importantly she is fab with my children and they both love her. She has a lovely encouraging manner about her without being too pushy and is extremely patient.
My son is preparing for his grade 2 and my daughter is preparing for her grade 1. They have both progressed amazingly well with Hannah and love spending time with her.
I would highly recommend Hannah to anyone wanting to learn the Piano.Samantha Armstrong
Jorge is a child-friendly teacher who has developed a good rapport with my son at a short space of time.
He understands and establishes quickly what needs to be done and how to implement that to improve the performance. Jorge has lots of patience and tries out different methods to attain the target.
My son is quite happy in learning to play the Piano with Jorge.Geetha Jaokar
"If you've noticed other reviews for Don, chances are, there's a good reason why. For starters, she is courteous and truly a professional at her craft. My children are mesmerized by her teaching tactics, great enthusiasm, and passion for music.
Prior to meeting her, my kids took piano lessons with another teacher, who to be honest, didn't do much for them in the 8 months that they had tuition. Looking for a solution, I logged onto Netmums to begin the search for another teacher. Out of the many people that I contacted by phone and/or email, Don's response was overly efficient. During an initial meeting & taster lesson with my kids, Don quickly assessed their needs. To make a long story short, it has been a year since we met and my kids have progressed on every level. I would highly attribute their growth to the fact that Don encourages parental involvement and is great in communicating her expectations for students.
In sum, I highly recommend Donnette for her music services...you will not be disappointed!"Patricia K (via Netmums)
