My 8 year old son started piano lessons with Manishka at the beginning of last year (2018). Manishka is a wonderful teacher for children and for adults, she individualizes her approach for each student. Manishka is kind but firm; patient but has expectations. My son had taken two years of piano lessons prior to his year with Manishka but had not learnt to read music or play pieces. Under Manishka’s tutelage however, I would say he has learnt a few pieces and played beautifully and with confidence at his recital. I was deeply pleased with my sons progress over the last year and highly recommend Manishka as a teacher.
