What I really like about Clare is that she is a very nice teacher: calm, explains well and makes me like piano. Because of Clare I passed my exam in 6 months instead of a year. I can really recommend Clare as a brilliant teacher.

I like playing the piano because it is fun and enjoyable. I like playing music, it is a good past-time and helps with music in school. Piano is challenging and good for my brain.
