Thank you always for your enthusiasm in teaching the kids the beautiful art! I really appreciate it and we learn and get inspired a lot every time.
From Pamela, 2013
Please allow me to express our gratitude for you in the meantime. We
are thrilled to see Angelina progressing every day. We greatly
appreciate that you ask nothing less than perfect with kindness and
caring. It is truly magical, thank you so much!
Letter from Douglas, 2013
To Mrs. Grozman,
The reason why I'm sending an email, instead of giving you a phone call or meeting you in person, is so that I have time to think all my thoughts through and make sure what I say is truly what I want to say.
That being said, thank you so much for the years we have spent together. You've taught me innumerable things about piano and music that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I owe a great deal to you for all the time and effort you've invested to teaching me, and you've helped me mature both with regard to music and as a person. Without a doubt, I wouldn't be where I am today without your help...........I want you to know that the skills you've taught me are being put to good use.
Again, thank you for everything. It's hard to say goodbye after all these years...

Your student did a great job, he played that piece from his heart.
Message from Fumiko Rockower
Thank you so much for the lessons for Naomi and Jacob today. I was deeply impressed with how you teach with such focus in artistic expression. I understand completely how your students play the way they do. I wish I had a teacher like you when I was growing up! I feel like I was missing the whole point!

I am really grateful to you for teaching Freddy with his small hands and with high expectations.
I have more than several experiences with music teachers in the past and you are the best teacher for Freddy.

Message from Amy Zeng
I thought about our conversation at the last lesson for quite awhile. Before I go on, I'd like to say that you've been such a wonderful teacher and mentor. I always look forward to our lessons together because you always manage to inspire me to practice harder with your kind words of encouragement and your gentle guidance. You have motivated me for such a long time to keep practicing, even when I was discouraged and I hadn't won any competitions for two consecutive years. If it weren't for your patience and dedication, I would have quit piano long time ago. I will always appreciate the time and effort you put into teaching me and will remember the time we spent together with great affection........

Message from Sondra Clark
How fabulous! ... I meant to write you right after the recital and thank you for your wonderful students!? I also wanted to give Alice and Anna special credit for playing so well While Sharing a Single Bench! That goes beyond musical talent! :)
And your younger students, Catherine and Miranda, were just breath-taking. All of your students
should be showcased in more concerts in this area -- you produce absolutely superb musicians!
So again, thanks -- I'm always so pleased to hear my music played by your students!

Bless you, Lena,
I'd love to come to your recital May 1st. And Gordon would, too -- he
liked your recital last year so much!
I just can't thank you enough for the joy you give me!
Comment from Anna Boonyanit April, 2010
Dear Mrs. Lena,
Thank you for helping me win the first place in the MTAC solo competition. Without you, I would not have won. It means so much to me. Thank you very much...
I got a notice from Pacific Musical Society that I made the Finals. Thank you for being such a wonderful piano teacher and making all my dreams come true! I think
you are an amazing teacher, and I'm so glad you put so much effort into polishing my Chopin piece. See you tomorrow!
Thank you for your kind letter, it really makes me have a warm and happy heart! You are a great, helpful, patient, and kind piano teacher. I really want to be a piano teacher and pianist when I grow up.
Words cannot express our sincere thankfulness to your tremendous help in making Andrew successful in his recent competitions. We always appreciate your passionate teaching.
A million thanks,
