Read what others have to say about their private study experience.
"Natasha has provided our son with piano lessons for the past 4-5 years. She has been a complete inspiration. His progress far exceeds our expectations; frankly we are in awe of how much he has learned. He had no prior experience and Natasha taught him to read music, all the foundations, scales etc. He is now performing at a NYSSMA Level 6. Natasha has fostered his love of music; she is patient, professional and warm. She challenges our son without pressuring him. We are forever very grateful that Natasha has shared her incredible talent and ability with our son and know that he will play forever because of her."
"Dr. Stollmack instructs my 6 year old son in piano, and we feel so lucky to have found her! She is patient, kind, and personable, and my son considers her a friend, which motivates him to continue playing. She always considers his unique needs and recommends curriculum that will gently challenge him, allowing him to continuously improve without becoming frustrated. She is very organized. She consistently documents everything he works on so that he is clear on what he has accomplished and what to work on next, which is so helpful for his age. She listens to us too, as parents, to understand our goals for our child. It is clear that she really cares about her students and takes great pride in what she does. We are very thankful for her!"

"Dr. Stollmack has been a phenomenal instructor since the day we began lessons. She quickly adapted to the pandemic landscape, and currently provides top instruction to my children. Her encouragement to believe in my children's abilities has boosted their confidence around the house and in their social lives. She mixes fun, patience, and an unyielding standard for growth to curate individual lessons that promote our children's strengths and challenges their weaknesses. I recommend Dr. Stollmack with extreme enthusiasm to any parent that wants to explore piano lessons or to improve their child's current playing ability."
Dr. Stollmack is such a wonderful instructor! My daughter's love for piano grows every lesson as she continues to learn from Dr. S! She is patient, clear, and understands the importance of goals and proper motivation. My 5 year old is super happy!

"Dr. Stollmack is a wonderful piano teacher. She is very professional and compassionate in her field. My son loves playing piano mostly because of Dr. Stollmack’s way of teaching the music and he is looking forward to seeing her every Sunday. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Stollmack enough. Thank you so much for your hard work!"
"We are so fortunate to have Dr. Stollmack as our daughter’s piano teacher. Our daughter was very reluctant to perform in front of others but thanks to Dr. Stollmack’s gentle encouragement and infectious enthusiasm, our daughter conquered her fears, is self-motivated to practice piano, and looks forward to her lessons every week. (If only I had someone like Dr. Stollmack as my own piano teacher, I might not have quit piano many moons ago!)"

"Natasha has been such a fantastic piano teacher the last year for three of my kids! They all loved Natasha and learned so much from her. They progressed so much in the last year, becoming much better piano players while still having fun. I highly recommend Natasha as a piano teacher!"
