I am a teacher by profession and I find Simone Parker to be an amazing and gifted teacher. Not only is she accomplished on the piano and strings, she knows how to teach children. She is patient yet firm, can see when a child is struggling and redirects them. She knows when a child needs a little push to overcome an obstacle. I highly recommend her!

My son Cole loves piano and Simone has been a gem...... Thanks,

Ms. Simone has been teaching my daughter, Zee, for nearly a year. Zee has flourished under her instruction. Simone adjusts her teaching approach to suit each child's personality and learning methods. She is truly one of the best teachers I have ever encountered. We are so thankful to have found her!

Mrs. Parker is a gifted teacher who sincerely cares for her students and their well being. She is constantly trying new techniques and never gives up on her students. I cannot say enough about how wonderful she is or even begin to describe how important she is to our family.

Ms. Parker is an excellent teacher! My children have gotten a lot out of their time in her orchestra. She has a teaching style that is fun yet challenging, precise but never intimidating. She has shown my kids to love to play and I love to listen.

What students are saying...
My appreciation for all that you do grows weekly, as I see your hard work, time and effort in every email, handout and lesson. I greatly admire you as a musician and as a person!
You have inspired me to be a great violinist!
Thank you for being a wonderful piano teacher that always brings out the best of my skills. I will always remember all the things you have taught me over the years.
Thank you for being such an amazing teacher and believing in your students every step of the way!
Thank you for being one of the best music teachers, if not the best music teacher, I've ever had. I've learned so much from you, and I really appreciate your patience and kindness.
Mrs. Parker is a fine teacher and knowledgeable. She is also very passionate and enthusiastic about teaching. ... I loved this course! I think it is extremely difficult to make theory a fun course for students, but Professor Parker was able to do so. I've learned so much, and the way she taught us will allow the information to percolate and be retained throughout our life. She is one of the best instructors I've had throughout my four years of schooling. I'm so sad I'm graduating because I wish I could take more classes taught by her!
~ College Students - from Intro to Theory Course

Thank you so much for being my piano and violin teacher! I am so happy about how much I have been improving in both instruments with your help.
Dear Mrs. Parker, thank you for being an amazing violin teacher this year! I am looking forward to next semester.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to play in my orchestra. I will miss it!
I had a blast learning and advancing in music
You give me hope, you give me experience, you give me inspiration, you put music in my heart. You are the best! Thank you for teaching me.
Thank you for challenging me in piano and for being a great teacher. Your challenges are hard but always end up with me learning something new which helps me in harder pieces.
Thank you for your inspiration and encouragement. You have given us the confidence to learn to read music and to "attack" the bass clef. With knowing a few basics, we feel we can really play music and entertain ourselves. Thank you for all your patience with us!
