“Guzel is an amazing Piano teacher! She always made my son Albert feel comfortable going to her studio. I highly recommend her, best piano teacher I have ever dealt with!”

“Mrs Guzel, I do not say what I don’t mean. Autistic children can sometimes have low patience and bad concentration. I tell everyone my son is blessed to have you. His concentration improved. His memory improved. His patience improved. So thank you for sticking with us! We sincerely appreciate you.”
