“[My MacPhail instructor] is truly a gifted educator whose keen insights and sympathetic understanding of his students are simply inspiring.  The opportunity to study the piano as an adult with [my teacher] at MacPhail has meant a great deal to me, and I especially appreciate [his] innovative solution to my scheduling difficulty and his continued encouragement…” – Dr. Phuong N., Rochester, MN

“I take online piano with Jeremy Hanson. It is a major part of my life as I work from home and travel for work quite a bit. The flexibility of having an online lesson from multiple cities is a great option. We have had very little problems using Skype, and I highly recommend this option to anyone wanting to take lessons from teachers at MacPhail!” – Karen Olson
