Testimonial: 'Not only was she a gifted and knowledgeable teacher - she also instilled in him a love for the music - guiding and allowing him to choose pieces that interested him as well as challenged him. As a result, he never needed to be told to practice - in fact he spent as much time as possible at the piano developing a love for both classical and jazz repertoire. Under Elenye's tutelage, he was a finalist in the Boston Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition giving him the opportunity to play on the Symphony Hall stage, and he had many opportunities as an accompanist and collaborative pianist for his high school choirs and soloists earning him his high school's Chopin Award. ... Her guidance helped him prepare for college auditions as a piano performance major and he was offered the highest merit scholarships available from three different institutions.' - Janet L, parent
