She's wonderful and super nice-- she gives good technical advice but minimal advice on interpretation of the music itself. She shows you ways to figure out what you want to do with the piece. She never criticizes, but she'll point out if you're doing something she disagrees with and give you suggestions on how to improve. She doesn't push you though, so it's up to you to be motivated to practice and improve.

Incredibly sweet, nice woman, but not a great teacher. She is always running behind schedule. She teaches good practice techniques, but is very nitpicky and won't let you finish playing a piece until its perfect, which can be an absurdly long time.
