"a polished teacher"--First and foremost, Heather Hall set the groundwork for the progression of the musical skill set of the student throughout lessons. In my case, and as I observed of other students working with her, she knew exactly how to explain the concepts to me in a way that I comprehended which enabled me to approach the piece and technique with confidence. She also encouraged me to fully learn through self-discovery by providing me the tools and resources to practice and learn outside of lessons.

I wanted to take piano lessons my whole life, and I was finally able to while I was attending Saint Vincent College. I am glad I did. My description of Heather Hall's abilities and skills begins first of all with her solid musicality, her own superb competency as a pianist, and her obvious delight in teaching. She has a huge amount of personal talent and a vast accumulation of music knowledge; but equally important is her capacity for coaching. I know firsthand how well she directs, instructs, inspires, and motivates a student. Heather Hall was very easy to work with and was never intimidating. She was always patient and encouraging, yet she pushed her students to make improvements. Heather is an excellent teacher, and I would recommend her to anyone seeking musical studies.

I want to express my highest regards and my strongest recommendation for Heather Hall as a piano and voice teacher. In the five years that we knew her, she planted the seed as well as developed our family's involvement in church music, gave piano lessons to our children as well as many others in our area, and left a 'spirit' of joyful music to all who knew her.

Heather Hall was an excellent piano teacher for me. She was able to adequately diagnose my piano performance weaknesses and assigned specific exercises to overcome these difficulties. She provided me with a warm and nurturing environment, and my confidence in my piano skills grew immensely. Additionally, Heather served as a coach for me and helped me learn and shape my vocal music. I really enjoyed my lessons and coachings with her, and the music skills I developed have greatly helped me as I pursue my masters in vocal performance. Heather is an excellent teacher and person and I would recommend her to anyone seeking musical studies.

Heather was an excellent teacher and a true professional. I took piano lessons from her during college even while focused on my other studies. Heather's instruction was effective, enjoyable and motivating. I learned a great deal from her, even in the limited time I spent with her. Heather was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her as a teacher.
