    1. *Update: Mrs. Desirae is a wonderful teacher. She is kind, patient, and very efficient with her teaching. Our daughter started in group piano lessons (and later switched to 1-1 lessons) from her 3 years to her 6 years. She was proud to play in front of her school as we’re missing this year’s winter recital. –Nathalie C., Parent (2019).
  5. We are so proud to be a Mindful Music family. We’ve been with Mrs. Desirae for close to 2 years now and our son loves attending music class with her. Our son was adopted internationally and has Down Syndrome. Mrs. Desirae has been wonderfully patient, kind and understanding as we’ve navigated changes and challenges over this course of time. Class started as just something for him to do because he needed exercise and loves music. This year we decided to have him participate in the Winter Recital and we could not be more proud of him. –Hope C., Parent (2019).

  18. Desirae is a wonderful piano instructor and taught my daughter privately off and on for years! In addition, I have had the opportunity to work alongside her on several occasions, and have been amazed at her instant connection with children of all ages.

I was amazed at her ability to not only teach and organize, but to cast and inspire 250 children ranging in age from kindergarten to 8th grade! She is not only a talented pianist, but a gifted teacher as well! I highly recommend her. –Juliana S., Parent (2016)
