I AM Constantly Amazed

You are doing a great job with the boys. Music is something I don’t have a lot of knowledge with and I am constantly amazed with what the boys have been learning and how well they understand reading music. Thank you.

She Makes Piano Enjoyable

Miss Darlene is patient, kind, positive and fun. She is easy to work with. My kids never didn’t want to go to piano. She makes piano enjoyable and is skilled at playing the piano. 

She provided a special opportunity for my son to participate in the Multiple Piano Festival and put a lot of extra time and energy into helping him practice and get ready. My kids are progressing well with her teaching. I highly recommend her.

A Rare Jewel

Darlene Chilson is a rare jewel of a music teacher. With her many years of experience, she is successful in getting children playing the music they like, quickly and without the usual boredom and struggle so common in music lessons for children. 

She spends a significant amount of time outside of class organizing and finding just the right music for our two boys. Overall, our boys each enjoy their lessons and are eager to practice at home throughout the week. When they do have a piece they are struggling with, Darlene's love of piano shines through with her endless patience and encouragement.

Helped Me Find Joy and Fun

Darlene Chilson has been my piano teacher for the past  several years. I began taking lessons from Darlene at my retirement age after many years away from playing an instrument. 

Darlene has adapted her teaching to my needs and goals. Most of all she has helped me find joy and fun in playing for my own enjoyment. 

I look forward to my lesson time and the new discoveries we make along the way. I am happy to recommend Darlene as an accomplished piano teacher for children and adults.
