Excellent teachers and convenient location. We have worked with Michele and Abby for the last 3 years and it has been a great experience for my 2 children (ages 10,12) -Lisa Prince


Our son has such a great time at his piano lessons, and he has really progressed over the past few years! I appreciate the approach this studio takes to play songs that he's excited to learn. Ms. Michele also creates a welcoming music community with fun recitals that celebrate the students. -Amy Rosenband


For busy families that have to be judicious about the overwhelming varieties of kids' activities subscriptions, DAMA was a winning choice. I like the fact that our son is so engaged with the content of the classes. My proofpoint is that he doesn't need too much prodding to practice after class and looks forward to his weekly sessions. That's in no small measure due to the positive affirmation system and good vibes setup by Ms. Michele at the Academy. A for effort and A for results!  -Vincent Kwong


My kids love working with Michele. She offers a variety of techniques to teach kids and get them excited about music. -Anna Fensler

Michele is the most thoughtful, patient music teacher you can imagine. She has a true gift for working with children, she loves what she does, and it shows. Recitals have always been fun and a positive experience for the kids. We would recommend DAMA to anyone interested in learning music. -Emily Martorano

DAMA is a wonderful caring atmosphere. They make my daughter feel comfortable to step outside her comfort zone and find her voice. -Amber Weiser

My boys have done almost five years of piano with Michele. It has been a great experience - she has been wonderful adjusting to their varying interests and keeping them engaged. I love the recitals - so inclusive and thoughtful. She makes it so fun and low pressure for kids who haven't done it before! -Lisa Jasper

We are a relatively new family to DAMA, but each time he has finished his lesson, my 11 year old son tells me that "playing piano makes him feel good inside." That makes me so happy! -Stephanie Campbell

Absolutely love this music studio! Michele (owner) is brilliant at teaching music to children. She knows how to motivate and work with them using her own system of teaching. It's the most effective and efficient style we've seen- and we come from a family of musicians. We have also met Abby and she seems really kind and great as well. -Amanda Hamm

We love DAMA - Michele is incredibly talented but more so, she is a kind, patient and effective teacher. Highly recommend DAMA! -Lauren Johnson

I highly recommend DAMA. My son started 18 months ago and he loves to go there. His voice teacher is amazing and it is a very professional studio. They know how to make it fun for all ages. -Ceclia Golan

My two sons have had piano lessons with Michele and other teachers at the studio since 2018. Michele makes the experience fun and motivating. Both my boys have developed a genuine love of music while at DAMA. The studio is well run and organized with a warm and welcoming environment. I highly recommend DAMA for anyone looking to develop their musical skills! -Jennifer Reed

I have two boys who have learned to play piano, and it has been the most lovely experience. I am amazed at how my children have grown as musicians. I know their teacher (and owner, Michele) is knowledgeable, relatable, patient, and motivating. We plan on continuing our musical path for many, many years at DAMA!

-Amanda Hoffman

Our child looks forward to voice lessons every week! Ms. Abby is so positive, encouraging, and patient. We feel very fortunate to call DAMA our musical home! -Liz Bachman

We love Ms Michele & DAMA! My girls have taken lessons with her off and on for the past 5 years and we couldn’t be more pleased with the level of instruction and the kindness and fun that Ms Michele provides for her students. My kids are excited to come to piano lessons and their skills have improved tremendously over the past few years at DAMA! -Kinsey Helffenstein

I highly recommend DAMA for all your music education and training needs! Whether you’re an absolute beginner or already advanced, the teachers (Michele in particular, who is a classically trained pianist with over 40 years of experience) tailor your lessons to maximize your learning efficiency. Very transparent and frequent communication, and you can tell Michele really cares about the learning progress of each and every student! She holds recitals twice a year to also train students in performing in front of an audience. Wish I would have started here sooner, and my kids will definitely take lessons from DAMA, as well.

-Adam Ellis

Miss Michele is an amazing teacher! She makes kids feel loved and pushes them to explore new types of music. -Catherine Cole

Wonderful! Abby come to our house every Wednesday and is the best! Love the monthly newsletter, announcements, and my daughter won a cash prize for practicing! Great group! -Aaron Grant

My boys have been going to DMA for the past five years. Michele is incredibly patient, encouraging, and kind. My boys love going to lessons and they have become great pianists. -Sarah Lintzenich

Michele at DAMA is so wonderful. My 5 year old son takes piano lessons with her, and also participated in her Musical Theater Workshop. Michele is patient, engaging and fun, and the children adore her. We have loved our experience with DAMA and would recommend her to anyone! -Elizabeth Crofoot
