Student and Parent Testimonials
"Dr. Federle was recommended to us by our prior piano instructor as she needed to take a leave of absence from teaching. My daughter who is 15 and has been playing for many years started with Dr. Federle in Aug. 2011. Dr. Federle was very friendly and pleasant and made my daughter feel right at home. She also understood the other demands of a high school student and was sensitive about her school commitments. My daughter learned a great deal from Dr. Federle. She motivated her without pushing to the point of her feeling stressed, which is a very delicate balance when you are in high school. Dr. Federle is extremely talented and possess a great deal of knowledge and experience about playing the piano. Winston-Salem is very lucky to have her living in our community. She would be a wonderful teacher to anyone."

"Dr. Federle has taught piano to my daughter, Kayleah, since September, 2010. Kayleah was with another piano teacher but we were both not happy with her progression and teaching style. Dr. Federle was recommended and we couldn't be happier! Kayleah loves Dr. Federle'steaching style and she makes learning the piano so much fun! Dr. Federle uses a variety of techniques to make sure her students are progressing at their own level and keeps them motivated to practice. Kayleah practices every day and has not once complained about having to do this which is unusual for an 8 year old! I am very pleased with Kayleah's progress and she can play with both hands and is reading music quite well only after 4 months of teaching from Dr. Federle. I would highly recommend Dr. Federle to anyone who would like to begin piano lessons for themselves or their children. Her credentials are impeccable and she is a delight to watch interacting with Kayleah as she teaches. Kayleah is not only learning how to play the piano but the music theory as well in such a fun way."

"As an adult learner, I count myself very fortunate to have found Dr. Federle as an instructor. Though I had played other musical instruments when young, I had never had the opportunity to study piano and was apprehensive, but I need not have been so with Dr. Federle. She is crystal clear in her lessons, sensitive to the needs of learners at different stages, and incredibly patient; moreover, she listened to what I as an individual wanted to learn and readily adapted to my desire to delve more music theory than many students wish. As a university professor myself, I especially appreciated her understanding of teaching methodology, personal interest, and enthusiasm for teaching piano. Her own talent at performance goes without saying to anyone who has had the good fortune to hear her perform and, I am sure, serves as an inspiration to all of her students. I highly recommend her for students of all ages."
