Testimonial by Kevin B.
I can't recommend Cincinnati School of Music enough! If the Backers excel at any one thing (and it's hard to choose just one!) it would be the ability to motivate their students to succeed and progress - and they do this by fostering a deep love for music and creativity!
Testimonial by Harry L.
My daughter played piano for a few years before switching to Anna Backer last year when she was eight, we are happy Anna is now her teacher. My daughter became much more interested in playing piano after learning from Anna. Practicing is no longer a daily routine, she just loves and enjoys playing the piano now.
Testimonial by Dena M.
We couldn't be more pleased with the piano lessons from the Cincinnati School of Music. Joe Backer is patient and helpful with our 6 year old, who doesn't have a real long attention span. With our 12 year old, Joe has been able to challenge him in a nurturing way. We are all in awe of Joe's talent as a musician and this is very motivating for our children. I would recommend Cincinnati School of Music to everyone I know!
