STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
"Thank you so much for giving me the gift of music.  I honestly don't know where I'd be without you today.  You have taught me more than just piano and I will be forever grateful to you.  Thank you for your unending love and support." -- Sadie H., piano student for 10 years, and college music scholarship awardee.

"Thank you for instilling in me a love of piano and music in general.  It changed my life."  
-- Maria H., piano student for eight years.

 

"It has been such a pleasure taking piano with you all these years. I have learned a lot and have really enjoyed myself. I am so happy I stuck with it all the way through. Thank you for always being so understanding and flexible. That made it so much easier to keep going....Thank you so much for helping to prepare me for music studies in college. I feel much more confident now, and I actually enjoyed learning all that theory."

 -- Emma H., piano student for nine years.

 
 
 
"After defending my dissertation, I seriously thought about what I really want to do in life. I have always wanted to play the piano, but considered myself musically challenged. So, the first question that I asked Vicky was: Would you agree to teach a middle-aged absolute beginner who is possibly tone-deaf? I failed to mention (or didn't know it at the time) that I have difficulties following instructions and cannot do assignments in chronological order.

Taking lessons and getting to know Vicky is one of the best aspects in my Minnesotan life. I realized that learning a new skill requires a lot of repetition and this has made me more tolerant as a teacher (I teach German and Norwegian.) Vicky has been infinitely patient and has guided my progress with consideration for the most important thing - the joy of learning." 
-- Arsena L., adult student for 8 years
 
 
Parents' COMMENTS:

"By our calculations, we've been with you for 16-17 years of piano lessons!  All three of our children have benefited from your love of music and children and your talent in teaching.  Thank you for sharing these gifts with our children. You have the music in you, and helped us to find ours as well."

                                                     -Ellie B. 

"Several neighbors that I trust shared that their children take piano lessons with Vicky Mackerman on Eustis Street in Lauderdale. She has a great reputation so we decided to give it a try. We ended up finding a "starter piano" on Craiglist and signed our six year old son up for weekly 30 minute lessons with Ms. Mackerman. It has been a great experience. She is wonderful with my young son and he has a learned a lot in a short amount of time... She teaches flute too."

                                                      -Karen T.

"You were such a great teacher for (my son), and I really appreciate the work you did with him."

                                                     -Kathryn F.

"I appreciate how much energy and thought you put into your recitals - they are very special, for the kids and for us.  Not to mention all the time spent getting ready for them."

                                                     -Julie K. R.
 
"(Vicky) is an incredible teacher, nurturing and pushing all in equal parts.  (She) knows what it takes to make students want to learn, how to push them so they see rewards they never knew they had and always, yes always, with a sense of humor."
                                                    -Judy E. 
 
"All three of our children have taken lessons from Vicky, starting in the second grade.
We have now been with her more than 10 years!  Vicky is always good with them, letting them set the pace but encouraging and challenging them to do their best.  They learned about music, piano, study skills, and about themselves.  We would recommend Vicky Mackerman to anyone of any age as a music instructor."
                                                   
                                                    -Ellie B. and Dale H.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:

"As a "professional in the field" I can also highly recommend Vicky Mackerman.  She has a graduate degree in piano performance, a wide ranging repertoire, works very well with all ages, adapts well to different learning styles. And she is enjoyable personally. Over
the years I have sent many people to her, and had nothing but very good reports.

She's located in Lauderdale."
