“We are so thrilled to have found a wonderful music teacher!“

“Miss Lenore is by far one of the best music teachers we have had.  She didn’t just teach my kids how to play instruments but rather passed on her love and passion for music. She will forever be a part of our lives. We are very grateful to her and highly recommend her.

My three youngest children have taken Ms. Lenore's Orff class and they loved it!   The class is so much fun and interactive. Along with playing many different kinds of instruments, they are constantly singing and moving their bodies to new rhythms.  She even taught them to write music as young as 7 years old.  Orff class was a great foundation before starting other instruments like guitar and violin.  My two youngest daughters are currently in their 3rd year of Orff classes with Ms. Lenore and one of them will now start violin, the other will start piano with Ms. Lenore.”

“We absolutely love our piano teacher - Emma Thompson!”

“My daughter has been taking private piano lessons with Emma for the past two and a half years.  

When our family moved to San Diego area from Pennsylvania in the beginning of 2017, I was looking for a quality piano teacher for her to continue her lessons, we were very fortunate to have found Emma.  

She is passionate about teaching and attentive to my daughter’s unique learning style.  Emma is extremely patient and supportive to our daughter, whose skills have grown and developed nicely, thanks to Emma’s tireless efforts.  

We could not ask for a better piano teacher for our child, and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dedicated and gifted piano teacher for their children in North County!”

“I am amazed at how quickly my daughter's skills have developed.“

“I have two children enrolled at the Music Studio of Lenore Johnson.   My oldest daughter, now age 15, started taking piano 9 years ago with Ms. Lenore and also participated when she was younger, in the Orff group music program.  My daughter took on the role of  "teacher assistant" for Orff  Music Camp one summer, helping Ms. Lenore with children ages 5-8. 

My daughter is currently taking a 45-min piano lesson as well as a 30-min shared vocal lesson with another student and her next performance will be singing and playing "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.   I am amazed at how quickly my daughter's skills have developed.

My son started piano lessons  at age six with Ms. Lenore and is currently attending a 30-min piano lesson and has been enrolled in the 1-hour Orff group music class for his 5th year in a row.   I  can see how the Orff training has helped develop his piano playing.   Both my children love music and we certainly love listening to them!”

“My daughter has fallen in love with playing the piano.”

“Emma is an amazing teacher! My 11 year old has taken piano lessons with her for a little over a year now. My daughter has fallen in love with playing the piano. Emma is not only talented at playing but shares her passion through her teaching. Her vast knowledge of the fundamentals of music, musical genres, technique and learning styles are the perfect formula for setting up your child for success. She is very personable, kind and encouraging, which is crucial for children of all ages at all levels of playing. She has not only engaged my daughter but has taught her discipline and how hard work pays off. Emma has instilled a joy of music and joy of learning and playing piano pieces. She is one of a kind!”
