Ms. Dalarna is an excellent pianist and teacher.
Our daughter has been learning with her for 3 years now and enjoys her lessons immensely and has made wonderful progress.
Dalarna supports the children in their learning at every step and ensures that the children develop an in depth understanding of all aspects of piano playing.
Dalarna skillfully adjusts the pace of the lesson, the choice of music pieces and the method of teaching, in line with the ability and interest of the child.
I highly recommend Ms. Dalarna and Pianoles Almere.

It’s not easy to find a good piano teacher, but we were lucky enough to find a great piano teacher for our daughter.
Our daughter started with Dalarna, when she was 5 years old.
Dalarna has a degree in music, and deals very well with children of all ages – warm, friendly, very patient, considerate and encouraging.
If you wish, she will put your child on track to do piano exams.
I have seen her deal with children of varying temperaments with very good results. She does not "drill-and-kill", but keeps children motivated through constant encouragement.
She is also very efficient with her time, and gets a lot covered in a short lesson. Dalarna, as a teacher, has this very fine balance of being strict at the same time while being friendly. So this helps kids to practice well before going to lessons.
Dalarna is also actively involved in a EPTA circles, music competitions, performances and orchestra, which has given my daughter good exposure to perform to various audience.
This is important to keep the children motivated, as they hear new music & can widen their horizons.
Dalarna is a very understanding of the needs of my daughter, and chooses her piano songs, based on her ability to perform.
I have recommended Dalarna to many friends over our 5 years with her, and they are all very happy having her as their piano teacher.
I will continue to highly recommend Dalarna as a piano teacher.

My daughter is 9 years old and she has been taking piano lessons from Ms.Dalarna for little over 3 years. She made great progress and continues to build interest in music. The way Dalarna teaches and encourages to take part in several events keeps my daughter highly motivated.
Teaching an art form to kids requires a lot of experience, talent and patience and Dalarna definitely possesses it!
She keeps her lesson effective, engaging and fun and understands that different students learn best through different methods of teaching.
She also allows me to sit in the class and follow the instructions so I can help my daughter during her practice at home. We find it really beneficial.
We are blessed to have found Dalarna and we highly recommend her to anyone who thrives to learn piano.
