She teaches by example, drawing on her excellence...

   Elena has been teaching my 2 sons music for about 3 years. She has an encouraging yet “get down to business” manor that draws the best from her students.

   She teaches by example, drawing on her excellence as an accordion player and musician making lessons fun and challenging. Elena is a great music teacher and I have come to appreciate her caring friendship as well.

She is knowledgable, positive, energetic, and well organized.

   Elena is great! She helped me to find the right accordion. She is flexible in scheduling. She customizes the class to suit my needs. She is knowledgable, positive, energetic, and well organized. She is an excellent accordionist and she will help her students to be as well.

I'm really happy to find her. 

If you're looking for an accordion instructor in the area, search no more. Hire Elena!

We have been amazed at the progress that our two boys...

   We have been amazed at the progress that our two boys (8 and 5) have shown since starting with Ms. Elena for piano lessons.  Ms. Elena has a no-nonsense approach to teaching while still being gentle and very patient. She also mixes in music theory activities along with their piano lessons to help keep their attention.

She is kind, patient, and very encouraging.

     My 7 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Elena Fainshtein for about one year, and I am amazed at her progress during this time.
   I first met Elena when she was teaching music and playing accordion at my daughter's preschool. Elena is an outstanding musician, and she inspires her students to love music as much as she does. She is kind, patient, and very encouraging.

   She helps her students choose music that is both challenging and fun. As her students perform at recitals, you can see the joy in her eyes. She is truly a gifted teacher and musician.

Elena's love for music lives through every one of her students.

   I was born in India in family of musicians. I enjoy any type of music especially Indian, and Western classical music. Being a software engineer I never found time to learn any music.

    But my passion for learning piano was ignited again when I met Elena five years ago through a mutual friend of ours. I was very fortunate to meet her.

   Elena brought music into my life again, teaching me to play piano. She became a soul friend of me. Elena loves to teach kids, and kids adore her. I feel happy to see kids playing piano or accordion. Elena's love for music lives through every one of her students.

Under Elena's Instruction I have improved much faster than I ever imagined!
