Worth everything. A year-round weekly commitment we have made for nine years that benefits our three boys in music and in all of their pursuits. In their lessons with Ella, they have discovered that when they work hard and pay attention to detail, they can make beautiful music–and the ethics of hard work helps in school and sports and anything they do. Ella’s attention to detail and focus on technique creates a foundation of musical skill and confidence. They have learned to be confident performing and speaking in front of others. And they have learned how good it feels to see other people appreciate when you make music.

Our daughters Kavya and Kanya have been taking Piano lessons from Kramer’s School of Music for the past 6 years and it has been a wonderful experience. We have seen remarkable improvement over the years and the kids really look forward to the piano lessons. Ella is extremely committed and really expects perfection from the students which reflects through her student’s play.

Parents are informed about different piano exams/contests. By participating in contests, kids get an opportunity to be in MMTA Honors concert which is a pride! Teacher plays an important role in helping the kids for selecting the right musical piece to play. School arranges performances for each season, I would call this a Highlight as it gives confidence and motivation to kids.

Apart from practical learning, kids gain the theoretical knowledge about music and has special classes for the same. The symbols, notes are familiar for the kids which allows them to learn any other instrument!

Eleonora started teaching my son, Anirudh, when he was 5. She is a very dedicated, talented proficient piano teacher. She is very patient and follows a high standard in her teaching. She supports and encourages to progress and work towards perfection. I am also very much impressed with her senior students during the recitals. My Son enjoys her lesson a lot.

Elena Kramer is an accomplished pianist and a superb teacher. Through years of studying music and the teaching of many students she has accumulated a vast amount of music knowledge and the skills necessary to instruct, inspire, and motivate a student. Elena is an outstanding piano teacher with the expertise needed to bring out the best in her students and provide the mentorship required for students seeking greater achievement and enjoyment in piano studies. Her extensive experience and professionalism is evident in how she conducts her lessons and in the results she creates in her students. She challenges her students to do their utmost best with every piece, paying attention not only to technical detail, but also to the artistry, emotion and story that the piece should express. During the lesson process, Elena teaches not only what to practice, but more importantly, how to practice. She uses analysis as part of approaching a new piece and gives clear and concise explanations. I have studied baroque, classical, romantic, contemporary pieces with her. I would highly recommend Elena for anyone seeking piano instruction, theory and a well-rounded music education.
