“Welcome to Pleasant Mountain Music! I couldn’t be more enthusiastic to begin or continue a musical journey with you or your child (or BOTH in some cases)! I aim to instil enjoyment of lessons and commitment to practice in the students who come through my classroom. Finally, I encourage self-expression and musicality as a life-long skill” – Sarah

“I am so excited to meet you, work with you to develop your unique skills, and to help you find your individuality and other greatness that makes you so special! I just love the performing arts so much, and I want to share that with you so that you will love it too. Let’s turn your dreams and aspirations into real-life goals.” – Chersea


I cant reiterate enough just how valuable I found my time with Nadim and George. The lessons with both of them have helped give me the confidence to pursue a career in music! Without their guidance I wouldn’t be on the path I’m on right now!

Congratulations on a so very successful winter concert yesterday. Thank you for pouring out your hearts to these young talented music lovers. It is a pure enjoyment seeing them shine and rock the stage. I am very impressed with everything, from the performance, to the venue decoration, to the program rundown and music selection and the time control….the list can go on and on. As a mom who always play a giver role, being able to sit back, relax and enjoy that one hour of beautiful music is the best gift in this season. Thank you PMM. Love you guys!!

Sarah is an amazing piano teacher. Our 9yo loves his lessons, and he’s always eager to practice for the next one so he can show her his songs. Highly recommended!

My practice sessions at PMM are great; the room is clean, organized and spacious, and I could hardly hear a peep from the other lesson rooms
