I have three boys ages 13,12,and 9 that take piano lessons from Mrs. Bratton. They absolutely love her! She is an amazing teacher because she makes lessons fun while allowing them to continue to learn and improve. My kids are motivated to practice at home which is fantastic. I’m so impressed with how far they’ve come as musicians since taking lessons from Sharon. We’re so grateful to have found her!

My sons, ages 9 and 11, began taking lessons with Mrs. Sharon
Bratton in September of 2017. Sharon’s
love of piano was evident from the start. Through Sharon, both boys have been
able to greatly expand upon their previous knowledge and gain a greater
understanding of rhythm, timing, and overall musicality. She takes extra time
and directs focus where needed. My boys are not receiving “cookie-cutter”
lessons. I have sat in during my boys’ sessions with Sharon, and I truly
believe they are learning according to their needs and in a way that will serve
them long-term. This also is evident in the way they have been taught to
practice. At home in between lessons, they no longer are merely playing a song
from beginning to end; now, they are taking the song apart, measure by measure,
and mastering it as intended until moving on to the next part. Sharon also has
provided the boys with the opportunity to express themselves and their
interests. They have been invited and encouraged to learn the songs they enjoy.
An additional plus is Sharon’s
flexibility. My boys, like most kids today, are involved in multiple
activities, and it can be hard to fit in everything. Sharon has been extremely
accommodating and has allowed us to reschedule when needed so that the boys do
not have to miss out on lessons. Sharon is talented, kind, knowledgeable,
motivational, fair, accommodating, and genuine, and we couldn’t be happier to
have her in our lives.

I have been taking lessons
from Mrs. Bratton for four years. She is a great teacher, she
encourages me to always complete things even when they are
difficult. She calls me a ' perfectionist' because I like
to get things absolutely perfect. I am now working on intermediate
classical music and music theory. She is also very flexible with
time. I like taking lessons from Mrs. Bratton!
