"She worked with my daughter on piano, guitar, voice, and songwriting."

I can't say enough about the amazing Libby Nation. She taught my daughter for 5 years and guided her through the difficult decisions about how to involve music in her college choices, career choices, and life beyond high school. You know your teacher is the right choice when your music lesson is the highlight of your week and you count your teacher among your closest mentors and friends. Libby's talents are limitless. She worked with my daughter on piano, guitar, voice, and songwriting. I know my daughter will value her time with Libby for the rest of her life.

I came to Ms. Libby for voice lessons for my 9 year old son who is diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety and is extremely shy. He had never taken lessons. She was a wonderful choice for my son. She was able to help him build his confidence through her patient and nurturing instruction. We are so grateful!

"She helps your child find the instrument that best suits him or her."

We consider Libby to be a part of our family. She has worked with our three kids (ages 8, 10, 12) since the oldest was 6. Libby is an amazing musician who can play anything! She helps your child find the instrument that best suits him or her and in the process challenges them and builds their self confidence. You will not find a finer teacher anywhere!!

"Libby has a magical way of connecting with her students, motivating them to try their best, helping them to develop their own style and love for music." 

Libby is just awesome! She plays several instruments expertly. She has an incredible voice. She's an accomplished musician and has played everywhere from the Grand Ole Opry to Radio City Music Hall. And she's a truly gifted teacher. She is patient, dedicated, and thoughtful. Libby has a magical way of connecting with her students, motivating them to try their best, helping them to develop their own style and love for music. And to top it all off, Libby is a beautiful soul with a warm smile. We couldn't be any luckier to have her for out 8 year old son's music teacher.

"Having been impressed with the progress my son was making in his training with Libby, I saw the opportunity to pick up the guitar and begin playing again."

Having been impressed with the progress my son was making in his training with Libby, I saw the opportunity to pick up the guitar and begin playing again. Since that time, I have made great progress. She is clearly a very talented musician and thus certainly has the musical talent one would expect in a mentor. However, what truly sets her apart from my prior learning experiences is the commitment and enthusiasm she exhibits in teaching. Her approach has been invaluable. Though she is very committed to her performing life, she clearly takes great joy and satisfaction in her parallel vocation of teaching. I have never met a more enthusiastic and patient instructor.  I couldn't recommend her more highly.

"Libby has wonderful strategies for practicing the piano at home that are enjoyable for us both."

Libby started working with my son 6 months ago. At that time, he could play some piano but it was just basic memorization. Since he started with Libby he now is able to read music and has quickly progressed to a more advanced level of playing. She has wonderful strategies for practicing the piano at home that are enjoyable for us both. We love the direction our son has taken because of working with Libby. We look forward to adding guitar lessons with her in the future.  

–Amy S. parent of piano student, age 9


"Along with piano, Libby has encouraged my son to play ukulele and to learn to sing while playing his instruments."

Libby has been an amazing music teacher for my 7 year old son. She really molds her teaching to what method works for the personality and learning style of each individual child. My son is high-energy, and Libby manages to keep his attention through various games, rewards, and fun songs. She breaks the music down into manageable pieces that he can work on. Along with piano, Libby has encouraged my son to play ukulele and learn to sing while playing his instruments.

"Without Libby our children would have lost interest in lessons years ago."

We are so grateful that Libby is our children's piano teacher! Our kids adore her.  She is a methodical and patient teacher whose own love of music and children come through in both her teaching style and her interaction with our children. Without Libby our children would have lost interest in lessons years ago. She keeps them engaged and interested at all times. Simply put, Libby is amazingly talented, and we think the world of her.

"Learning with Libby has given my daughter a deep desire to play and a yearning to always do better. Libby is kind as she is talented." 

Libby is one of those exceptional people that you feel lucky to know and work with. She has been giving my daughter guitar and voice lessons for 5 years, and their connection and Libby's influence are invaluable. Libby is incredibly talented–her voice is so beautiful, and the music she creates on instruments is breathtaking.  She is my daughter's teacher and mentor. They sing and play beautiful duets, and the lessons my daughter learns from having to share each moment in the song are ones she will carry with her forever and will be important in every aspect of her life. Learning with Libby has given my daughter a deep desire to play and a yearning to always do better. Libby is kind as she is talented. She is a wonderful person, with a dynamic personality and a caring heart. Libby loves music and loves to share the gift of music with her students. I adore Libby, admire her talent and work ethic, and am deeply grateful that my daughter has the privilege to learn from her and work with her.

"I have had several music teachers over the years, but Libby Nation is the best. By far."

As one of Libby's adult students for the last 2 years, Libby is more than my "music teacher." She is my music coach, and she brings to each and every class a refreshing approach to learning music. She has knowledge, background, interest, patience, and ability. She has the temperament for encouraging practice but not making it onerous. She offers up suggestions for coping with troublesome, music lessons "speed bumps." I can show up to my lesson with literally ANY fretted instrument, and she has suggestions for how to approach it and to advance with it. I have had several music teachers over the years, but Libby Nation is the best. By far.

"Libby's words are encouraging and have contributed to my son's confidence not only in music but also in life."

Libby has a wonderful teaching style and communicates to the individual student's needs and requests. If there is a song you want to learn on most any instrument she is able to break it down. Libby's words are encouraging and have contributed to my son's confidence not only in music but also in life. I think of music as an investment in my child's future and am thankful to have Libby's influence.
