Quotes from Parents


“Dawna Hammers is a great music teacher. Her Circle of Sound groups are so much fun for the children.  Everyone has an opportunity to participate no matter the age.  The grownups are even welcome to join in.  It has been so much fun for all.  My 10 year old  Granddaughter is absolutely mesmerized by her.  As a special needs child, her great love is and always has been music.  Singing with Dawna has helped so much with her speech impediments.  Dawna has taught her how to sing slowly and pronounce every word.  She has also had private lessons at our home.  It has been so wonderful listening to to Dawna direct her and correct her with t times have been when she and Dawna have been sitting  under the tree on a warm summer day with the sounds of music echoing throughout the neighborhood.

I would recommend Dawna to any parent.  I can guarantee that your child will fall in love with her as soon as they start singing.  Your child or Grandchild will look forward to every class whether it be Circle of

Sound, a private lesson, or a visit to a nursing home.

“Just wanted to let you know that Ian played the Toccata beautifully today.  Everyone was so impressed - as were Glenn and I.  It was somewhat emotional for me to see my bouncy, wiggly, hard to focus son up there playing so beautifully.  Thank you so much for sticking with Ian and believing in him!  We are very grateful.”

“Lucas is totally enjoying learning from you and I think you are doing an amazing job with him. Thank you.”
Lori Roberts
“Thanks so much for your flexibility. You have been a great influence on JC. You teach him as much with who you are as you do with what you know”  Mathew Winston
"Dawna has been teaching our 7 and 9 year old sons for about 9 months.  She was their first teacher and has succeeded in making them really enjoy playing the piano.  She works with each child to understand their personality and structure her approach to make it fun and productive for the child.  She does not have a "one size fits all" cookbook approach.  My wife and I were most pleased when we noticed that our sons would gravitate to the piano on their own to play when they wanted to relax”  Doug and Lisa Merrill

Dear Dawna,
Thank you so much for coming to our Multiculteral Event. I thought it went well, and your participation added an additional level of quality. Your songs were amazing and the kids and adults were really drawn to your efforts and spirit. Thank you for being so generous with your time. 

My best,
