"I have been learning piano from Dr. Batista for six years, and her work is nothing short
of extraordinary! She is very dedicated to teaching me and is always willing to put forth
enormous amount of effort to guide her students. Dr. Batista is an understanding and
empathetic teacher, able to work with any student, no matter the level or age. She
always supports her students and encourages them to take on greater and more exciting
challenges. In fact, she is an excellent teacher, piano performer, and composer. Whether
you wish to learn piano as your choice of study or simply for personal enjoyment, Dr.
Batista is the perfect teacher and mentor. She was always there to support me in all my
endeavors both in piano and in academics, and I would not be where I am today without
her guidance."

"Working with Dr. Alma was an amazing experience I will never forget. She was a great
teacher and my life would not be the same without her. I can't imagine having a better
piano teacher!"

"I was Dr. Batista’s student for almost four years. I would highly recommend her
teaching style to everyone that interested in mastering the piano. Alma is extremely
passionate about her work and truly wants her students to excel in music as well as in
life. In addition she has won many prestigious awards during her career as an instructor
and musician. She is extremely experienced, professional and organized. Alma makes her
students very comfortable and attends to their needs and individual learning styles.

When I was her student she was not only a teacher but also a positive role model and
mentor to me. She always wanted me to do my very best in whatever piece I was playing.
During lessons she expects her students to be respectful (as everyone should be) and
willing to put their focus solely on music while under her direction. Her passion inspired
me to grow both as a student and a musician.

Overall no matter what age range you are or level of experience you have you should
definitely take lessons from Dr. Batista! It is well worth your investment!

Alma always found a way to make learning how to play the piano fun. She was very
ambitious when teaching me a new piece and always pushed me to my greatest potential
when playing and made me feel great about myself when I got the piece just right. She
was friendly and energetic and still is an amazing pianist!

Dr. Alma was my piano teacher for 10 years. She taught me almost everything I know
musically, and laid the groundwork for my musical endeavors for the rest of my life. As a
result of her tried and true teaching methods, playing the piano has become second
nature to me. She did more than teach me the piano, she was there as I grew up, helping
me mature and learn. I have no higher praise.
