Frances has been such a wonderful and patient teacher for my son Travis. He enjoys every lesson and has learned so much!

Frances is not only an amazing musician but she's also a great teacher. She's patient, kind and meticulous. I learn something new every time I have a lesson. She's enthusiastic about her work and its obvious she loves what she does. Frances is not only my piano instructor but also my vocal coach. I've improved tremendously ever since I began taking lessons with her. If you need any type of musical guidance, I would highly recommend Frances Kramer.

Frances changed my life by reminding me to "play it like you mean it!" She is a great teacher, very patient, and balances giving me freedom and flexibility while maintaining structure with her lessons. She is classically trained and is also teaching me theory so that I could one day compose and arrange. Frances Kramer is great!

I  have been taking lessons with Frances Kramer for 4 years. I am 51 years old, and I never had lessons previously. When I contacted her, I indicated that my number one goal was to play the standards, and I wanted to be able to play You Don’t Know Me within 3 months. She did it! (It wasn’t Ray Charles, but, people loved it, and I have since perfected it.) Frances taught me the basics and enough theory and technical pointers to make my dream come true; quickly. She clearly adapts her approach to the needs and wants of her students. Frances is very accommodating, and approachable. She is a rare ultra-gifted and talented musician, who is also empathetic. I am progressing wonderfully under her tutelage. She has given me the gift of music, which provides me great happiness and peace. Thank you, Frances!

Frances has been teaching piano to my son for two years. I love that she uses a traditional progression of learning to read music and basic music theory while allowing him to select some fun songs that he wants to play, so he is continuously growing as a musician and enjoying the process along the way! The fact that my son looks forward to playing piano every day is a testament to Frances who keeps the lessons interesting and challenging, while also being encouraging and building his confidence. A special bonus is that Frances takes the time and effort to organize annual student recitals (optional) for her students so they have the opportunity to perform for family and friends. I feel that these recitals really enhance the whole experience of learning to play the piano for our son by adding an exciting aspect and showing him the joy of sharing music with others. I highly recommend Frances Kramer as a piano instructor!
