Learn about PianoClass through our students words

We love to hear our students speaking about their experiences with us and even more to share this joy with our website visitors. 🙂


Julie Davis
“Fernanda’s expertise with piano, and her understanding of effective instructional techniques has made my son’s experience in her class an amazingly positive one, unlike any piano instruction he has experienced before. He is learning to THINK and FEEL the music and to communicate through it. Fernanda’s enthusiasm is contagious and she makes every session fun and challenging for him. Her positivity and creativity help him to experience music at a deeper level without even realizing how much he is growing. We are grateful for her investment in his life and his art.”

“I’m studying at PianoClass for 6 months, I’m impressed – every week – with the serious and at the same time funny approach that teacher Fernanda conducts the lesson. Studying at PianoClass is being extremely pleasant, and wonderful experience.”

Luciana Carvalho
“Some time ago, researching at Google about online piano courses, I found PianoClass and thought the organization and the professional background of the teachers were very interesting. I wanted to try it out and scheduled one lesson with teacher Fernanda. I deeply liked the teaching, the amount and quality of instructions gave to me and the virtual experience, shortening a distance of 3.000km from Maceió/AL to Pelotas/RS. Then I started having Custom-tailored video lessons and since then, it has been very useful to have these continuous studies and also enjoy the remaining Special Activities!”

Daniel Lopes PianoClass
“I’ve found out PianoClass by chance, through Mensa, and at first I had a lot of doubts about online live lessons and even if it would be possible to learn how to play the piano as an adult. I was positively surprised in many aspects, like the excellent infra-structure and an outstanding didactic. I’ve being learning and motivated myself to learn more each day. The online lessons give me more time flexibility, comfort and allow me to learn at the same place I’ll be studying and revising by myself, between each lesson. I thank Fernanda and PianoClass for the lessons and the opportunity to make my dream of playing the piano come true.”

Carolina Piovesan PianoClass
“Who starts to study piano can be a little afraid of reading sheet music and memorize them can be quite a challenge. That is how it happened with me, but with Fernanda and Julio’s technique it was just one learning step. The lesson time is like a therapy for me, and monotony is a word that definitely does not exist. PianoClass manages to unite seriousness and fun at the same place, and I always feel very welcome there. I also admire the work developed with the little pianists: it is clear the teacher’s tenderness and responsibility toward the children. I recommend PianoClass with my eyes shut!”

Washington Rodrigues PianoClass
“PianoClass is an excellent music school, as the teachers are highly qualified. I had the pleasure to study, in Pelotas, with the teacher and pianist Fernanda Machado, who taught me among many musical lessons the love and courage to study and become a musician. I also had some classes with her husband, pianist Julio Machado, another great teacher and pianist. I am grateful for having the opportunity to meet them and have classes with those amazing people. I recommend and believe that who has the opportunity should study with them, as it will be a very, very beneficial experience. My hugs for you and wishes of more success each new day.”
