“Easy, fun, suitable to their ages.” May 2015  (SB1 Parent)

My daughter’s love of music and reading began in Nora Shehata’s Sunshine I class at MYC with puppets, shakers, pipe cleaner musical notes, and “hop” the rabbit hopping along a trail. With Nora’s guidance, my daughter thoroughly enjoyed learning and achieved Theory I and Level I Piano with First Class Honours by her 9th birthday.”  Sandra Thomas

Jasmin is really in love with piano right now, I have to stop her every night. I am sure the holiday book would be a bonus to her. ” November 2010 – Min – Sunshine Parent

“I also wanted you to know about some of the benefits that are starting to really come through due to the MYC method of teaching -and your enthusiasm with kids.  Tonight, as we sat down to do our music, Sarah just put her MB2 book aside and started to write a piece of music for about 20 minutes.” October 2010 – Julie, MB2 Parent

The pleasure and joy she brings to her MYC classes are obvious when I see her students and families either coming to or leaving their classes. She is well prepared and is a very conscious teacher.

Comments after exam results:

(re First Class Honours) “This a huge accomplishment for all of us, especially you Nora.  Thanks for you patience and dedication.” Parent of MB3 grad, June 2013

“Good news and thank you so much for the great teaching!” Parent of MB3 grad, June 2013

Congratulations to you as the teacher.  You taught her well.” Parent of MB3 grad,  May 2013

“Nora uses extra techniques to make learning Music more fun, and the MYC curriculum in a group environment is already fun. Picture starting to learn Music at age 3 or 4 with puppets, shakers, pipe cleaner musical notes, and “hop” the rabbit hopping along a trail; add to that a teacher who seeks out opportunities to share age-appropriate stories and techniques to remember stuff and laugh along the way. I enjoyed attending the classes as too, and learned music theory as well. My daughter had many opportunities to sing/play in front of an audience at recitals (at a church with an audience of parents and relatives). She sang in a group, played in a group, and played the grand piano on her own – a great confidence builder. ” June, 2014 (Parent of MB3 Graduate that started in Sunshine 1)
