Hilda Visser-Scott


“Hilda Scott taught piano to my daughters, Ella and Neve, in Canberra, Australia between 2007 – 2009. At the time, my daughters were aged between 9 years old and 13 years old. Hilda is a true professional who encourages her students to strive for excellence while understanding both the technical and emotional ‘feel’ of the piano. My children were inspired by Hilda’s encouragement and dedication, to sit their Australian piano exams while she was their teacher. My youngest daughter, Neve, was awarded a certificate for topping the state (NSW) in one of her exams. I cannot speak highly enough of Hilda as a pianist and a teacher. She is an accomplished performer in her own right and a delightful presence in our girl’s lives. Despite not teaching my daughters for a number of years (because we moved overseas to live in Washington DC), Hilda takes a continued interest in our children’s musical education and remains a friend to us all. I cannot recommend her highly enough to any family.”

“Hilda Visser-Scott taught our 2 children piano for 5 years while they were aged 9-16 years and piano grades 3-8. Hilda is an extremely kind, trustworthy and diligent teacher who worked above and beyond her obligation to give our children a wonderful education and enjoyment of music. She encouraged the children to extend themselves recommending competitions as well as introducing them to other specialty teachers to further their musical education. We would be happy to be contacted and will give our highest recommendation of Hilda.”

We are thank ful for her! 
My very shy 11 year old adores Hilda who is funny, sweet, kind and brings my daughter out of her shell. Hilda is patient and very good with a fast learner or a slow learner and is both professional and encouraging at the same time. If I had had a piano teacher like this - who knows where I would be now! This Thanksgiving we are thankful for Hilda!

“It is with pleasure that we provide this reference for Ms. Hilda Visser-Scott. We have known Hilda for five years and she has been a wonderful piano teacher for our two girls from the ages of 6 to 11 years and covering piano levels from Preliminary to Grade 2.

“Both girls have made great progress and achieved excellent results under Hilda’s attentive and professional tuition. Hilda has a warm and encouraging style, which has been well suited to our children and she has inspired them in their love of music and the expression and joy it brings to daily life. The girls were very sad when Hilda left Canberra and moved to New York. We have no hesitation in highly recommending Hilda as a trustworthy, caring and generous natured person and an excellent piano teacher.”
