  1. "Our son took private French Horn lessons. Cindy took the time to help him pick and prepare music for the state's Solo/Ensemble competitions as well as taking time to assist him with the purchase of his own French Horn. She was not just our son's instructor, but also tremendous inspiration to him. I feel that because of the care and time she took to instruct and prepare him, he went on to win several honors with his horn including a Band Director's Award and 2nd in Washington State Solo/Ensemble Competition for a woodwind quintet. He was also Drum Major for the Kamiak High School Show Band during his senior year of high school. Cindy is a fabulous musician and teacher."

  3. "​Great French horn teacher. My daughter had a wonderful experience dealing with Cindy. She's is flexible with our busy schedule. My daughter learned french horn from Cindy since middle school. She is now playing in her high school band and was able to play anything quickly. She owed it to Cindy for having good tone. She improved very quickly through Cindy methods of teaching. Cindy is patient and also took real interest in my daughter ability. I'm glad my daughter have such a great teacher. Thank you Cindy!"

  4. My class of second graders waited with anticipation for Cindy to come through our classroom door each Monday. She always came in with a well -prepared lesson which allowed the kids to easily pick up the pre-recorder and find success. She had loads of patience with the children and the class had loads of fun. I would have never guessed the children could pick up playing an instrument so fast. Amazing!

  7. Mrs. Deane was a wonderful music instructor for my first grade students. She was always extremely professional, organized, kind, and she delivered her instruction at a very kid-friendly level. Mrs. Deane did a great job setting my students up for success. Their confidence with playing the recorder grew tremendously over the six weeks of their lessons. I was very impressed with how fast they learned these new skills and how they responded so well to Mrs. Deane's lessons. Overall, she was great!

  8. I was a teacher in the school district that Cindy Deane works as a colloborative part time instructor. I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Deane for 2 years. With other professionals, Mrs. Deane is very kind and considerate. She has shared a variety of ideas and exercises with me that have enabled me to become a better educator. She cares about the growth of the students and came extremely prepared for the short weekly lessons to best utilize her time with them. Her creativity and compassion make her an outstanding educator.

  10. Cindy taught my first grade student to play the pre-recorder. She was enthusiastic, well prepared and very professional. My students learned how to play simple songs in just a few weeks! Cindy’s love of music and working with students is very apparent!
