Many of Teresa’s students and their parents
expressed their appreciation for her teaching:


We have been extremely impressed with Teresa’s level of musical knowledge and her ability to pass that on to her students. She sets high standards for herself and her students, and offers her utmost assistance so they reach their maximum potential. She is gentle and encouraging with her students, yet firm and professional in her manner. We feel very fortunate to have found such a well trained and qualified teacher in Nanaimo.

As a student-teacher in search of the best instructor Nanaimo has to offer, I had to look no further than Teresa M. Borek. In her I found a teacher whose excellent academic background, dedication to the highest standards and love of music would combine to provide me with the first-class training I sought. I am very proud to be able to call her my musical mentor.
