Mrs. Dacus is a rare find in a piano teacher....she is an excellent teacher who helps budding pianists reach their full musical potential. She understands children and how they learn, thus piano lessons are joyful adventures in the world of music....and might include a bit of geography, vocabulary, history, math or science as well! Kansas' loss is North Carolina's gain....piano students of Mrs. Dacus are blessed! My first grade daughter summed her up most appropriately when she said "Mrs. Dacus has a special heart."  -- Neila

ALUMNI SAY...

Mrs. Dacus! Thank you so much for having a profound impact on my life. You taught me to love music and to be able to perform for others. This may not seem like much to some, but to me it means the world. I have used the skills you taught me in almost every aspect of confidence and development. I can sit through a concert and hear the very essence of music and find beauty in things that others may miss.  I played the piano today for the first time in over 6 months and it was so wonderful to sit down and remember some of the pieces that I had played for so long.  We all enjoyed me playing, and I enjoyed it the most. Thank you for all the memories and the great teaching.   – Matt, stationed in Afghanistan
