In her coaching of pianists and chamber music ensembles, I have observed that she always has something of value to offer and is able immediately to communicate musical insights to the performers. She is a devoted teacher and is especially valuable due to her exceptional musical intelligence and knowledge of the repertoire.
(Deon Nielsen Price, D.M.A., pianist and composer, President of National Association of Composers and Professor Emerita at El Camino College, February 1, 2005)

Sanya Shoilevska Henderson proved herself to be an excellent music teacher, possessing a caring and supportive attitude toward her students. Her previous working experience as a University professor of music history, theory and music appreciation, as well as her outstanding pianistic background, allowed her to teach a variety of classes in Los Angeles Yamaha Music School, as follows: individual and group piano classes of beginning, intermediate, and advanced level, music theory classes, keyboard classes, and ensemble classes. In addition, she was trained by the Yamaha Music Corporation to teach specialized group classes which require from the teacher highly developed organizational skills, and exceptional professional coordination. During these classes Ms. Henderson performed with ease numerous musical activities: from keyboard, rhythm, and harmony training, to sight-reading, solfeggio, and expressive singing with an accompaniment on electric organ or Yamaha’s Clavinova. Her classes were always creative, prepared, and well organized. The students followed her classes with joy, attention, and affection, regularly presenting their achievements at the school recitals. Due to her love for music, devotion to her profession, great communication skills, and charming personality, Ms. Henderson was able to establish an excellent report and contact with her students, whether children or adults (the age of our students range from 3 to 60+). The most important is that she nurtured students’ love for music and developed their knowledge following high musical standards.
(Eva Kaminski, musician, owner of the Los Angeles Yamaha Music School)

For six years (1994-2000), I have been Sanya’s mentor in her work on her doctoral dissertation. It has been these years that have shown me her tremendous vitality, intelligence, and really admirable personality traits. She has highly cultivated musical tastes, deep dedication to the art, and a boundless willingness to advance and refine her already estimable professional skills in addressing the most interesting areas of current musical thought. These are among the very many special attributes underlying the work of this gifted pianist, musicologist, and composer. Besides her ample competence in the field of music in general, and musicology as well as piano in particular, she also has excellent teaching skills and experience. She has taught for Yamaha School of Music as well as privately. Her students perform at recitals, festivals, and competitions. She is dedicated to her art, compassionate and stimulating to her students and a brilliant researcher and writer.
(Dr. Beverly Grigsby, composer and musicologist, Professor Emerita Music at California State University in Northridge)
