Parent and Student Testimonials

"Two thumbs up, five stars, and 10 out of 10! On every rating scale, I would give Kim the highest score for her wonderful musical instruction. Her enthusiasm and passion for music are evident during every lesson and recital. As a result of her high expectations and encouraging feedback, my son is always motivated to meet his practice goal and persist when faced with a challenging piece. She has helped nurture a love of music that has enriched his life and brought joy to him and to his family."

"I always feel good when I leave my lesson and it motivates me to practice more."
     - Asher, clarinet student for 10 years

"After almost three years with Ms. Kim, our daughter still enjoys playing the piano, practices regularly, and looks forward to her weekly lessons - which says a lot given how challenging it can be to get 'tweens to practice.  Ms. Kim an extremely kind and patient teacher who makes lessons challenging yet fun and brings out the best in her students. Being able to continue lessons remotely every week throughout COVID-19 has been incredibly helpful to our family.  Ms. Kim did not miss a beat and provided much-needed consistancy during an uncertain time."

"I have been taking piano lessons from Ms.Kim for nine years, and I really, really, love them! Her classes have given me an appreciation for music and for the important skill of practicing consistently. With her help, I learned pieces like Flight of the Bumble Bee (which I’ve wanted to play ever since I was little.) She’s the best piano teacher ever!"
