What People Say About Us
“Ms YAN is a very friendly and understanding teacher, and her lessons are also very enjoyable. She understands her students very well such that she is able to unleash her student’s potential when she sees that they can do better with a little extra push. Her lessons are unlike other classes that focuses only on exam pieces where students only learn 3 or 4 pieces per year. She exposes her students to different pieces and also helps her students build solid foundations.”
“Excellent teacher who makes Violin lessons interesting and difficult pieces easy!”
