My 10 year old son and I have been taking piano lessons with Joy for 2 years. She is an excellent teacher with both children and adults. Joy is very patient and caring with her students. She is very knowledgeable and skilled at piano. She makes the lessons fun and enjoyable for the kids. Joy sees the strengths and potential in her students and she encourages and nurtures them. She is very encouraging and positive. My son and I both enjoy our lessons with her and look forward to them. My 6 year old daughter has also started piano lessons with Joy. I would highly recommend Joy to anyone wanting to learn piano without any hesitation.

Our daughter has been taking piano lessons with Joy for 6 years. We are extremely happy with Joy’s teaching method and the progress our daughter has made.  In addition to being a gifted pianist, Joy has a natural ability to connect with and motivate her students.  Her kind, patient and encouraging manner have made learning piano enjoyable. Joy’s love of teaching music to her students is evident in every lesson.  We’ve recommended Joy to many of our friends!

I started with Joy when I was five years old, and for the past 12 years, she has taught me not only the language of music, but also important life lessons that I carry with me today. She’s helped shape my values and personality, and has had a significant impact on my life!
