We’ve had Aku as our 7 year old daughter piano instructor for several months. Our daughter loved her and always enjoyed learning from her. Aku was always pleasant and very motivating for our daughter. We highly recommend her

Aku is a great piano instructor. She taught my then-6-year-old daughter who was a beginner. She was patient and encouraging. She helped my daughter build confidence while enjoying piano playing. I highly recommend Aku as a piano instructor!

Aku Adjibolosoo has been teaching my daughter piano for almost a year. The lessons began when my daughter was five and had no piano experience. She now confidently reads music and plays simple songs with both hands with proper rhythm and intonation. Aku has been an amazing piano teacher. She is patient, kind, supportive, fun, creative, dependable, and responsible. She has a very positive teaching style and my girl loves learning from her. Aku manages to keep the lesson on track while making it fun and interesting. My daughter has started composing her own pieces (in her mind not on paper). They play these pieces together in addition to the assigned songs. Aku has been wonderfully supportive of this and when they play the songs together she figures out just the right accompaniment to match the song. She remembers her part so they can practice these pieces weekly by memory. I would highly recommend Aku as a piano teacher for anyone, particularly children. I don’t know if my daughter would enjoy piano playing as much if she had any other teacher. We are so very lucky to have found her.

My son (age 7) started taking lessons with Aku this past year and I couldn’t be happier! Aku is a sweet gal who is great with kids and I love that we are able to do lessons in her home. And I love that Aku listened to what my son likes best and tailored his lessons and homework to his individual preferences. He enjoys his lessons and is truly learning a love of piano.
