Alice is great with kids. My five-year-old enjoys learning piano with her. She is very patient and good at explaining things in a simple way that kids could understand quickly.

Alice is the best! I have had multiple piano teachers and she is by far the most patient and professional instructor I have had. My playing has literally improved significantly since studying with her. I highly recommend her!

Alice was very kind and knowledgeable! She was also very patient with our annoying dog who wouldn't leave her alone! I'm looking forward to more lessons!

My experience with Mrs. Alice has been nothing but pleasant, not only is she caring, kind, and considerate, she's extremely talented in what she does. I have had the honor of being her student for nearly 5 years and am glad to say that if you're a student of Mrs. Alice then you are in good hands.

Ms. Alice is one of the most memorable piano teachers I've taken lessons with. I would always look forward to piano lessons because she would make them fun yet still be able to move forward in songs and techniques. Whenever Ms. Alice plays a section of a song for demonstration, I could feel the emotion behind her playing and I think that plays a role in her being an excellent piano teacher.
I enjoyed my lessons with Ms. Alice very much and I strongly believe that anyone who takes lessons with her will enjoy them as well.

Ms. Alice is a great piano teacher/instructor. She is so patient with her students even when they sometimes don’t listen. She is also very experienced with piano and amazing at playing it as well. She is not only a great piano teacher but also a great friend to have.

Ms. Alice is a very experienced piano instructor. She's very patient to my kids. Both of them love her so much. If you want to study how to play piano, Ms. Alice is the one you should go for.

She can give you not only about the notes, she will let you feel the music on piano. You will learn how to interpret music on your way and find your music style.
She will let you feel not as a teacher and student just like the friend and do something together.

Ms. Alice was honestly just a delight to work with. Not only was she good with teaching the piano but she works very well with younger kids and teenagers. I can say that I have never heard any of her other students or other teachers complain about her and her teaching . While under her teaching, I personally was able to expand my repertoire and advance my techniques on piano. She is definitely very well educated in music history and is always able to explain a piece's background and the musicality and style of it. she always encourages her students to work hard and try something new. Ms. Alice being bilingual also helps the parents a lot from what I have seen. Most children speak English but their parents who speak Chinese are able to notified of what their children are learning through the teacher .If you happen to work with Ms. Alice, I think it is worth it and you will have an amazing time, she would never give up on her student and would push them in the right direction or help them find another one .

Early Childhood Music Teacher
Aug 2008

Musik Garten

Music Garten is a education system that provides music to early childhood. This music system brings a lot of joy to young children before they start leaning a musical instrument. As a piano instructor and one of the Music Garten teacher, I do find a well connection for each of my students when it comes to musical learning. Even for those students who didn't start learning a musical instrument later, still get benefits from the classes I gave.
