I took lessons with Aya when I was in high school 13 years ago. She was very inspiring and because of her I decided to major in Music. I’m currently finishing my doctorate in Music and I am much indebted to her for exposing me to such a high level of artistry and instilling me with so much confidence at such a young age. I have very fond memories of Aya’s wonderful teaching.+ Read More
I used to take lessons with her when I was in high school. Because of her, I got in the all state band two years in a row and I had a blast.
She is a great drum teacher. I've learned so much and really enjoy taking lessons with her.
Aya is awesome. She cares about her students and customize lessons for my need. She is great with kids and I highly recommend her for your kid's music lessons.
