Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

During May 2016, nine of the children I teach performed in a recital at Evola Music Center. Parents and families really enjoyed this event so I will host another recital this winter.
(If adults are also interested in performing, I will get together a group of musicians to play together.)

I have a Master's degree in Social Work and love building relationships with clients and empowering people. I am currently still taking piano & violin lessons from accomplished music teachers to continue learning techniques to pass on to my students...I believe a great teacher never stops being a student.

**I no longer travel to students' homes for lessons, so please choose the option to take lessons at my apartment/studio. Thanks!**

I look forward to hearing from you,

Chenyo is such an amazing teacher. She spends time teaching me every little part of violin and she would not move on until the lesson is understood. Great teacher, I recommend her to all who are seeking to learn music.

We just started with Chenyu and I'm so glad at the way she teaches my kids. They love her and in spite of their age (3 1/2 year old twins) and a 5 year old, I feel that they are actually learning something. I look forward to seeing them blossom in the future.
