Hi there! Thanks for visiting my profile :)

Every 7-8 months, I host recitals for my students to perform in front of family and friends. Parents loved the previous recitals from May 2016 and January 2017. This gives students the opportunity to display their talents and hard work in a formal setting. Recitals are optional, for all instruments, and will be held at the Piano Place in Troy.

I have a Master's degree in Social Work and love building relationships with clients and empowering people. I currently still take piano & drum 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.

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.
