Students of all ages are encouraged to learn and reap the benefits of music education." - Jaclyn, Voice & Piano Teacher.
"My students really look forward to each lesson. I'm enthusiastic, patient, and I always motivate my students to believe in themselves. My students thoroughly enjoy learning music, and I ensure that each student progresses every week. " - Angela, Parent of Andrew (11 years old) and Julianne (9 years old).
"I had a great great learning experience with Jaclyn! She is creative, patient, fun, like to challenge - it has made my piano learning journey so much fun! Till date, I have about 1 year learning experience with her - my skill has improved tremendously! I still remember my first lesson was "where is Middle C note/key?" Today, I can play a Minuet music piece! All great work and encouragement from Jaclyn.
The greatest thing that I learnt from Jaclyn - you can be great pianist to read music sheet, but that doesn't means that you can play a piece of good music. Almost every music piece, she taught it with a different style, phrasing and expressions! Every lesson is a new world to explore and she made it so enjoyable." Denise (Age 30)
