Ms. Liu is so kind and patient. Great to know her and study with her.
Very good teacher. Very attentive, focused and patient. Looking forward to my next lesson.
I am an adult beginner! From Jingci's lesson, I learned how to read music and practiced a lot of basic techniques. I can't wait to learn new pieces ! Thank you, Jingci!
Ms. Liu is a great instructor, I strongly recommend Ms.Liu if you want to take piano lesson!
Jingci is a wonderful piano teacher, artist, and a great human being.
We love to study with her as long as we can.
I had piano lessons with Ms. Liu around 3 months so far, I found very inspired from every lessons, and I learned so much standard repertoires from classical piano music, rather than cafe background music!!
I just had a very good piano lesson with Ms.Liu last week, she is incredible and lovely teacher!
My daughter and son are studying with Ms.L. She is such great teacher we've ever met so far!
Wonderful teacher! Her playing is beautiful and powerful!
