I really enjoyed my lesson with Lena today. She is a really patient, kind, and caring piano teacher. Her teaching style was very clear and easy to understand even though I do not have any past experience in music or playing instruments. She helped me learn the basic keys. I look forward to taking more lessons with her. I have already signed up for 4 additional lessons.

I was very happy to had her for my children because Ms. Kim help them so much .
My daughter had bad habits from previous teachers and didn" t want to practice, but Ms. Kim corrected and rebuilt good foundation and my dauthter enjoyed to play the piano as soon as she comes back from school. I am sure Ms. Kim's warmness and humorus teaching style made my daughter kept on playing. Finally she made my daughter got into piano major in NYU.
And Ms. Kim was so patient to my son. He started piano when he was 5. My son has difficulty on focusing whatever he does. But Ms. Kim taught him very interesting way. I thought either my son or Ms. Kim would give up, but Ms. Kim made my son to enjoy plalying the piano. She has music therapy degree and used lots of fun materials and lesson plans to made my son to focus on lesson time. He is grown up now and still playing the piano. I appreciate it so much to Ms. Kim.
혹시 한국 어머니들이나 학생들이 피아노 레슨에 관심있으시다면 김선생님 정말 추천합니다. 선생님이 뉴저지 계실때 저희애들 둘이 7 년 넘게 레슨 받았는데 지금도 생각납니다. 큰딸아이는 처음엔 취미로 배우게 하려고만 했는데 선생님 덕분에 뉴욕음대까지 보내게 되었고 막내는 워낙 정신없는 어린이였는데 선생님이 인내심이 대단하셔요, 음악교육학이랑 음악치료까지 공부하신 분이라 그런지 그냥 피아노만 연습하라고 푸쉬하는게 아니라 재미있게 즐길수 있도록 끝까지 잘 가르쳐주셨어요. 레슨 시간마다 집중할수 있게끔 만드시는거 보니 믿고 잘 맡기길 잘했구나 했어요. 선생님이 강조하셨던게 있는데 학생 학부모 선생님 세박자가 잘 맞아야 한다고.. 저는 피아노 애 들 가르치면서 선생님의 중요성을 정말 절실히 알겠더라구요. 딸아이 가르칠 초기에는 다른 선생님들이 제대로 안가르쳐주고 습관들이 잘못들어서 오래 애먹었어요. 처음부터 김선생님 만났으면 고생 안했을텐데..그래도 중간부터라도 선생님 만나고 저희 딸애가 연습도 열심히 하고 피아노 재미있다고 음대가겠다고 했어서 엄마로서 너무나 감사하고 다행이고 잘되었다 생각 많이했어요. 선생님이 음악에 대해 열정도 대단하고 아이들 가르치시는거 볼때는 저도 조금만 짬이 있다면 배우고싶다라는 생각도 들었어요. 연말마다 김선생님이 애들 데리고 피아노 리싸이틀 하던때도 너무 좋았네요. 아이들 하나하나 정성들여 가르치시고 씨앗을 잘 뿌리고 가꾸셨구나 하던 생각이 납니다. 캘리포니아에서도 좋은 결실들 많이 맺으시길 바라면서
이 글 보시는 분들은 망설이지 마시구 김선생님한테 아이들 맡겨보세요^^
