Linda is very patient with the kids and keeps them focused. She is the rare combination of exceptional talent and an innate ability to teach.

Linda is genuinely enthusiastic about teaching piano and we feel so lucky to have found her. She has a way of breaking down piano so that our daughters can understand it. I would highly recommend Linda!

Linda (Dr. Angkasa) did a fantastic job. She is professional and very thorough in her instruction, but most importantly, my son and daughter are now looking forward to piano every week! She even went out of her way to provide alternate lessons to help avoid sibling rivalry.
