Every individual has different goals of learning piano. Some want their children to simply enjoy music, some want to ensure their children shine on the stage. I cultivate every student's interest in music and ability to learn music as their own teacher.

Sharon is very nice and patient for my first lesson. I'd like to keep learning from her:)
My 8 year old is so happy to be taking lessons from Sharon Wu! Ms. Wu is a true professional: in addition to her top qualifications, she has high expectations for her students and a genuine interest in their learning. She also has a kind and encouraging manner. Highly recommended!!+ Read More
Sharon is great at keeping me on track and tailoring the lessons to my specific goals as an opera singer and voice teacher!
Sharon is very patient and at the same time rigorous about getting every single detail right. She has been very helpful in revising different concepts when I first learnt playing piano many years ago, as well as teaching various piano techniques that I didn't realize was important for the long term, especially guiding me how to fix my hand posture. Thanks Sharon!+ Read More
Sharon is a good and kind teacher. As a beginner, I learnt some basic but very useful skill while taking classes with her.
Sharon is a very kind and great instructor. She is very good at teaching young kid, my daughter loves to take lessons with her!
My son started taking lessons with Ms. Sharon about four months ago. I was searching for a piano teacher with classical background because I know that classical background is very important in basics of piano. I was looking for a serious teacher who was able to keep my son focused and learn well because I want piano to be a big part of my son. Sharon not only can keep my son, who is only 7, focused for 60 minutes, but he is truly enjoying his time with her. He loves taking lessons with her, enjoys practicing at home, and eager to go back to the lesson every week. I thought, at first, 60 minute lesson may be too long for 7 year old boy. However, Sharon keeps him interested, and he is learning basics of piano very well. I searched for a good piano teacher for almost a year, and I am very glad that we met Ms. Sharon.+ Read More
My daughter is 8 years old, and has been learning piano from Sharon for almost a year. Sharon is very kind and patient with kids. Her professional teaching skill is also very impressive. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested learning piano.
My daughter just started taking lessons with Sharon three weeks ago. I found Sharon's education and experience are very solid, and she knows how to observe students. My daughter Emma is 9 years old, and she was not very excited when I mentioned starting having piano lessons. However, it turns out that she likes Sharon's piano lessons! It's fair to give four stars since we only know Sharon for three weeks, but I have good expectation and am very looking forward for next lesson!+ Read More
I have worked with Sharon as a colleague in many different settings. Her personality is always kind, her musicianship profound, and her dedication to the arts undying. Students of any level would no doubt benefit from her experience.
Sharon is a very experienced teacher with patient and carefulness. When I don't understand how to approach my piece, she would demonstrate and explain it thoroughly. I highly recommend her!
Teacher Wu is really kind and patient with a great teaching system.
