Ms. Suji is a wonderful, caring teacher, who really looks out for the overall musical experience your child will encounter. My daughter's love of piano and music as whole has enhanced because of Ms. Suji. I highly recommend Ms. Suji and Music Tree Piano Studio for anyone looking to start a lesson in piano. Your child will love playing the piano!

Suji has been teaching my daughter piano for 5 years. Not only is she an amazing teacher -but she is fair and works well with parents and our crazy schedules. She pushes my daughter to work hard while finding fun and creative ways to keep her interested in playing.

She is wonderful!!!! All my three kids played piano so I’ve experienced many teachers; but Ms. Suji is the best! She really teaches to the child and tries to give and get most from the child.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Suji for three years. In that time, she has learned to read music, has started to develop an understanding of the theory behind the music she is learning, and has become more comfortable performing in front of an audience. Ms. Suji is knowledgeable, flexible, and professional. I highly recommend Ms. Suji and Music Tree Piano Studio.
