It was one of the most fun experience! She is truly a great teacher. I highly recommend her.
Tu Quyen is a wonderful teacher. She teaches you technique, musicality and theory. In a short period of time, I have been able to progress more than I have previously with other teachers. She is very understanding and sets achievable goals for you. I have been wanting to learn a Chopin piece for a very long time, and I am happy to say, I am slowly tackling the piece with her guidance. My schedule requests were able to be accommodated as well. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an exceptional teacher.+ Read More
Tu Quyen was an absolutely amazing teacher. I've recently got back into piano after a 14-year hiatus and had to start from scratch. She understood and was able to accommodate & adjust my lessons accordingly. She is also one of the only teacher I've had that teaches me how important it is to connect with the piano and the songs as the pianist. Highly recommended!+ Read More
Tu Quyen was excellent. She read the information I sent her on my experience and interests, and fine-tuned my lesson exactly to my taste and level.
For example, I mentioned at the beginning of the lesson that I would like to learn music theory to aid my practicing, and she incorporated it into the lesson immediately. She even gave examples using ballet, which I had mentioned in my bio.
Tu Quyen is kind and friendly, and her lessons are pleasant and productive.
Tu Quyen loves kids and knows how to bring the best out of them. My son just turned into 6 and is a little shy. But he was confident at taking her lessons all by himself and made amazing progress in less a year. I am looking forward to his another year of happy piano lessons.+ Read More
Tu Quyen is a wonderful teacher. She is qualified, talented and devoted. My 12-year old loves her. My 19-year old college student still takes lessons with her when he's home for the summer and for the holidays. I highly recommend Tu Quyen.
Tu Quyen has a warm, patient, and generous teaching manner. She is a wonderful teacher both for younger kids and adults, and I experienced her teaching from both perspectives, for myself and my son.
I highly recommend her for those who are serious about learning the piano, and those who want to learn and enjoy music the correct way, as she emphasizes not only technique but also the connection of the music to the person's heart and mind. I could not ask for a better teacher.
Could not have asked for better.......
Ms. Tu has been working with my daughter for two months. My daughter, who tried piano before and quit, has practiced every day. Not missing one! She is so excited to work with Ms. Tu and we have had nothing but great things to say about her thus far! My daughter is 13, a singer who wants to accompany herself. She is doing fantastic!!! Ms. Tu makes her want to work. She is extremely encouraging!!!
