My son left very happy, he wanted to show me what he learned. So far so good
Mrs. Wilma is an amazing instructor. I really enjoyed all of my lessons. I can now play my guitar. Thank you. Bless you.
Wilma is very patient and encouraging. Love her demeanor. I’m enjoying my lessons
Anthony had an excellent first violin lesson with Wilma.
Very professional . Great studio
My 9 year old son just finished 5 lessons with Wilma. He is a brand new piano student. Wilma's gentle style and patience was perfect for him. He already feels more confident about reading notes and playing. I highly recommend Wilma!
My daughter just completed 5 lessons with Wilma. She's wonderful! She took the time to determine my daughter's ability and went from there. She has a gentle but firm nature which worked well for us. Also, her studio is super clean! I would definitely recommend Wilma!+ Read More
Wilma continues to make piano fun for both of my kids.
Once again, the parents aren't allowed to go in with teacher while class is in session. So as the parent I'm not really sure what goes on in the actual class. My daughter likes it, she said's she wants to continue so her father and I will allow her to do another round of lessons. No she hasn't sung anything for us lol but from what I have seen Ms. Wilma seems very nice. The only thing I don't like is the very minimum feedback that is given when my child does come out of the class. L+ Read More
My daughter just started with Wilma and from my understanding her father couldn't go back with her while she did her lesson. To rate it from my 7yr old, she enjoyed her lesson, she has been singing and practicing around the house. So I think it's safe to say the lesson went good!+ Read More
My son loved the lesson. Thanks Wilma!
Things are going well so far and school had started so I'm going to continue and see.
Solomon enjoyed his lesson and he is excited to continue.
Ms. Wilma is absolutely amazing! My children have learned more in their first three lessons then they have for the past 3 years with someone different!
I really like the lessons I'm taking with Mrs.wilma and it's coming along good so I thank her for what' we're practicing and progress on my voice.
Wilma is very nice, patient and knowledgeable.
Wilma is a patient teacher who works really well with my daughter. I have her a 4 out of 5 stars because she didn't let us know about the materials needed before class.
Our experience has been very positive. My granddaughter is making good progress and is enjoying lessons. She has only had four lessons, but is doing well. The teacher is very encouraging and low key.

Very patient and keeps the kids interested.
My daughter loves her lessons with Wilma! She really liked how Wilma helped her with her vocal range. Great teacher!
This first lesson was very good. This was all about finding out what my daughter has learned thus far in playing her instrument. The instruction was very clear and the location was easy to get to. She was even given exercises to practice at home for the next lesson. Over all, I am very pleased with this first lesson.+ Read More
My daughter was the youngest student she had ever worked with and she did a great job! Wilma was very patient and concise. She was skillful at identifying how my daughter learns and capitalize on that.
Ms.Wilma is awesome! She is patient and knowledgeable in Violin. Her expertise helped to identify that the music store provided our daughter with the wrong size violin. Once that was corrected, her playing got better. Our daughter, 4 years old, loves Ms. Wilma and is very excited for each lesson with her.+ Read More
Wilma is a wonderful instructor. She is extremely patient and will go over the materials until the student understand and can play the lesson as required. I was able to sit and observe her in the lesson and was able to assist my son when he was practicing. She is always prompt and ready to go when we arrived. We never had to wait she was always prepared. My child is 6 and Wilma was able to get him focused on what he needed to do in class and he was able to replicate the lesson at home.+ Read More
Music Theory and Music Performance
Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.
She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music.
Very Helpful,Intuitive And Patient Teacher
My son has improved tremendously since taking piano lessons from Ms.Bandong.She is very pateint and has used clever ways to inspire a child to want to learn and show interest in music.I consider her a great help. My son recently had a recital he performed at and did exceptionally well thanks to his instructor Ms.Bandong.He is very eager to learn when he goes home and very motivated to practice.
I would greatly recommend this instructor to anyone who wants to learn to play the piano or has a child interested in taking lessons and the piano. Thanks alot for all of your help Ms.Bandong.
my kind of teacher
initially, I was reluctant about entering into the program. I thought the traditional mode of instruction always the best. it all changed when I wanted to try learning the more unconventional way. it was an experience having Wilma for my teacher in Singing. she has way of making lessons so easy to learn. I admire her for the patience and for adjusting to my level as a beginner. seldom people find teacher who has the proficiency to make hard lessons understandable and easier. more so I like her style developing a more open teacher-student relationship where I feel free asking questions and clarifications pertaining to matters no clear to me as a student I felt her passion to her craft. all in all I cannot question her credibility as a music teacher especially in the area of singing which happens to be my interest. I loved the manner she presented the lessons. she made them adaptable to the situations. It was really an experience having her for my music teacher. my perspective has changed. though I started on a very low note, she made the lessons so interesting to look and study at. here is hoping I would still have better chances learning especially the voice lessons and with her as my coach, then, I fervently believe it is possible.
