Playing music on piano is a beautiful thing to do, while practising piano is sometimes boring. But my daughter doesn’t feel any boring when she’s having piano lesson with Miss Yim. Miss Yim is a very nice and wonderful teacher. She brings fun to piano learning and inspires my daughter’s enthusiasm on piano. With Miss Yim’s teaching, my daughter has improved a lot! She told me, “Mom, I love piano class!” You can imagine how happy I was when I heard that. Loving music, that’s what a good teacher brings to your kid.
Megan is an excellent piano teacher. My two children enjoy learning new skills and theory from her. She is patient and supportive, yet strict at the same time. They practise at home on their own as their homework is enjoyable and manageable. Megan also encourages them to perform whenever possible. She is honest in her feedback and provides constructive criticism on how her students can improve. My children continue to improve in their piano technique. I feel very fortunate to have found such a wonderful teacher for my kids!
