My name is Julia Tang and I am a junior.
I have been taking lessons from Grace Kim for over 1 year, and I have learned a lot in such a short period of time.
With Grace, I learned the fundamentals of the piano and music theory which my previous piano teachers did not teach me. Additionally, she motivates me to practice a lot and do my best to learn as much as I can. I love having her not only as a piano teacher, but as someone I look up to. I'd definitely recommend Grace as a piano teacher because her teaching works, and I believe anyone can master the piano if she is their teacher!

I have been taking lessons with Ms.Grace since the age of 4 and am 14 years old now. Ms. Grace motivates and encourages children to achieve their best through music, while still teaching the knowledge needed to play the piano. She is patient and kind to all who are willing to pick the piano as an instrument they would like to play. I am motivated by Ms.Grace's freedom allowing me to choose the music I would like to play instead of music being forced on me.
I would highly suggest Ms.Grace to parents whose children would want to pick piano up as a hobby or for educational purpose.
