My daughter Emma loves the piano lessons with Ms Julie. She looks forward to come back to the next lesson even before she leaves the studio. Ms Julie creates a supportive rather than a competitive learning environment. She works with each individual student based on his/her own interest and pace, and she knows how to connect to a student. This connection motivates Emma to practice, and furthermore the pieces that Ms Julie picks for her are so beautiful that she won’t get bored when playing it over and over. The duet part is an enjoyment for both Emma and myself. But it doesn’t mean that the lessons are any less of a challenge. As a “piano parent” who also happens to be an adult student of the studio myself, I can see Ms Julie’s lessons covers a broad range of techniques such as articulations, breath, pedal, and more. All the techniques are introduced even from the very first lesson! This is Emma’s first piano experience. I’m happy to see that after the initial “honeymoon”, her interest on piano is still growing. For me, her smiles after playing a piece says everything.
