“Dr. Song is a very inspirational piano teacher. After taking this class, I’ve grown to love playing the piano!-not just for grade. She has incredible patience and knowledge. I enjoyed every piano lesson taken with her. I grew so much musically and personally through her teaching!”

“Dr. Song is an amazing teacher- the best I have ever had! She was so insightful and really cared about my progress in piano. She always gave me good advice on how to improve my playing and I have substantially improved with these tips. She showed that she believed in me as a pianist and person by always encouraging me. This helps my confidence in piano and in myself.”

“Dr. Song is An exceptional teacher. I love coming to class and feel let down when the class was cancelled by weather. I am no virtuoso and I love THIS CLASS! Her enthusiasm and vivacity brighten even my darkest day.”
