Testimonials

See why my students love playing the piano:

“Yen is a wonderful piano teacher. She has been teaching my son for 5 years. Yen understands children well and is able to teach them accordingly. My son was not interested in piano initially but with Yen’s motivation, persistence, and individualized teaching…..my son now LOVES playing the piano. Yen is also a very organized piano teacher, and I can find notes on what she teaches and what homework my son needs to work on. Overall, I can say that my son not only found a good piano teacher, but he has found a friend in Yen, and he sure loves the musical rewards that she presents for all the hard work put in.”

“I’m so grateful for having a talented, funny, and caring person like Miss Yen as my daughter’s piano teacher. The piano was my daughter’s first instrument and the amazing progress she made in less than two years with Yen as her teacher is truly amazing. My daughter was always excited for lessons since the beginning and Miss Yen contributed to that by always being supportive and positive. She was able to bring out my daughter’s love for music and help her to become a great pianist in a short time. Yen is a patient teacher and her commitment is evident. I highly recommend Yen to any adult or child who wants to learn to play the piano.”

“Yen is the nicest, sweetest, most humble, experienced, and professional pianist I know. She is amazingly patient with my kids. My kids summarize her in one sentence, “Yen believes in us and is exceptionally wonderful at encouraging us to do nothing but our best.” Yen has great listening and communication skills and is readily available to answer questions and address any concerns I may have. She is very accommodating and helpful at all times. Very recently, when Yen learned that my sister was getting married, she went above and beyond not only teach my kids to play the song “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” as recorded by Haley Reinhart, but also performed piano and violin duet with them. What a humbling experience it was. My children’s piano knowledge and skills have tremendously been enhanced. 

Yen, it’s such an honour to have the boys play piano/violin duet with you. Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put into getting my children where they are now. I am extremely proud of how well the boys are playing and couldn’t have asked for a better piano instructor. Thank you!”

“We are very fortunate to have Yen as our daughter’s piano teacher.  Right from the beginning she was a big help, be it what music books to buy or where to get them and to accommodating our daughter’s busy schedule.

Yen not only took on the task of teaching our daughter to play piano, but also showed the rest of our family a passionate side of music that we have not seen before. We all fondly remember going to Alberta College Conservatory of Music where Yen was involved in their annual music fundraiser concert. We never knew that Yen could sing as well as play the piano. It has been about 5 years since we met Yen and our daughter has improved tremendously. Yen has been such a great influence, always smiling, positive attitude, infinite patience, and talent galore.  That is our Yen.

We would be glad to recommend her to anyone that needs a great piano teacher and mentor.”
