When my son was 4, my husband and I were looking for an age-appropriate lesson to grow his interest in music but didn’t want to get him into a very formal and rigorous piano lesson at that age. We searched for many options until we found out about Yamaha Music School. We liked the fact that JMC program teaches many aspects of music – singing, listening and playing keyboard and thought my son would enjoy it very much.

We were RIGHT! My son has been with Yamaha Music School for 2 years now, learning different music skills: how to read notes, understanding rhythms and music chords, playing both hands on the keyboard and he still enjoys every class. I think what makes the class even more enjoyable is Miss Tania Cheng. She has been my son’s teacher for both years and we really really like her! She is very patient with children and knows how to work with every child. Even when kids start to run out of patience, stop listening and moving around, Miss Tania always finds a way to get their attention with a smile…. She is amazing!
We highly recommend Yamaha Music School and Miss Tania.
