    I have been taking piano lessons with Vivian over 4 months. Ms. Vivian is very patient and truly understands my strengths and weaknesses. She works on improving my skills by giving assignments/tips that would help. She gives excellent classes to her students. Highly recommended!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I like to get to know the student's history and level of knowledge and abilities first, and then to understand what his or her goal is in learning the instrument.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a bachelor's in violin and piano performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music, one of the best music conservatories in the world.
