Satoko is not only a gifted, skilled, and amazing piano instructor. She is also patient with her students’ needs. She makes her client feel comfortable and calm. She can redirect her student’s mind to just love music 🎶. Her encouragement always inspires me to just think positive and I can do it. She has an amazing ear. She can hear the single note that is not played properly. She builds my confidence. I am highly recommending her.
Satako was recommended to us by a friend. She was very intentional about teaching my son classically and with good technique. She challenged him each week to improve and with her we have seen the most growth in our son. She is very knowledgeable of the art of music and it is very obvious her love for the piano.
My daughter and I have been doing lessons for a few months via zoom and it’s been nothing short of wonderful. Satoko is so knowledgeable, encouraging and patient and makes learning fun! I highly recommend Joy of Music!
