Perfect! My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Utako and made good progress on her piano pieces.

Indya

Perfect! Utako is an excellent and very knowledgeable piano teacher. She is very friendly, encouraging and patient and makes the lessons really enjoyable for me. I am a beginner but after only a few lessons we are already discussing preparing for the Grade 1 exams. I would highly recommend Utako for any looking to learn the piano.

Utako's response

Great work so far! We can definitely aim for grade 1 this summer and possibly grade 2 during this year!

Kevin

Perfect! Utako is extremely friendly and accommodating. She’s a great teacher and very patient.

I would highly recommend her as a tutor!

Utako's response

Great job! His focus is great and sense of melody is wonderful. Rhythm can be improved by playing rhythm game and clapping hands, counting while he plays the piano.
