Perfect! Utako is extremely friendly and accommodating. She’s a great teacher and very patient.
I would highly recommend her as a tutor!
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.
Utako is an exceptional and skilled teacher who takes an individual approach and tailors the lesson towards the needs and goals of the learner in various genres and areas of music. I highly recommend taking her lessons as you will gain a lot of knowledge through a fun, interesting and educational way!
