Sho-Jen is a really kind piano teacher and since she has taught me, my piano playing has improved dramatically. Pupil A, aged 10
Sho-Jen is a fantastic teacher. She is extremely experienced and supportive. If I ever have a question, she is happy to answer it and help me overcome any problems. I enjoy my lessons with Sho-Jen because they are not too serious, and great fun. I look forward to each lesson every week. I am especially pleased with Sho-Jen's teaching because she recently helped me to achieve a distinction at grade one! Pupil H, aged 17
Our son decided to take up the piano with Sho-Jen during sixth form. They immediately developed an excellent rapport and he enjoys his lessons immensely. Within 18 months he achieved a distinction in his Grade 1 exam and will be sitting Grade 4 soon. He has also just sat his ABRSM Grade 4 theory (gaining another distinction) with a view to sitting Grade 5 in a few months time.
All this development led to him achieving an A grade for his AS Extended Qualification Project (which involved him producing a 3 track album from scratch) and he is now applying to University to study Music Technology. All this would not have been possible without the support, encouragement and dedication given by Sho-Jen. We would thoroughly recommend her as a music teacher to students of all ages. Parents of H, aged 18
I just want to say a huge thank you for your time and patience with R. She has really enjoyed piano and it is so lovely to hear her playing at home out of enjoyment (anyone who comes round has to listen!!) rather than because she has to. I credit you for this. We can really see how far she has come. Hopefully the next teacher will be as good!!!. Parent of pupil R, aged 6
Sho- Jen has been teaching my son since he was 5 years old. She is very patient and has lots of experience teaching young kids. My son enjoys playing piano and achieved distinction for his grade 1 test recently! Parents of L, aged 7
My twin boys really enjoy learning piano with Sho-Jen and are keen to meet her every week, which, for us, is the best indicator of a good teacher for children at early age. Sho-Jen has impressed us by being kind, thorough, patient and sympathetic. Parents of pupils B & M, aged 4
We are very happy with Sho-Jen's lessons. She's very patient with our daughter and, at the same time, shows ambition for the years to come. Parent of A, aged 4
We've been really delighted at how E has progressed with the piano and how much she loves to play. She started piano lessons with Sho-Jen when she was 4 and now a year later she has completed her prep test and is currently working on her Grade 1. At the moment E is learning some fun tunes for Christmas which she can play for her class at school. Sho-Jen is an excellent teacher for young musicians as she is gentle and kind, and my daughter really looks forward to her lesson each week. Parents of E, aged 5
Sho-Jen is a nice kind lady and my piano lessons are fun. I love my lessons because I really enjoy learning the piano. Pupil E, aged 5
I am really pleased not only with the progress my daughter is making, but also with the enthusiasm she has in her lessons. Sho-Jen is a very professional teacher who makes learning fun! Parents of A
I really like having Sho-Jen as a teacher. She is a great teacher and she is making all my learning really enjoyable. Pupil A, aged 8
