“I have retained Ms. Ayumi to teach my eight year old daughter piano three months ago. She is pure joy. My daughter was reticent about piano after learning from a teacher who was not a good match for her, and she was ready to give up music entirely. Ms. Ayumi quickly showed her all that was joyous and magical about music, and she quickly went from a reluctant student to a very diligent one who never shirks her practice schedule. Ms. Ayumi is so kind and so positive, and really listens to her students. She works hard to find pieces that will make her students happy. We are very blessed to have her in our lives. I am indebted to everyone at Willan Academy for sending her our way.”

Yolanda, a mother of a 9 year old son and 5 year old daughter
“I can’t express with words what an amazing experience this has been for my son. He absolutely loves the guitar class and teacher. The students learn very quickly in a no-pressure fun and hands on environment. Kenji, my son’s teacher has always been beyond magnificent. I highly recommend this school for any family/children who might be exploring music classes…”
