She even chose her own program.”~ “This is such a good alternative to exams!”~ “My students enjoyed performing to an audience! Their parents enjoyed their children perform, they saw the fruition of their kids’ effort.” “Thank you for organizing the Music Platform for the piano teachers and their students.
