Junie has been teaching my kids for years. They truly enjoyed her lessons. She brings the right amount of firmness and passion to her music and has inculcated the love for music and to try new elements in music in my kids. You will be lucky to have her as a teacher.

All my 3 kids took piano lessons from Junie since they were at primary. Very patient and understanding to the needs of each kids especially my hyperactive son.

Junie was my piano teacher for as long as I can remember. She was very patient, and puts in more effort than any other teachers I've come across. She's supportive and fun during classes. Very focused and caring, and a great handler for children as well!

Junie has been my piano tutor for 7 years since I was 10. She ignited my interest in classical piano by introducing me to a broader range of music genre, including my personal favourite - 20th century classical music. She is a patient, detail-oriented, interesting tutor and a splendid musician. She always breaks down the difficult part, explains and demonstrates the fundamental skills and how to perfect it, without letting me feel overwhelmed by the complexity of the scores. I have very much enjoyed my piano learning journey with Junie. She is definitely your best choice regardless if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced learner!

The teacher’s emotional and imaginative teaching allowed me to explore a different world of music. She also taught me how to integrate my musical skills and use them in performance. I developed new knowledge and cognition. These are rare and valuable experiences.

She was my vocal and piano teacher since I was 5. She is extremely patient and fun to learn from. Her piano skills are incredible and her vocals are just as much as amazing. I would highly recommend her if you're just starting to learn singing or to play piano.

I’ve known Teacher Junie for more than 6 years, she’s not only very experienced in teaching practical, theory, music knowledge and music histories, but also very well experienced in stage performing both piano solo and accompaniment too! Howsoever, a strong foundation is the most important basic for every well-rounded pianist! I learned classical piano with her in my higher grade, all my playings were improved to advance level. There’s a saying, choices are more important than efforts. A correct start, a good teacher will lead and guide you on a correct path of your learning journey towards your goal! If you’re looking for a classical piano or pop piano teacher, Teacher Junie, she’s definitely your best choice! Do not miss it!!

From the ages of 16 till 23, Junie has given me piano, theory and vocal lessons. Never has she failed to amaze me with her talent and personality. If you are looking for a quick grade 1-4 cram session in 3 days, she is the person you are looking for. Not only did she manage to teach me everything, but I also passed all my exams under her without fail.

Junie has been my piano teacher since Grade 5-8, and she's very professional, knowledgeable and cool. She brings the best out of me and never fails to make the class lively. She has helped me improve my piano playing and musicality which I'm grateful for even until today.

Z

She is a responsible teacher, knowledgeable, friendly, and a great person. I think she has all the criteria as a compatible music teacher. I improved a lot in my playing since learning with her and i enjoy the process :)
If you are serious in learning, Ms Junie is definitely your choice.
