"My daughter looks forward to her piano lessons!"

We could not have found a better piano teacher for our daughter! My piano teacher growing up was an old lady. What we got was a young, enthusiastic, kind person that truly cares about the quality of her work and who can relate very well to kids the age of mine (8 and 10). But what we ended up with was much more. Joy is so much more to my daughter than just her piano teacher- she is a wonderful role model for her as well. Her sheer joy for what she does comes out so clearly and so abundantly that it's contagious. And her independence and clear work ethic leaves such a fantastic impression on my kids. She's positive, encouraging, and kind.

Joy has given my daughter knowledge about how to play the piano that is for certain, but more importantly has instilled in her a certain confidence that I think could only have come through a relationship like this one.
