Mission and Philosophy
“Our duty is not merely to teach the student how to play well, but also to make the student more intelligent, more responsive, more diligent, and more conscious….” — H.Neuhaus
“…During the one year, Oliver learned a lot from the teachers in your school,
especially his direct teacher – Maryna. Maryna is such a nice teacher and she helped Oliver not only made big progress on piano playing, but also on improving his interests and feelings to music! In addition, each time of the group performance, the annual recital and the top ten showing are great opportunities that helped Oliver a lot to build up his self-confidence and motivation. Oliver always saying that he loves his teachers, he loves Golden Key! As parents, we feel very happy that we made the best choice for our son! Thanks a lot for all the teachers who helped Oliver, you are wonderful!”
Rumi is really enjoying the online lessons actually! His teacher has done a great job and we usually have a laptop set up on the side so teacher can see the piano and Rumi’s hands and an iPad setup (on Zoom too) in front of Rumi so he doesn’t have to look to the side. It has been going really well!
Kyle practices everyday on his own and he is doing great. I’ve asked him how he feels about the online class comparing to in person, and his response was that it’s about the same.
We’re thrilled to hear that Christopher will be able to continue teaching at Golden Key Piano School. Emmett says he’s the best piano teacher he’s ever had; Clara really likes him, too.
The one-on-one Zoom format has been working out very well. In some ways it’s much better than other classes they’ve been in because it’s so direct, and their attention is complete. So thank you again for supporting their ongoing learning.
