What People Say

I am very impressed about the school and the arrangement for the students recital. It was done very professional and great opportunity for students to work on their performance skill. For that, I really appreciate for the opportunity and the chance to study with Kyle.



…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!


My son has been a student of Katrin for years. He enjoys playing piano immensely and we, too, enjoy listening to his practicing at home. He started piano with a different teacher before we discovered the Golden Key Piano School. That teacher was good with piano, but she was not good with children and my son was about to quit playing. Katrin has made piano fun!

My son really enjoys playing piano now and is getting very good at it. We are very thankful to Katrin.

My daughter has been with Golden Key Piano School since she was 3.5 years old. She started out in their group class then has continued with the weekly private lessons. It is hard to imagine children engaged with something as difficult as learning piano and remaining focused for an hour-long lesson. And yet, not only do the teachers at Golden Key manage to do that, they also make it fun and easy for children to learn music.

My daughter is now eight years old. This year she is playing a Bethoven sonatina and recognzing chords in the other songs she practices. She also has regular performance recitals every month at the school. Yes, every month -- not just every year. So the children at this school get to practice performing in front of other people quite often and regularly. Ear training and music listening are also parts of the curriculum. Should she like, my daughter can also choose to study the pieces other than traditional classical music. Occasionally she also participates in special workshops that the school offers. These workshops are run by masters in the fields and they are extremely helpful, relevant, and engaging.

She is getting the best music education at Golden Key Piano School, world class I dare say. I highly recommend this school to anyone who wants to learn and enjoy the piano.

Thank you so much for taking care of Sormeh. She really looks up to you and listens to you. I am so glad that through you she has definitely taken an interest in advancing herself in Piano.
Thanks so much for continuing to inspire the children,
Have a great day,

Thank you so much for sharing your joy of music with our daughter Camille. She has learned the basics of what will be a foundation for a future of learning. Camille also loved having you as her teacher!
