Sheet Music


We teach our students not only how to play their instrument, but also how to 'learn how to learn' - a critical skill which students can then apply to any field they choose.

Celia is very experienced at teaching young kids violin. My 10-year-old loves Celia's detailed, clear, and meticulous way of teaching and her techniques have improved tremendously in a short period of time, and so has her love for learning violin. While taking violin lessons from Celia, we also learned that Village Youth Conservatory also offers piano lessons taught by an accomplished pianist, ChiWei. We immediately signed up for it and was equally amazed by the inspirational ways of ChiWei's teaching methods.
