Personal Statement

Welcome to visit the studio of Dr. Wu!
Piano playing is an ability after both physical and intellectual efforts. It is hard work but enjoyable, challenging but rewarding. Piano study is a commitment for both the student and the teacher. I enjoy working with my students of all ages. No matter you are a 7-years old beginner, or a music lover longing to play, or an ambitious young pianist, I would love to share with you my experience in music!
