Student Testimonials


I have had an incredible 10-year journey with Ms. Ko as my piano teacher. After two concerto performances with the Winston Salem Symphony and the Tar River Symphony Orchestra, numerous competition  awards, and  countless recitals under Ms. Ko's instruction, I have gained the drive and confidence not only to make music an inseparable part of my life but also to succeed in college and beyond.

Not only has Ms. Ko taught me how to play/perform the piano, but she has also helped me learn to be patient and to persevere. I am grateful for that because these traits will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Throughout my many years of learning with Ms. Ko, she has taught me so many important lifelon skills that go hand in hand with playing piano. I'm very luck to have had her as a mentor.

Ms. Florence Ko has taught me much more than just playing piano, such as analyzing pieces. She has helped me win countless local, state, national, and international competitions. I am very thankful that Ms. Ko is my teacher and I cannot wait for the years to come.

Ms. Florence Ko's dedication to her students is unparalleled. I have been her student for five years and have benefited immensely. My only regret is that I did not start learning earlier from her. She made me realize my true potential and allowed me to challenge myself. This work ethic has also helped me immensely in my other endeavors. My love of playing the piano is something I will now continue no matter where I go. Ms. Ko's teaching style, though strict, is essential if one wants to truly appreciate the nuances of classical piano music. Thank you, Ms. Ko.
