"Being a part of the AGY Piano Studio has really made a positive impact on my piano playing and experience with music in general. Now I look forward to practicing every day. With plenty of opportunities such as performances, masterclasses and competitions, the supportive environment of the studio makes a welcoming environment for every piano student regardless of where they are in the learning journey."

"Amelia is a very talented, patient and knowledgeable piano/music teacher. As an adult learner, she doesn’t only teach me how to play the piano precisely, but she also encourages me to dig out my own thoughts and playing style, which is super helpful and inspiring. In terms of techniques and skills, she shared her experience and knowledge with me about body gestures, tone colours, and memorizing tips, etc.. Overall, she is a wonderful teacher and I enjoy working with her!"
