Kind words

“My 12 year old son wanted to quit piano lessons two years ago when we moved to Vancouver. I convinced him to meet a few teachers and we decided that Julia was a good fit. Two years later, he is still interested enough to continue playing and to take lessons. Julia is an excellent piano teacher. She is patient, kind and encouraging and she has developed a positive rapport with my son. Julia has made lessons fun and interesting and she has provided a nurturing and motivating environment to a student who is at an age when there are many distractions to deter him from lessons. Julia is a skilled and professional teacher and I am grateful for her pleasant, gentle nature which has created a happy and successful learning experience for my son.”

“Our son has been taking piano lessons with Julia for 4 months, and he enjoys it thoroughly. He is learning a great deal and is already able to play several songs. Julia keeps the lessons fun by having him play songs that he can relate to, thereby wanting to learn more. We can’t wait to see what he can do in a year.”

I am a mature piano student at the Kerrisdale Community Centre. After being absent from playing the piano for 20 years, I was a little apprehensive to start lessons again. Fortunately I was assigned to Julia Villafuerte.
Julia is an accomplished pianist with 20 years of training. She understands what the individual older student wants + needs. With me she had shown great support and encouragement and had revived my interest and love in playing simple classical pieces.In addition she is a very kind and patient person and I highly recommend Julia for the younger piano students as well
