My Musical Influences
My mother was a pianist and teacher, producer and director. She never missed one of my lifelong performances. Positive support in the family is very important.
I'm a frustrated musician-----but someone named Amy Korim came into my life and after 6 months the frustration ended and my music ability improved in leaps and bounds. A wonderful teacher and a lovely lady.
Amy, Has a unique ability to adjust to each student's learning curve. She has given me more in a few months of lessons than most teachers---I'm playing with confidence while playing more complex musical pieces each week.
Mrs. Korim has been my piano teacher for 12 years and she is fantastic! She knows how to cater to any type of student from all ages to ensure that they get the most from each lesson and enjoy the music they play. She works with each student individually and makes sure to give her full attention to them. Mrs. Korim shares her enthusiasm and love for music with her students and inspires them to be better musicians and people. Personally speaking, I originally hated playing the piano but through the many years of lessons with Mrs. Korim, I learned to appreciate music and gained skills that I would keep for the rest of my life. Any student considering Mrs. Korim as a teacher would definitely not regret it!
I have been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Korim for about seven or eight years. I had previously taken lessons from a different teacher, but still had no idea how to read music or count beats. After hearing about Mrs. Korim’s excellent reputation, my parents decided to enroll me in lessons. From the very first day, Mrs. Korim has always been energetic and enthusiastic about teaching me. She used a variety of methods to teach counting, rhythm, and dynamics including visuals, music games, and Youtube videos. If I didn’t understand how to play a measure, Mrs. Korim would use multiple ways to help explain it and made sure that I understood it. Her commitment, dedication, and compassion enlightened me as both a music student and as a human being. Not only did I learn how to play complicated pieces—Beethoven, Chopin, Bach—but I learned how to apply my music skills to real life. For instance, the discipline required to practice and stay committed to piano can be applied to school, work, or a club. I learned many valuable life lessons every Wednesday night when I went to Mrs. Korim’s for piano. She was always very empathetic and practical, and I would not have learned all the things that I did about life and music without her.
West Bridgewater, MA
Mrs. Amy Korim is my piano teacher. In my second year I realized that I was improving as a pianist in ways that I did not think possible. The drive and zest she has for life in infectious. She has been my role model in the way I should approach life. Instead of being discouraged by shortcomings, Mrs. Korim has taught me that you can still learn and make changes. I do my best to incorporate the attitude and discipline I have learned from Mrs. Korim, which is applicable to nearly all aspects of life, not just piano or school.
