My daughter started piano at age 5 with Nobu at the former piano store at Pearl Highlands over 3 years ago. We were devastated to hear the store was closing until Nobu told me she was opening her own studio. My daughter loves taking lessons with Nobu – a huge plus to keep her motivated to both practice and to want to go to her lessons each week. Nobu is great with kids and is also excited to see her students when they arrive. I would be hard pressed to find another teacher who my daughter would love so much… I recommend her wholeheartedly.
