Sonya is an incredibly gifted pianist. It’s rare to find someone on such a level and, even harder still to find someone that can teach and share that wisdom. Couldn’t be happier. My daughter is loving piano with Sonya.Jan 26, 2020Verified
Wow. Sonya Lee is truly an expert at a caliber above most. We started with music appreciation lessons and she also helped me decide on how to approach my future purchase of an instrument. I feel privileged to work with her.Jan 12, 2020Verified
Never in my long arts career have I met an instructor as exceptionally talented, encouraging and patient as Sonya Lee. All of my immediate family took piano lessons with Sonya. She taught each of us with the individual style we needed, and Saturday mornings with Sonya brought joy and music to our home for many years. Anyone who takes lessons with this uniquely gifted instructor is so fortunate. 5 stars isn’t enough!Jan 18, 2020
Sonya is simply amazing! I just love her energy, her spirit, and her patience as she enthusiastically engages in each lesson. She inspires and challenges me . I would certainly recommend her to any one who has always wanted to learn piano but never got around to it, like myself. Better late than never. I’m enjoying every lesson as my journey in this musical adventure continues!Jan 9, 2020
Ms. Lee is a wonderful piano teacher. She teaches not only solid piano skills but she shows a lot if passion in music and teaches music how it should be. Ms. Lee also plays the piano beautifully. From the tone she produces when she plays the piano, you could hear the beautiful tone and feel the right style. Ms. Lee provides the insightful musical interpretation so the student would understand the music style while practicing and performing the piece.Jan 13, 2020

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Standard Lesson Rates (Beginner/Intermediate Levels): 30 minutes - $60 45 minutes - $80 60 minutes - $100 Advanced/Expert Lesson Rates (Advance level students, students preparing for competitions, auditions, and/or college and conservatory entrance exams/professionals) 60 minutes - $150 90 minutes - $200 *Travel fee applies when I travel to a student's home.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I attribute a great deal of the success I have with my students to having shared goals, and being a good match in personalities. This is why I request all prospective students to schedule a trial lesson. The trial lesson is 30 minutes, and is conducted just as a regular lesson. This gives the student a chance to see what the lessons are like, and a chance for me to assess the student's level, strengths, and areas for growth before we decide to work together. I use a variety of books and materials, and customize each student's curriculum. **All adult students are required to schedule a complimentary trial/evaluation via Skype or FaceTime to be considered for acceptance.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?The Juilliard School (Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance) Primary teachers: Emanuel Ax and Oxana Yablonskaya
