I grew up playing the piano and took lessons as a child for 10 years. I played on and off as an adult but not for the past 5 years. Yuen Yee has made playing the piano again fun. She is focusing a lot with me on how to enhance the musicality of what I play and different techniques to play with the right dynamics and energy. Highly recommend her!Oct 17, 2017Verified
Yuen Yee has been teaching our son piano and clarinet for the last 6 years. He has learned to read notes and enjoy playing music. All wouldn’t have been possible without her wonderful teaching technique supported by her calm personality and patience. Thank you Yuen Yee!Jan 19, 2018
Yuen Yee was my teacher for about two years she was an excellent teacher who was very attentive to detail. I am an adult student (33 y/o). Yuen Yee is a great teacher. I remember thinking I was going to come in and “wow“ her with all of the practicing I had done and playing the piece perfectly but she would dissect it and find so many opportunities to improve it further. Having a teacher with that kind of knowledge and understanding of music is why I learned so much more with her help that I could have on my own. I began to perform publicly after she helped me land a gig. I highly recommend Yuen Yee!!Jan 17, 2018
Yuen Yee Richardson has a great space set up for lessons, and is usually flexible with meeting times. Very understanding and patient. She's always cheerful, and has a contagious passion for music and nurturing musical talent.Jan 17, 2018
Yuen has been really great to work with. She is flexible in her scheduling, very patient with my limited abilities in the piano and my occasionally spotty practice regimen, always friendly and cheerful, and, as far as I can tell with my still-limited knowledge base, really knows her stuff. I am definitely improving under her tutelage, and look forward to having my daughter start taking lessons with her when she turns four.Jan 29, 2018Verified
