It has been 8 months since we started the JMC 1 courses. We absolutely enjoy the class and learned quite a lot. Now my child can play with both hands, and the classes are very interesting, embraced with piano playing, singing, solfege learning, and ear training. The course is very well designed, and the teachers are excellent, professional and patient.
