“To whom may concern,

…This year Lucia Wang from Music For Kids Ottawa is her piano teacher. I would like to share some experiences with you. Lucia Wang taught her piano for a year. She is so kind and nice. Since my daughter special needs required, Lucia wang has spent a considerable amount of her energy and time to teach piano lessons step by step, enthusiastically and patiently. Her encouragement brings my daughter on more positive way. With all the progress, it also makes my daughter proud and increases her self esteem.

I strongly support Lucia Wang is an excellent teacher.”

Jennifer Ji - Mother of MFK special needs piano student 2013-2015

“Hello,

Just wanted to give some feedback about our experience so far. Alethia, my 6 year old daughter, is taking piano lessons with Grace Hendrickson-Jones. It's been a wonderful experience so far, Grace is a great instructor- patient, kind, and fun- Alethia really likes her. Alethia has accomplished a lot since her session begun, and though sometimes it gets tough and tears are spilt, she continues to be interested in learning the instrument. We're hoping to continue the lessons for as long as Grace is willing. Thank you for the amazing opportunity!”

Since the expansion of Music for Kids Canada to multiple cities in 2014, we have had the chance to coordinate efforts to increase music

education accessibility in different parts of Ontario. Through the work of all our chapters in that year, we have managed to increase our

impact to a whole new level with even brighter years to come. Among all the dedicated executives in our chapters, there are usually keystone

members that we all know; they are the ones that through their own work, motivate us to make Music for Kids better. We have

chosen to recognize one executive every year since our 2014-2015 season for their truly inspirational contribution.
