“Machiko is an amazing teacher! My daughter loves her class.”
“Machiko taught my son a lot in his first lesson. From hand placement to introduction to notes to harmony. Her lesson was fun and informative. She was also very patient with my 8 year old son. I learned a lot from the lesson and am even considering going to her myself.”
“Machiko has been a patient and inspiring teacher for my daughter. She has her very own style and approach which fully engages and motivates my daughter. With a willful and quiet child who doesn't like to practice much, it is important for her to feel understood and Machiko does. With Machiko my daughter is both learning and loving piano. We are so grateful to have found her.”
“My 11 year old wanted to learn how to play anime theme songs on the keyboard. After one lesson with Machiko, my daughter was very excited to read music, learn how to properly put her fingers on the keys, and really improved on the two songs she had taught herself. Then my daughter asked to go to more lessons! I highly recommend Machiko!”
“My 10 year old daughter takes piano with Machiko. She is very positive and nurturing in her teachings: My daughter has gained so much confidence in her skills and I can not wait to see how she will continue to grow.. Machiko has a very calm and warm soul that I believe helps motivate her students. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn music and piano.. also her price is right.. check her out and do a trial!! You will be very happy you did!!! Amazing!”

“Machiko has been my daughter's piano teacher for about 3 years and my daughter loves her! She is extremely patient and excellent at handling kids (even a difficult one like mine)! She thoroughly teaches the fundamentals, but at the same time makes sure to let my daughter have fun and helps to build her confidence to the point where she is motivated to practice on her own! I highly recommend Machiko! ”

“ Machiko proved herself to be a patient, responsive piano teacher for my two children, who were performing at the beginner and intermediate levels. She intuitively understood each of my boys' unique strengths and areas in need of focus. Machiko was professional, reliable and adept at facilitating parent involvement. Our family had a fantastic experience with Machiko! ”

“Machiko sensei was really nurturing to my then 5 years old girl, learning to play and enjoy the piano. She was gentle and fun. We wish she came back to the Bay Area again!”

“Machiko has been teaching my children piano for over a year now. Thanks to her, my children enjoy playing the piano. She has incredible patience, and has a great selection of music. She customizes her teaching based on the needs of the child. My children are always excited to see Machiko for their lesson.”
