A very thoughtful surprise gift from my students at a recital!
You are an awesome piano teacher! Every time I am with you it feels like I'm with family, especially when you help me with any music troubles I have. You are honestly the best piano teacher I've ever had.

My daughter Charlotte was Jean's student for 4 years in New York. She started piano at age 4 & has made tremendous progress under Jean's teaching. Jean is wonderful with children as she is patient and kind. In the years that we've known her, she has gone above and beyond to help her students to achieve their potential. Jean is in tune with the strengths and weaknesses of her students and works with them accordingly. I strongly recommend Jean as a piano teacher.

I have been studying with my teacher Ms. Park for about five years now. I really like the way she teaches me because she is always very focused and stops to help me. Also, she is very skilled. Every time I learn a new piece even if she hasn't seen it before she can play it fluently.

My daughter Philina is very lucky to have a piano teacher who she simply adores. Since she was 4, Philina has enjoyed every hour-long lesson with Jean, and she always has a big smile on her face during the lesson (unfortunately, not always in practice time). Jean has a magical way of engaging young children, while inspiring them to go extra mile. Thanks to Jean's constant encouragement and vigorous teaching, Philina is accepted to Manhattan School of Music Pre College and will be one of the youngest piano major students at the age of 6. Nickita, Philina's 3-year-old sister just started piano lessons with Jean, and guess what, she loves playing piano with Jean too and can't wait for her turn to climb onto the piano bench every time Jean visits. We can't thank her enough for making music learning such joyful and productive experience for our girls.

Thank you for teaching me to play the piano. You are the best teacher in the whole world! You could be famous because you are so good at playing the piano! I really love you!

My children, ages 8 and 12, studied piano with Jean for approximately four years up until June 2016 and in that time, we have seen so much growth and improvement in their piano skills. Not only is Jean a wonderful teacher, she has the patience to work with children and adults of all ages. She has instilled in my children a love and appreciation for piano. Jean also has the right balance of being firm, while at the same time, making it fun.
Jean genuinely has a passion for teaching. She's completely focused on the lesson at hand and often times goes over the allotted time to work with the children. Jean arranges at least 2 recitals per year and it's really a wonderful opportunity to see all the hard work throughout the year come into fruition. I would highly recommend Jean as a piano instructor for all skill levels and my children miss her immensely!

There’s a difference between those who claim to be an ideal instructor, and those who actually are. Throughout the city you may find hundreds if not thousands of “piano teachers”. With so many pianists on-board, it is hard to find one whom is legitimate. I’ve came across those who knew less theory then I, as well as a select few who could not even play at my level.
During my free trial lesson (who can honestly pass up anything free!) with Jean, she not only fixed my technique, but she managed to reignite my ambition to playing. Being an individual whom has one of the most optimistic/kindest personalities, I found it surprising that Jean is no pushover; she is also strict and demanding to the most minuscule details when playing. In other words Jean has the ability to take what seem to be 2 opposing attitudes in order to; not find a middle-ground, but rather create a new entity; her own method of teaching, I’ve improved more in 3 months then I did in years with other teachers.
I couldn’t be any happier with my progress, and all my thanks can go to Jean Park.
Jean is the best piano instructor we have ever had so far. She is generous, responsible and understanding. Most of all, she really cares about her students. Her passion for music is inspiring. Her patient and unique teaching approaches for young kids have greatly helped my daughter make progress in her performance. We are feeling so lucky to have her. We want our daughter to follow her steps to become a talented, intelligent and passionate piano performance artist. We just love her!

I like to take piano lessons with you. You are very nice and you help a lot. When I don't know things you don't tell me the answers but you help me to understand. I have lots of fun at my lessons.

I think the best part of your teaching was your spirit and the way you treated us. You were very caring and you always tried to teach us to practice, because you cared about us, and wanted us to be successful.
