Check out what current and past students have to say:
"My daughter took piano lessons from Ms. Joy from ages 10 to 12 and absolutely loved her teaching style and enthusiasm with teaching piano. Ms. Joy is sweet, firm, and clear. Her lessons are well-planned and well-organized. She is great at having her students engaged in the process of learning, asking them questions, encouraging them to tell her what they think about the pieces they are practicing, and explaining what she would suggest to improve and why. She is an active member of professional associations for piano teachers, and constantly updating her knowledge and teaching skills. She applies new teaching techniques (e.g., group lessons) and tools (e.g., smartphone apps) to motivate her students to enjoy practicing the piano. She is a wonderful teacher and mentor."

"Joy Morin is a great piano teacher. She is patient with children and adapts her teaching method and content to suit the ability and temperament of the student. She not only taught our son how to read and play music, but also encouraged him to experiment with composition and he has now written three original pieces within a year of study with Joy."

"I would highly recommend her [Joy] to anyone. She is extremely knowledgeable. Joy is patient with small children while teaching them and also skilled at redirecting wandering attention spans at that level. Joy reinforces the lesson material with various creative teaching methods. I am so impressed with her dedication and interest in her students. I would consider anyone fortunate to have her as their teacher."

"I was a little nervous to start taking lessons again at the age of 21, but I'm so glad that I did! It was such a great addition to my semester and I wish that I had been able to take lessons from Joy for much longer! She was a pleasure to talk to and work with - she never came across as condescending and was very encouraging, even when I felt like there was nothing to compliment about a piano piece I had played. She gave great constructive criticism and encourage me to learn the notes and style, but more importantly to play well, to add in dynamics and make a piece sound beautiful and musical. I would recommend Joy to all ages and all skill levels. She has so much to offer - she is genuine, kind, patient, and of course, an amazing pianist!"

"Joy Morin is a wonderful piano teacher. She uses great teaching skills and points out everything that needs to fixed so that the next time we play a piece, it is improved. She has a lot of knowledge and useful tricks on memorizing things. I really enjoyed being her student!"
