"Joyce K is a truly extraordinary teacher. After childhood piano lessons and always “sort of” playing the piano, I’ve been an adult student of Joyce’s for several years. She’s a very accomplished musician on many instruments, who records, composes, and performs. One of the gifts of learning with her is taking in her rich musical mind and experience. So much has opened up for me musically just by working on scales with her, as well as the pieces from Bach, Beethoven, Schubert, jazz. With her guidance, I’ve internalized rhythm in ways that I used to think I couldn’t do. How great to work on rhythm with a teacher who’s also a professional drummer. Touch, phrasing, how to make the music swing, how to practice: our work opening up all of these has been so much fun. I’ve always wanted to be able to improvise. With Joyce, I’m finding how to listen and hear my way into that desire. Joyce meets a student where we are and listens for where we need to go next. She has helped me to connect more deeply than ever before to my own musicality and to great and endless joy in exploring the music for myself, and to share with my loved ones and the fun musical community that Joyce creates among her students. One of my all-time best decisions was to choose to study with Joyce." - An Adult Student in Joyce's Life-Long Learning Music Community
