MAM has been in the Bay Area for 20 years and specializes in group class for children age 3 and up: toddler classes, beginner piano, violin, flute, guitar and Ukulele classes/1-1 private. Since 2001, our classes are listed under the activity guild of 12 cities, such as Palo Alto, Cupertino, Fremont.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
-Materials are optional -Full-size 88 keys digital piano provided (every student will have her/his own piano during the class) -Parent’s participation required -Student’s happy mood and enthusiasm needed!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
MAM started a studio from an apartment 20 years ago. Since I realized the group training would be more beneficial than private lesson, in 1997, the group class started in home garage. Later, MAM began the first campus business in Cupertino. Fremont and Palo Alto campus began due to many referrals.
What do you love most about your job?
Teacher is not only an excellent educator but a good observer. It is fun and surprised to see how children improve and how they get to another milestone. Also, MAM has special program that teachers would co-teach which makes the job much funnier since teachers can learn from each other.
