JOANNA ZHU

Music has played a significant role in Joanna's life. She started piano at 3 years old, and attained her AMusA piano certification at the tender age of 13 - a very high level diploma that many adults do not succeed with. She's formed a special connection with piano and loves to help others create the same bond. She enjoys calm and mentally stimulating activities – a pen and a journal are her best friends but you can also find her dancing for hours with friends!
