The students of Wenjen Piano Studios continue their education at some of the top universities and colleges in the nation, including Harvard University, UCLA, U.C. Berkeley, Brown University, Manhattan School of Music, Georgetown, Oberlin, Occidental, Boston College, to name a few! Whether they study music, science, engineering, or the arts, their love of learning and disciplined study habits carry over to a successful college experience. Many students maintain their piano study with me until graduating high school. It is common for my students to study 10-14 years with me until leaving for college. I currently have an adult student that has studied piano with me for 24 years!
