“Meng-Chieh presented for two different groups in both our Galleries; he was extremely warm and endearing to all the teachers. He spoke for about an hour and then asked us to have a performer there so he could demonstrate his points for everyone first-hand. It was wonderful! We had so many teachers thanking us profusely for bringing him to Chicago, and they’re all asking when he’s coming back!”

“An excellent instrument is critical in developing artistic ears. Steinway inspires me to search for the ultimate beauty when I perform, and urges me to bring out the best potential in students when I teach.”
