Joan graduated from her Grade 8 ABRSM Piano exams in 2007 (Practical), Grade 4 AMEB Violin exams in 2007 (Practical), and Grade 5 ABRSM Theory exams in 2004. Through this, she understands the challenges involved in taking music exams and is passionate about guiding her students through this process in the most stress-free and fun-loving way!
