Teaching Talented Students Since 1996

Parent Testimonials


“There is nothing more rewarding than to come home to beautiful music. Our children have been taking piano lessons for approximately 9 years, but they would not have persevered in this pursuit without the love, support and dedication of Ms. Sachiko Jaquez. Thank you for not giving up, and for pushing them year after year to reach a higher goal. We highly recommend SMUSIC for any age and any level.”

She is always professional but patient and kind and works wonderfully with younger kids as well as helps older ones pursue their music goals. Sachiko has an eye for detail that makes the students always feel proud of their accomplishments.”

“Both my kids (age 14 and 7) love their teacher, Sachiko. If a teenager loves her teacher, that says a lot already. She is very warm, cheerful and sweet, yet her lessons are very structured and highly effective! ”

Ms. Sachiko's dedication, attention to detail and professionalism are unparalled in her field. She always has a smile on her face and Samantha is always happy to see her and eager to learn. Her nurturing and caring style is the key to her successful teaching. Her love for music and piano is contagious and Samantha is very fortunate to have her as a teacher and a mentor. ”
