"I really enjoyed my time at WAYA!"
- It was a unique experience to join WAYA. To be around many talented and lovely kids was truly a gift this summer. I am a pianist and I was able to just practice and practice. Nervousness and anxiety before performance were something that stopped me from loving and performing in front of others, but the teachers were so supportive and patient. Even though I still felt uncomfortable performing, I was willing to try my best! I learned a lot from the teachers, especially Dr. Han and Dr. Ryu. Everyone's passion and love for music and caring spirits inspired me to keep exploring in the world of music! I really enjoyed my time at WAYA!
