Co-founders of Vivo Music & Arts Academy, Vivian and Viola Tan have each maintained a private piano studio for more than 10 years at their home studios. They have helped many young children succeed in their works through music education. They are also active members of the Georgia Music Teacher Association and have chaired various music festivals and competitions. Many of their students have excelled in various auditions such as NDMTA Sonata/Sonatina competition and Bach competition. Many have also received judges awards in festivals and high scores in the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) exams. By extending the instruction of various instruments taught by high quality instructors, Viola and Vivian are inspired to provide the best music education for children in the area thus encouraging musical success in each individual.
We believe music education is an essential part of every person’s well being. The journey of making music builds discipline, character, perseverance, memory capacity, and time management. We also believe students learn in different ways and styles; no one method fits all students. Our goal is to maintain trustworthy relationships with students and parents by providing quality personalized instructions in a friendly and comfortable environment.
