Hello, my name is Judy Boyum. I teach piano lessons to students ages 4 and older through the Suzuki method, an approach based on the way we learn language — by rote first.

My music studio, located in my southwest Rochester, Minnesota, home, provides a quiet, comfortable place for lessons. I have a well-rounded program that includes several recitals and studio group classes each year.
