Any daughter has been taking piano here and we love it ... The director of the program is great and so easy to communicate to via email or phone. Would highly recommend for any parent looking for enrichment classes (they have mandarin, art, chess and more)! We drive from Hoboken weekly to Brighter Bee because they are so good.

With high quality teachers and well designed programs, Brighter Bee is one of the best places in Jersey City for aftercare and enrichments. There are Art, Music, Drama, Math, Chess, and a lot more classes offered. And the Chinese Program is fun and engaging, perfect for young kids to explore.

My daughter has her Chinese, Maths and piano class there. They have fantastic teachers and all the teachers and staffs are very nice and responsible. I highly recommend Brighter Bee Academy.

Liyan X.

I highly recommend this after school! They have great programs every day.
Teachers are warm and kind, so my child love them. My child is not a native Chinese speaker, but the teachers are so enthusiastic and attentive that he is able to speak a little Chinese just by attending the school once a week. This school is just amazing. 

Miyako S.

The one-on-one piano class is phenomenal. Mr. Qi Zhang is best. He balances well between techniques and musicality, and is able to train students to the Precollege level of any music conservatories. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is serious on piano.

Lotus H.

Have to say they've got impressive class designs and a really warm space. Also, it's quite rare to see in-person Chinese classes in Jersey City, where the Asian people are growingly a large group of residents. Glad to know about this place and their diverse programs for this community.
