Hi everyone! My name is Anjin, and I have been teaching piano and voice for six years. I recently completed my Master’s of Music in Vocal Performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), and I am currently working towards a Professional Studies degree in Opera at CIM. I have studied piano intensively for twenty years, and I specialize in the Taubman Technique, which is a method of playing that eliminates technical difficulties so that one can focus primarily on music making. I also use this method for retraining piano players who are injured from repetitive stress syndrome.
One of my main goals in teaching is to build up my students’ knowledge and confidence so that they can come to a point where they make their own informed musical decisions. This comes from the careful and individualized nurturing of each student’s needs during the lesson times, along with a healthy dose of encouragement and constructive criticism. Additionally, this is aided by instruction on the most healthy, natural techniques possible for both voice and piano. This enables the student to focus on his musical creativity, which I believe to be the most important and fun part about making music!
My vocal experience includes over 10 leading soprano roles in operas in the past four years. I have studied under Metropolitan Opera sopranos Judith Haddon and Jane Eaglen, as well as Dr. Mary Schiller, Vinson Cole, and the famed coach George Darden.
As for piano, I took lessons for 20 years and studied under Yoriko Fileke, Robert Durso, Victoria Squicciarini, and Edna Golandsky. I performed Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 14 with an orchestra, and won various competitions.

I have love and a great passion for music. I have been a musician for over 30 years, I have been a private instructor in piano, organ and voice for 10 years. I have trained and arranged music for several choirs and musicians. I have been music administrator for the church I attend for 12 years. I have instructed children's music classes at The Cleveland Clinic Children's Rehabilitation Hospital. I have toured with choirs, soloist, and musicians in the United States and Canada. I play for weddings and am currently on staff as a musician at a Funeral Home.
I am a graduate of Evans Academy of Music in Buffalo, New York. I have studied music at Cuyahoga Community College.
I specialize in teaching and performing Country, Blues, and Rock n Roll (to name a few) along with a variety of other musical styles. Because of my experience and educational background, I am able to help my students learn what they "need to know" in order to play the songs they want to play. Students will benefit from my unique teaching methods. I won't waste any time learning things that don't apply to your personalized objectives. You tell me what you want to be able to do and I will teach you what you need to know to get there.
Here is some more information about my experience and educational background.
I’ve been a working musician almost my entire adult life. I’m a student of the guitar as well as a teacher.
Here is a little about my background. I started teaching guitar lessons to a few students in my home in 1978. Wow can’t believe it was that long ago. That led me to teaching private guitar lessons at two different music stores as well as guitar class for an adult continuing education program. After a run of 15 years and graduation with a Masters degree in Adult Learning and Development I became a serious student of the guitar studying around the country and in Canada. During this entire time I performed as a working musician in several bands. I’m currently the leader of three different musical groups performing locally and mostly on weekends. I have a easy going personality and a user friendly teaching style tailored to the students individual needs. But most of all I just enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge and experience with others.

I've been playing guitar and singing professionally for about 20 years. As a family man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time.
I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experience on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute.
I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.
No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.
Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.
