I have a Doctorate in Piano Performance and hold a Fellowship in Piano Performance (Special Candidate Award) - the highest music diploma level awarded by Trinity London of College. Currently an after-school piano instructor at the French American International School in San Francisco, I’ve been continuously developing and implementing an innovative, thoroughly integrated basic music history, theory, and aural skills curriculum for approximately 40 students at the age range from 4 to 65. Throughout my 15 years of teaching experience, I have always challenged myself to incorporate creative methods into studio and classroom teaching. I like to make new concepts fun and easy to absorb. While I constantly assign tasks and pose questions that challenge my students to think critically, I am good at presenting my ideas in a relatable yet profound way. Besides setting goals periodically to motivate my students, each week I am able to find new angles and aspects in an old piece to work on. Because I care about what each student can offer differently in their playing, I always provide feedback that brings out their best. I am also open to discussion with students in which they bring in unique, dynamic, and unconventional ideas. As a result, I discover something new from my students daily. “Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” has always been my motto. Ultimately, I seek to encourage students to continue learning in a life-long passion for music.

Playing piano is fun! So should your piano lessons. I've taught piano since I was in high school, and continued to teach while I was a student at Cornell University. I also taught theory classes in the Cornell Piano Society, where I served as President for 4 years. Why? I simply love music, piano, and sharing it with others. While I'm classically trained, I've dabbled into other genres, such as Jazz, Rock, Pop, R&B, songwriting, and music production / audio engineering. I've recently been accepted into the Steinway & Sons (the piano makers) Teacher Partnership Program. Feel free to message me for more details!

I've been teaching piano for 18 years. Within the first few lessons students will be able to read basic music notation and as time goes on they will be able to confidently play beginning songs of their own choosing. I typically use Alfred or Faber books which builds playing skills and teaches music theory.

I began classical piano instruction in 1960 and took private lessons for ten years before branching out into all the other styles of music. I have taught, recorded and performed professionally since 1978, and will show you proper hand and finger technique, music theory, how to read notation and chord charts/symbols, and equally as important teach you how to play by ear. I teach all ages, all styles and all levels of piano, and will teach you how to have fun with it all along the way!

I have been working as a music teacher for 9 years. I have taught violin, viola,beginner piano and singing lessons. I love developing students love for music. I greatly enjoy teaching music students and sharing my love for music with them. Because of my experiences and education, I am able to assess easily what each student needs and how to help them achieve their goals.

In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.
