Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

I’m passionate about music education and I am a full time music teacher and active performer throughout the SE Michigan area. I love to collaborate and have had the privilege of collaborating with new artists on new works, as well as premiering new works as well internationally in England and Portugal.

Lessons are designed and catered around each student and I believe in a well rounded approach in teaching music. You will learn many topics throughout music theory, aural theory, and music history to understand the inner workings of different genres of music.

I hold a Masters in Piano Performance from the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, London and a Bachelors in Piano Performance from the University of Michigan.

Whether you’re looking to learn a new hobby, or further your musical skills, I’d love to help out. All levels welcome!

Do you need help making steady progress and finding better solutions for your specific needs? I was a student who for 25 years had my fair share of struggle with practicing and progress. I get it! I am now a professional violinist and teacher of 11 years. Together, we will set realistic goals that you can implement successfully at home on your own time. I invite students of all ages, and of all levels (beginner-advanced). I hope to bring to you not just an improvement in your violin playing, but an enhanced sense of self and creativity through music making.

I took lessons from Yurie on violin as a secondary instrument when I attended Yale University. Yurie was an amazing teacher. I advanced more in half a year with her than I had ever learned in 4 years with other teachers. I only wish I had found her sooner! Her teaching approach is accessible, and very insightful. 10/10 would recommend.

Franz Liszt's Piano Studio Desk & Other Ways Composers Capture Their Ideas

Franz Liszt (1811 – 1886) was a virtuoso pianist and composer, and generally recognized to be the one of the greatest of all time. To help him with his composing, Liszt had a custom desk built which had a small piano keyboard built into the middle drawer. It was built by a manufacturer called Bösendorf, and it is currently on display at the Franz Liszt Museum in Budapest. These days, many aspiring musicians have similar set ups in their compositional studios. We still use the same musi …
