I took lessons with Aya when I was in high school 13 years ago. She was very inspiring and because of her I decided to major in Music. I’m currently finishing my doctorate in Music and I am much indebted to her for exposing me to such a high level of artistry and instilling me with so much confidence at such a young age. I have very fond memories of Aya’s wonderful teaching.

Sulina Baek is a good teacher that I had the fortune of working with over the past 2-3 months. She is patient and gives useful coaching tips to improve technique. At the same time, I never felt overwhelmed with too much information during our lessons. Sulina kept everything manageable and actionable and that helped me make a lot of progress. Thus we often covered a lot of ,music lesson, and frequently ran out of time. She is also very knowledgeable in canon and in theory, which has helped me figure out what standard to aim at during my own practice. Sulina helped me turn my motivation into audible results.

A typical Miss Kirk music lesson is unique because it includes movement, acting, drama, music theory, stage presence practice, singing and fun! I tailor each lesson specifically to the student. When students feel a sense of joy and excitement then learning and expertise follow.

As a public school music teacher, I believe in educating the student as a whole learner. I believe music education helps us learn not only what can be seen, such as music notation, but also what can only be felt. I believe music and the arts connect us to one another and our deepest, truest selves. I believe in music education because it helps the student recognize beauty in the world. I believe music has the power to help and heal oneself at any age. I teach music so that the world we live in becomes a more peaceful and loving place for us to live in solidarity with one another. Let me help you in this journey!

"Miss Fawn is very professional, knowledgable and patient. My twelve-year-old son actually got more out of one lesson with her than from several lessons received by his other Juilliard trained private instructor. After just a few months, I can't believe the high level of music and songs he is playing. Fawn not only makes him master his fingering, music theory, reading notes and his touch, but she gives him a test after each level, without telling him in advance. She says she "wants to know what he's absorbed" and "what's become part of him." Then whatever he can't remember, she focuses on, tests him again after they have covered what he is lacking in and so on and so on, until it all becomes part of him. She also assigns him reading material about different composers and has him listen to one piece each of them have written. Miss Fawn doesn't miss a thing. On top of being an incredible teacher, Her experience, thoroughness, talent, patience, and great personality definitely count and are what I consider music magic for my son. Thank you Miss Fawn."

"This was a great lesson. He knows his stuff and can really develop a person. I did 20 minute lessons to start, but honestly the more time you can the better. He taught me way more than I expected I could learn, but I could tell there's so much more he can do with more time. My lesson was as long as it took to drive there but it was worth it even for how short it was. I'm doing longer next time for sure.
Danny's really great to work with. He's very skilled and I'm glad he's teaching what he knows because I'm pretty sure he keeps himself busy with a lot of projects. I highly recommend lessons with Danny. It's fun and comfortable because he's a great person and funny and easy to be around even if you haven't taking any lessons on singing."
