Daniel B.

Fort Mill, SC

About Daniel

Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I just love music! I have played the piano since I was 6 years old, and was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an piano with a full s
et of 88 keys (acoustical or digital is fine). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.

Daniel is an awesome piano teacher for my 9 year old son. My son just loves him and Daniel understands exactly how to work with him. Daniel is patient and makes the class interesting. Always is prompt and always sends us a text message just before reaching the venue. I highly recommend Daniel.

My compositions include solo and chamber pieces as well as electronic works, symphonic band works, and orchestral works. In 2004 I won the Judith Lang Zaimont award from the International Association of Women in Music.

I love music and enjoy sharing it with others. So whether you are 5 or 90, or somewhere in between, let's have some fun!

Leon Y.

Charlotte, NC

About Leon

Hi there,

My name is Leon and I've been teaching various subject for many years now. Over the years of teaching and through students that I've had, I realized that each student is different so I cater a customized learning plan to each student based on mutual preference and learning needs.

For all the subjects I teach, I have the credentials (certificates, standardized testing results) to prove that I understand the material. But that's not the whole story! Any teacher will tell you just because you KNOW the material, doesn't mean you can TEACH that material. That's where my teaching exp
erience along with my background in Learning Psychology comes into play.

Learning whether to reach a goal or enrich our passions is a lifelong journey. I look forward to walking together and discovering new heights :)
