A teacher of mine once said if you aim for perfection, you get to be pretty darn good. I like to start with a small amount of material that the student can play very well, and use that to refine the basics. By taking a thorough approach (and playing beautiful music), the entire world of piano and music will slowly and surely open up to the pupil.

In my opinion, tone production and rhythm are the major factors that distinguish a great pianist (and make playing the most satisfying), so this is the major focus of our work. I have a very thorough understanding of proper technique and can prescribe exercises that will strengthen one's weaknesses.

I also have a unique background in that I studied jazz improvisation and classical composition, so I understand the inner workings of the music and can improvise in the styles (jazz, classical, baroque, romantic).

I hated piano when my parents first started me, I was secretly hoping that one day something terrible would happen to my piano so that the teach never had to come teach me and made me practice like a hamster on the spinning wheel ever again… After years of struggling and lots of tears, I quit.

Little did I know that I would rediscovered that giant instrument in my teen years, falling hopelessly in love with classical music that later I became a professional pianist… I traveled around playing concerts for years, I’ve always enjoyed sharing my passion of music with people, but I couldn’t stop wondering, why did I hated piano so much when I was young? What if my first piano teach didn’t push me too hard? What if there’s a better way to learn piano…etc. Those questions led me to this ultimate idea: maybe I can be a better teacher for what I’ve gone through.

I started full time teaching in 2018 as a piano instructor at Westminster Conservatory. Piano was secondary instrument for most

About Yihan

I put my kid in front of a piano since age 4, then she quit at 7. “Stunning” was the word in my head first time hearing Yihan playing piano. My daughter heard Yihan’s recording, then told me second day that she wanted to start learning piano again..! Yihan has being her piano teacher ever since. This time, not only my kid committed to it, but also grown so fast, All because of Yihan! I’m very grateful!
Stephanie
I got back at playing piano after 15 years long absence, I’m very lucky to have Yihan as my piano teacher, my piano lessons with her were fun and unforgettable. She is a knowledgeable pianist, she explains the complicates in simple terms. Her approach to teaching is so different than the other piano teachers I had before, I highly recommend her.
Nikita
Yihan is a great pianist and teacher and she has a personal approach for each of her students. She creates a fun learning environment and makes every lesson memorable and productive. Highly recommend!

Has your ex piano teacher made you learn pieces that you didn't want to learn and now you're looking for a new instructor? Look no further as you have come to the right place. I teach exactly what you want to learn, whether it be classical music or a pop song you just heard on Spotify. I've comfortably taught students ranging from the ages of 8-60, so don't be afraid to start at a later age!

About Andrew

Growing up, my dream job consisted of putting a constant smile on people's faces. Upon graduating high school, I started teaching music when I was 18 years old. My boss handed me a couple of students to teach and I drove to their house. I still remember when they were grumpy that they weren't making

Andrew is a responsible and patient teacher. He had experience at the piano skill, theory, and exams. He inspired students at practicing and continually learning. My son loves his teaching session.

Piano shouldn't be boring, it shouldn't just be Bach, and it shouldn't be endless, pointless exercises.

Piano should be fun, interesting, and practical. Theory, scales, and exercises should be helpful, practical, and directly tied into pieces a student is learning, and each student should get the opportunity to work on pieces they're interested in, not just keep to standard repertoire only.

I tailor piano lessons to each student, their goals, and their musical tastes. While I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, students are always welcome to bring in extra pieces to work on or ask for help finding something specific. Every student will learn the basics of sight reading, playing by ear, improvising, and harmonizing--then work more on whatever they are interested in.

As a professional pianist, I will teach practical skills that can actually earn my students money when they get advanced enough, such as reading lead sheets, playing with the timing of a piece, and accompanying
