Poh Hock is a well-rounded and versatile teacher. He is capable in many styles of playing and has a powerful understanding of music theory to reinforce his teaching. He is very patient and relaxed; I never feel stressed preparing for or during lessons. He is able to tailor his lessons more around exercises or learning songs depending on the wants and needs of the students. I've been taking music lessons in different instruments for 10+ years; learning with Poh Hock has singularly been the most positive and productive experience in that time.
Phillip Wrenbeck W.
Poh is awesome. He's super talented and educated in music. He has a great personality and challenges me in a positive way. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
Julian
Poh Hock is a great teacher that really has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. His style of teaching is very precise and methodical. I learned a lot of songs taking lessons with him but more importantly Poh Hock taught me how to practice material that I was working on. The lessons were really more like guided practice sessions. While some teachers that I've had might just use the lesson to teach material and have me practice over the week, Poh Hock used lesson time to really drill sections and get them to sound good. I absolutely recommend Poh Hock as a teacher for anyone who seriously wants to improve their playing and their approach to music in general.

Our piano lessons for beginners start off with orientating yourself properly with the keyboard. The C position is the most common position for playing simple melodies, and is the groundwork for any new piano beginner. In your first piano lesson, you will learn the beginners version of Beethoven's classic, "Ode to Joy", based on the C position.

In this second piano lesson for beginners, you will master the C position from your right hand. Timeless classics such as "Jingle Bells" are learned to help solidify your knowledge as a beginner.

As soon as you can play basic melodies with your right hand you are ready to focus on your left hand. There is also a C position for the left hand that starts one octave below the middle C, and in this third piano lesson for beginners, you will learn this along with Elvis Presley's hit single "Love Me Tender".

Next you will learn the names of keys and the basics of musical notation in this piano lesson. Reading sheet music is the foundation to ...

I've been with Fanjin for almost 2 months now and she is fantastic! I came in with no knowledge of singing what so ever and she has helped me build up my knowledge of singing while also furthering developing my voice. Fannin knows what problems you have with your voice and how to solve them in order to have you grow and become an even stronger singer.

Fanjin is a super constructional and patient teacher while I take lesson online with her as a beginner to singing. She offers effective techniques, advices, and singing drills for me to improve significantly in a relatively short amount of time. She is also very flexible, and overall I enjoyed so much working with her!

Here are the core things that I focus on in Piano lessons.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable

"We loved having Ms. Orlia as our son's first piano teacher! As a boy with special needs (Autism and ADHD), we needed a teacher with patience, energy, experience, and a passion for music. Not only does Ms. Orlia have all of that, but she helped to instill a pride and love for music in our son as well. Her knowledge of piano theory and the inner workings of the piano itself really engaged our son, and he looked forward to lessons every week with Ms. Orlia! She tailored each lesson to his interests and questions, and met him on his level each week. Anyone would be lucky to have Ms. Orlia as their piano teacher!"

"Our 10 year old son began learning from Claudia nearly 3 years ago. We all love her! We weren't sure if he would enjoy learning the piano, but Claudia ignited his interest and he has been very engaged ever since. The hour that he spends with her each week is rigorous, yet it passes quickly and he always leaves with a smile. His level of playing far surpasses our expectations. Each week, she emails us a custom practice log with notes about which pieces he should study. She is thoughtful about making sure that he has a grounding in the mechanics, while enabling his talent and natural feel for music. Each piece that he is assigned to play is purposeful and he really enjoys his repertoire. We are due to purchase a piano and Claudia is giving us tips in that process as well. We feel so lucky to have found Claudia!"

"Once in a while….

You meet someone with extreme talent. Maybe its natural, maybe its through thousands of hours of practice and dedication. With Josh, its both. This man knows what he is talking about, from the basics of how to properly place your hands on the piano, to the advanced music theory that makes everything work, he knows his stuff. My only regret is being a broke 20 something because the 8 weeks we worked together I went from novice, with almost no musical history, to someone who has the tools and confidence to continue my musical education on my own.

Id like to thank Josh for his time and patience, it really helped out, so much so that my family took notice of my interest and bought me two books full of sheet music for Christmas!

"I was looking for a vibrant, fun piano teacher for my kids as they were not motivated by strict teachers who also taught them boring songs they could not relate to. What a gift of a teacher we found in Catherine. Not only is she warm, kind, caring with an easy rapport for kids and adults alike but she is also an excellent piano and voice instructor. This talented lady is a professional singer too who is well versed in Broadway show tunes and opera too. She also instill her students with a sense of musical rhythm and is holistic in her approach to kids who might need a little physical warm up before class in order to attend better. Catherine’s voice is magnificent and we were fortunate enough to attend a show where she played the lead for The Taming of the Shrew.
She is a professional voice and classical opera teacher too and this complements her piano instruction .. A perk is she can travel to your home or does lesions in her own home . In addition
is a passionate, excellent voice teacher for anyone who is looking to hone their vocal skills and talents. I wholeheartedly recommend Catherine - her lessons are more than just teaching - she is a true mentor and educator in every sense of the word."
