As a late bloomer to piano I learned how to teach myself the essentials very quickly. I was then able to build on that technique. I can help you learn how to play the songs you want to play or help you with technique. I play professionally and can also provide a unique perspective into the jazz scene. My students say I’m very inspiring!

It was so fortunate for my son to find Dr. Yoon Lee as a very professional piano teacher. He was almost 12 years old when we found her name online during COVID pandemic. He started playing piano at age 3 and we were looking for next level, the upscale piano teacher. At first my son was a little nervous because of her tremendous career background. but her kind, cheerful and thoughtful approach had captured his heart almost instantaneously. My son loved her professionalism without any forcible advise and he really enjoyed her teaching style. When my son proclaimed he wished to become a pianist in the future, surprisingly she created his next 6 year curriculum. Now he had been practicing piano for more than 4 hours, joyfully and tirelessly everyday. We highly recommend Dr. Yoon Lee for the best piano teacher from beginner to advanced level. Once the students are drawn into Dr. Yoon Lee's pleasant enthusiasm, It is guaranteed that they will be in the right path to their success.
Erin
Dr. L. is an amazing teacher. After just a short time I have seen my daughter’s piano technique improve dramatically. Dr. L. is kind, thorough, patient and successfully manages to engage my four year old to make it a fun lesson every time. We would without a doubt recommend Dr. L. to everyone.
Katherine
My 11-year-old son has been studying piano with Dr. Lee for last 3 years. My son started from absolutely no background in music and cannot believe how fast he has improved. Now he is playing Mozart and Beethoven already. She has been so dedicated and supportive. We cannot recommend Dr. Lee highly enough

"As a teacher, I am whole heartedly committed to nurturing the development of students as they continue with the journey of playing music, and evolve into beautiful musicians. Achieving this requires a present awareness of my students and the music they are drawn to, while also presenting them with music and knowledge from various genres, styles, and times, to broaden their perception of the world we come from and thrive in.  My intention is to provide each individual with the necessary tools to play music passionately, beautifully, brilliantly, and with understanding, and to help students experience the joy of learning and playing music while becoming a well-rounded and well-versed musician. I aim to build a personal relationship with each of my students, and to provide a comfortable, challenging, fun, and vibrant learning experience as well so that all of my students can excel to their fullest potential."  - Sophia ♫

Sophia is a fantastic teacher, and talented musician. She’s both professional and personable, and does a great job of making learning about music fun with lessons that seem perfectly tailored to the individual student. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
Cesar H.
Ms. Sophia is a teacher who is fully engaged during musical instruction and performance. She is a kind and compassionate woman. Any student of hers is expected to give their highest effort in their lessons as well to commit to their out of lesson responsibilities. She is always there to provide students with resources to expand their knowledge. I would highly recommend her private instruction and have been inspired by their past and present achievements for the last 5 years.

"Angela is the most inspiring teacher I've ever had. Aside from having played the violin for a year prior, I was a complete adult beginner on piano. My passion is Baroque-era keyboard works, and Angela immediately got me started on Bach Prelude No. 2 from 12 Little Preludes. Within 12 lessons, I was able to play the entire piece with ease. Before starting with Angela, If you would have told me that in under 12 weeks I'd be playing Bach, I'd have called you crazy. Angela's strong suit is that she is confident that you can play any piece you put your mind to, regardless of experience, while inspiring and motivating you to do so.

Aside from technique, each lesson was equivalent to a college course in music theory. She understands that technique is only half of playing an instrument and the importance of knowing the reason each note falls where it does. This may sound overwhelming, but Angela never gives you more than you can handle, while challenging you to improve at a rapid pace. It was an extremely gratifying experience and I am thrilled at the progress that I made in under a year."
