Private Classical Piano Teacher

I am an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with a strong interest in piano pedagogy of all levels. In pursuing these two degrees, I believe in a well-rounded musical education that includes story-telling, connecting music to relevant history and literature, and developing an emotive connection to music beyond just the technical in ways that are fun and engaging, especially in the beginning stages of learning.

That being said, I also emphasize the importance of having a solid foundation that allows for the capability to progress further. With teaching technique to beginners, I focus on fun exercises and activities that are easy for both the students and parents to understand and practice at home. Additionally, I believe that music theory is an essential building block to understanding how to read music effectively, so I begin every lesson with a short music theory lesson on basic harmony exercises that teach ...

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

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Summer is an amazing piano teacher. Her positive, encouraging and professional demeanor is like no other. She teaches 3 of my children piano:ages 14, 10, & 8 & she caters to each of their individual personalities, abilities and learning styles. I am amazed at how far each of them have come in just a year. It is so nice to see each of them sit down at the piano and just relax and have fun playing a tune. She has instilled a confidence in them that carries over into every aspect of their life. We are so grateful that the kids have fallen in love with piano, but I completely attribute that love to Summer’s style of teaching. Having a teacher that is so positive and encouraging is such a blessing.
thierry
My daughter is so happy with her lessons from Summer. She does a great job individualizing the curriculum, and even making the more monotonous parts engaging. Highly recommend.
Carolyn
I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. At the age of 50 I decided it was a perfect time! I picked Summer and it was the best choice I ever made!! She is such a great , patient teacher. She explains every thing so thoroughly that I had no problems understanding her! I caught on and achieved my goal of playing my favorite song, "Claire De lune" and more, I may not sound like a concert pianist, but I am proud of my accomplishment. It never would have happened with out such a fabulous teacher!

"I have been seeing Karen for a couple of years and have to say that of all the instructors I have had, she is the best and most professional. She always has a smile and has always been very flexible with me. She had not minded changing times when issues come up. The recitals are great and she gives students extra assistance with group lessons. When there are events in the community that can help with music skills, she always lets me know. I would highly recommend Karen as your family instructor. The price is reasonable as well."

"As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back."

"Ruth is a fantastic piano teacher. She is very patient and tailors her instruction to the age and capabilities of each child. Our 6yo daughter has been taking lessons with Ruth for a year and loves it, and we've really been amazed at how quickly she has advanced. Ruth is a perfect blend of kindness, patience, and a rigorous and strong training program. We are always impressed with the quality of the performances of Ruth's students (whose ages range from about 5-16) at the annual concert that she organizes. Ruth also teaches adults! If you are in the Princeton/Plainsboro area and looking for piano lessons, we highly recommend Ruth!"
