What do you offer for a beginner?

Assuming a student has never played a piano and is 10 years old or older, lessons will focus on fundamentals of technique and sight reading classically oriented material. I follow piano curriculum developed by John Thompson and Alfred.

For students under 10 years of age without any prior piano training, a preparatory book may be used.

After a minimum 6-12 months of continuous piano lessons (assuming a weekly schedule), music theory will be introduced, along with chord playing.

What do you offer for a non-beginner?

Assuming a student has had a minimum of one year of continuous piano training, depending on the lesson customization, lessons will be based around the Alfred and/or John Thompson curriculum, and music theory and chord playing will be introduced.

Should a student already know chord playing, I will fast forward the lesson to sight reading lead sheet/fake books and learning pop, rock or jazz piano playing styles (left and ...

I have responsibility review of lessons with him.

First,when I contacted with him about lessons,he suggested me interview that there’s no charge but he would want to discuss with me what I would do expect piano lessons for my son for future.
After discussion,I sent my son another day,it was the first lesson.
Surprisingly,he had prepared its already pre-printed lesson flows!
I appreciated it that it means,we guardians don’t need worry about what we could expect lessons,but of course required practice for next time.
Patent could check what happened the lesson was,what would be for next.

Bastin,Alfred,as you know,those textbooks that kids could learn all the notes.
He uses some of them,it would be combined for your child.

If you looking for the best fundamentally for your child,to play piano,not only enjoyable one,I think he’s the best.

I know there are many Japanese families in Bryn Mawr,I would recommend he’s class!

We are moving family,I expect the piano lessons with him would be make my son’s knowledge to play piano more stronger,also beyond countries,even time passed by.

Jan is a wonderful teacher and we recommend him highly to students of any age. My son really likes Jan's teaching method and appreciates that he is so musically current and kind -- high praise from a teenager! Jan is easygoing but is also innovative and thorough in his approach, and it's been a pleasure for the rest of us to get to know him too. I haven't always been successful in the past at getting my son to focus on lessons but Jan has a way of encouraging that progress along. As a result, my son has learned a lot in a short time and really enjoys the piano now.

To whom It may concern,

This is a letter of recommendation for Jan Jurchak as a teacher of piano instruction for young children. He is a man of high technical skill and ability, yet he can still make the basic movements fun and entertaining for kids of all ages. My 8 and 10 year old children took to his kind manner and positive teaching techniques immediately, he was their instructor for two years. Their aptitude for the instrument grew as their desire to perform better for their
teacher amplified with each session. They gladly did their practices on their own, in hopes of excelling and impressing their new mentor every lesson. They were
encouraged to think about the instrument in their own way; to bring in pieces of music that they liked and wanted to learn. In short time, both children began to
read and write music. Long after Jan has left our lives, the girls love of piano has continued to expand and develop; truly the gift that keeps giving. I could not more highly recommend this man as a music instructor for children. You would be lucky to have him!
Sri Utami
To Whom It May Concern:
This letter is to attest to the character and proficiency of our former keyboard instructor Jan Jurchak who instructed our twin, 12 year old girls for 2 years from the ages of 9 through 11. Our girls were able to progress from having no proficiency on the piano up to a middle intermediate level through the instruction of Jan whom we received once weekly 30-45 minute lessons Jan has demonstrated integrity in his work and dedication to teaching our young children and as a result has earned our trust and respect as an outstanding example
We have observed Jan work with others in his initial as an instructor for Spotlight Arts Center in Saugus, California and later as our private instructor. Throughout our working relationship Jan freely assisted us in providing useful feedback to enhance learning between lessons and build confidence in their ability to play the instrument. Jan demonstrated a consistently high level of professionalism and expertise in his craft. As such my wife and I are highly recommending Jan for the position of Music/Keyboard instructor that he is pursuing.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions, clarifications or concerns regarding this statement of recommendation.
Sincerely,
Vincent Kondo and Sri Utami

For the beginner, I will break music therory down into easy to understand segments so that it will not be as overwhelming to someone who’s never learnt music theory before. For those who have learnt music theory before but need a refresher, I will make sure there are no gaps in their knowledge and go from there.

I’ve been working with mrs Kim, since the beginning of summer!! I always sang in the shower or just too sing I felt like I had a future with it if I continued and took lessons so I decided too ask my mom and she signed me up with mrs Kim! It’s only been a few months since I’ve been working with her in my voice and I’ve improved so much since IMY first lesson! She’s help gotten me too we’re I am right now. Mrs Kim is such an amazing teacher. She’s is very honest and open with things you need help or need to work on. She’s also a very good singer and has amazing taste in music ! But she’s really helped me find my voice, find out if I wanna continue doing music. She’s helped a lot with my voice and overall just finding my melodys a little better because rim a dancer so I pick up melodys pretty easily but sometimes I need help with finding the exact melody and really helps. Overall I’ve loved working mrs Kim and I want to continue working with mrs kim!!
Justin R.
Chau has been a great instructor/coach for me. She has forced me out of my comfort zone to make me a better singer overall, rather than just learning how to sing what I'm comfortable with. She focuses immensely on breaking bad habits and building/reinforcing good ones. She's extremely knowledgeable, with a great ear, and very keen to the mechanics of what creates a certain sound. With that, she is able to clearly articulate what you're doing to create the sound, in a relatable and understandable way. She's strict, but if you really want to excel, she'll be able to push you there.
Anthony Brandon
I've been taking lessons online and in person from Chau for almost a year now and I can honestly say, I wouldn't have had it any other way. She is an extraordinary teacher who is very good at communicating and understanding her students. I remember being terrified of singing out loud when I first arrived with her. Since then she has allowed me to open up and has made a huge difference in not only the way I sing but the way I live my life as well. She pushes me to be the best singer I can be and helps me believe in myself even when I am in doubt. She is truly an amazing teacher and lovely human being that I'd recommend to anyone regardless of singing goals or experience.

Everyone interacts with music on a daily basis, and my goal as a teacher is to help you develop all the basic tools you need to be able to read, create, and understand basic written music....and to do so in a fun, interesting way! Whether you hope to go on to study instrumentally or vocally, or you are just looking to gain a deeper understanding of written music, I would love to assist you on that journey and to introduce you to the incredible universal language of music!

We will learn the notes and rests needed for basic music notation and become familiar with their duration as well as their names on the staff. In addition we will dive into basic music symbols, dynamics, and tempo markings. If you wish to learn how to sight-read music, I will also introduce you to the basic Kodaly method and take you through various vocal exercises and sight-reading examples.

How proficient you would like to become in reading and writing music is completely up to you and how far you would like ...

Ever wanted to understand the inner workings of the music that you love, perform, or revere? Music Theory and Analysis opens windows to a higher level of understanding of music.

Our first lesson will assess where your currently level of musical understanding is and progress from there. Whether you are a music grad looking for a refresher or someone looking at the material for the very first time, through meticulous exploration we will go from scale degrees to counter point and upper structure harmonies.

As a performer, there is no other discipline in music I use more frequently than music theory.
