I am an official qualified Yamaha piano instructor and currently working with kids in Yamaha School of music that provides its own method of teaching and learning system.
I work with students at all ages in the French Conservatory of Music located in the center of Beverly Hills as a Piano instructor.
The Yamaha Advanced Certificate is the official certificate in order to be able to teach in Yamaha Music School all around the world.
April is a knowledgable, skilled and kind piano teacher. She is very knowledgable about and helps me with the little details in the songs I play like articulation in Bach and rubato in Chopin. Overall, since I've been taking lessons with her, my technique, interpretation and music theory have all improved greatly. :)))+ Read More
Very good piano teacher. I had the pleasure of taking piano lessons with April and she has a natural ability to teach. April helped me to make a lot of progress in a very short time! And she is very involved in having the classes always very enjoyable for the student, by adding some cultural/historical references and funny facts about classical composers and music in general.+ Read More
I've been taking lessons with Ms. April Chung for a couple months. I had not played the piano since high school, and was hoping to pick up the old habit. Lessons with Ms. Chung has been pleasant, efficient, and very informative. I am very impressed (or shall we say surprised?) in how fast my techniques improved over the short period of time. I was able to put together a solid Chopin piece in good shape over a few weeks. I especially admire April's tips for self-practicing, and her balanced focus on both basic skills and musical expressiveness. I highly recommend anyone, with different experience and age, to work with Ms. Chung and learn to enjoy playing the piano.+ Read More
