Hello! I began studying piano when I was 4 through the Suzuki method and started teaching when I moved to San Francisco to start school. I am dedicated to the Suzuki method and believe in it; in case you're unfamiliar with the Suzuki method, it's a way of approaching music that focuses on fundamentals, developing the ear, and learning through emulation rather than solely on reading and theory. As someone who was taught by a more traditional teacher who was a strict adherent to the Suzuki method timeline, I have found myself to be much more flexible teacher who really wants to structure the lessons around the student to maximize an enjoyable relationship with the piano and music. For adults, of course, we start looking at reading pretty much from the beginning whereas for children, we steer clear of reading for a bit. I have a dog and two cats who are super friendly and who love to sit and listen to the piano lessons (I have had a few students who are scared) - just FYI! Looking forward to meeting you!

Great first session. Location was easy to find. Kids felt comfortable, and they enjoyed their lesson (despite being resistant in the beginning). Charlotte was very friendly and warm with them, which helped a lot!

My 12 year old daughter and I have been taking lessons with Charlotte for about 2 months now and we couldn't be happier. She is positive and patient with both of us and is able to adapt her approach to each of us. My daughter was ready to quit piano and begging me to not to sign her up for lessons and Charlotte has been able to keep her engaged while pushing her to keep progressing.

Charlotte is awesome! She's patient, thorough, and offers great constructive feedback. In my three lessons with her I've learned far more than I have with my previous instructor.

I highly recommend her!

She is cool. She gave me kind of a lot, but that I cannot take it. And she is good at correcting you when you are making a mistakes. Also she is trying to explain very easy way. If you didn’t get it she’ll explain in another way. I’m 23. And it was my first class with her. :)

My trip to San Francisco was highlighted by my time at the piano with Charlotte. I chose early morning lessons to get the day started! Charlotte is a great teacher, our lessons were so productive, and they never seemed to last long enough, especially the last one, the hour went to quickly! She has her own unique way to keep you moving through the material and keep you motivated and rewarded with subtle progression. Lessons with Charlotte would be my main reason for returning to SFO on the next trip from HKG!!! Thanks Charlotte!!!
