Hi! My name is Chien-Kai W. and I am a very energetic, friendly, and outgoing person. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music and Minor in Kinesiology. I have played horn for over ten years and have learned how to play and teach the fundamentals of numerous woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. Along with my education, I devote myself to exercise and participate in athletic and extra-curricular activities: running half marathons, learning new sports, dancing ballroom competitions, and teaching and assisting social dance lessons.
Although I am classically trained, I strive to in making sure that my students succeed in their fundamentals and are having a fun, good experience. My goals as a teacher is to make sure that you achieve your goals as a artist, performer, and learner. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and have you experience the best of your interests and craft.
