Holistic Piano Training with Dr. Ko
I have a Doctorate in Piano Performance and hold a Fellowship in Piano Performance (Special Candidate Award) - the highest music diploma level awarded by Trinity London of College. Currently an after-school piano instructor at the French American International School in San Francisco, I’ve been continuously developing and implementing an innovative, thoroughly integrated basic music history, theory, and aural skills curriculum for approximately 40 students at the age range from 4 to 65. Throughout my 15 years of teaching experience, I have always challenged myself to incorporate creative methods into studio and classroom teaching. I like to make new concepts fun and easy to absorb. While I constantly assign tasks and pose questions that challenge my students to think critically, I am good at presenting my ideas in a relatable yet profound way. Besides setting goals periodically to motivate my students, each week I am able to find new angles and aspects in an old piece to work on. Because I care about what each student can offer differently in their playing, I always provide feedback that brings out their best. I am also open to discussion with students in which they bring in unique, dynamic, and unconventional ideas. As a result, I discover something new from my students daily. “Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” has always been my motto. Ultimately, I seek to encourage students to continue learning in a life-long passion for music.

Both my boys have progressed incredibly since starting lessons with Dr. Ko. They both love working with him and enjoy the experience each week immensely.

This is a wonderful place! Our 6 year old has been taking lessons from Dr. Ko for over a year and we couldn't be happier to see her learn and enjoy piano. Dr. Ko is very talented, patient and so great with kids in his teaching methods. Our daughter looks forward to go to the piano class every week. Dr. Ko has been very quick to answer any questions, emails and accommodate our schedule. Dr. Ko Piano Studio is a very professional place to take music lesson. Highly recommended!

My son attended lessons at Dr. Ko Piano Studio since August 2022 to help him brush up on his scales and other technical skills. Dr. Ko was absolutely fantastic and a great help. My son enjoyed his time with Dr. Ko. I was able to see a marked improvement between before and after his lessons and he’s certainly much more prepared than he would’ve been practicing on his own. I’d recommend this piano master to anyone in San Francisco who are in need of a good piano teacher.
