Hello, my name is DoYeon. I am an experienced piano teacher with 8 years of experience, teaching beginners to intermediate students. Not only do I teach my students to read music, I am passionate about how we express our emotions and thoughts in the music we play. Learning to express your emotions in your music can be daunting, but don't worry; I'll be by your side every step of the way.

Teaching since:

I am an enthusiastic teacher with 8 years of experience. I am very caring and thoughtful, especially for beginner/intermediate piano students! I am happy to work with students of all ages. I enjoy working with a student to not only read the music but but to dive deeper into the experience of playing and expressing emotions through sound. Even if you are brand new to the piano, have no fear, I am happy to help! It is going to be great.

Classical Piano · In studio

DoYeon is an extremely personable teacher who communicates in a way that makes learning piano both understandable, obtainable, and fun! She's very patient and inventive when it comes to trying new things to help students succeed. She challenged me while also helping me overcome any troubles I had along the way. I highly recommend her as a piano instructor!
