I place a heavy emphasis on not just playing but understanding the music. Understanding what you're playing is a key difference between an amateur and a professional musician.

Music is all about relationships and patterns. The more patterns and relationships you learn to readily recognize and identify the more affluent you become in your musical mastery.

On piano, students can learn how to create an accompaniment from a lead sheet (chord chart) while playing the melody or learn sight reading to improve learning efficiency for more exact music (classical). Technique and fingering is always an important part of learning the piano.

About Jacob K.

Hi, my name is Jacob. I have been teaching music lessons for a living for over 10 years. I graduated with my Ba. in music composition from the University of Oregon in 2008. I play and teach all styles of music including classical, jazz, rock, folk, and other pop styles. I place a big emphasis on technique and theory. I like for my students to understand what they are doing rather than just going through the motions.

I'm currently teaching music at Hanalani Schools in Mililani, and I live in Kailua. I have a pretty full schedule already but I'm always up to teaching new students, provided I'm able to fit you into my schedule.

My students ages range from 4 - adult and I have plenty of experience with all age groups. I teach guitar, piano, and ukulele.

Jacob was great! He is prompt, friendly, and does a good job helping my 13-year old daughter on piano. She is consistently improving after only a few lessons.
