I am an undergraduate student at University of Michigan studying Piano Performance. As an active performer and collaborative pianist, I have recently given recitals and performances in North Carolina, New York, Germany, and Perugia (Italy). My previous accomplishments include winning major prizes from the Brevard Music Center Piano Competition, first prize at the Ronald Sachs Competition, the 2019 Huntoon Piano Award, and multiple awards from MTNA. In addition, I have been awarded multiple Career Development Grants from UNC School of the Arts and was most recently awarded the Excel Enterprise Fund, for projects and performances throughout the US and in Düsseldorf, Germany. In 2018 I was named a fellow at the Aspen Music Festival and School. I completed my high school education at University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a concentration in Piano where I won the concerto competition, performing Tchaikovsky’s first concerto throughout North Carolina.

Piano teaches many skills such as patience, diligence, and perseverance. Learning piano means coordinating emotional expression with physical dexterity. I believe in a well rounded musical training which includes music theory, ear training, music literature, and music history.

Jacob is very friendly and patient with young kids. My 3rd grader started his first piano lesson with Jacob for 8 weeks this summer in NC. He looks so froward to his lesson each week and has developed a passion for learning how to play the piano and create the music. Jacob’s teaching method is thorough and instructive, which helps build a solid foundation for kids to develop their interests and skills in playing piano. I highly recommend Jacob to anyone!

Jacob's overall teaching style has a significant effect on my daughter's learning attitude, and the relationship between them is strong.
After 4 weeks piano lessons, the learning attitude of my daughter becomes postive, and the habit of piano practice is highly improved.
