- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+ and special needs
- Teaching since:
My name is JunZhao Deng, originally from Guangzhou, China. I am a classically trained pianist, with my bachelor's degree in music education from Xinghai Conservatory of Music and my master's degree in piano performance from Kent State University.
Over the past 10 years, I have taught private lessons to students of all ages and playing levels. Students who study with me can expect to gain a better understanding of music theory as well as technique. I strive to push my students to their maximum potential, and will encourage them to participate in concerts, competitions, etc.
In my career, I have performed in numerous competitions in China, such as the Hong Kong International Piano Competition and the DeYiShuangQing Piano Competition, winning awards such as the Guangzhou Golden Award.
I am personally trained in classical music, but I have a great respect for all genres of music, and encourage my students to listen and play more than classical.
I took lessons with JunZhao (Ryan) because I wanted to strengthen my technical piano skills and also learn more music theory. He was a great teacher, and taught me a lot about how to make playing the piano feel effortless. Not only was he knowledgeable on the technique, but also on the musicality perspective of playing, and the theoretical side of playing. I would definitely recommend Ryan as a piano teacher for players of any level, but especially beginning and intermediate level pianists.+ Read More
