I have been playing piano since I was a young child and have always had a passion for music. I apprenticed in China under a master piano teacher for 15 years and then immediately started performing in many different venues. 18 years ago, I started teaching piano and have enjoyed sharing my love of music with others. I am very patient with students and am very open to the type of music they would like to play. From pop music to classical, beginning to advanced, I am well versed. If there is a specific piece you want to play, I can fit it to your level. In my lessons, I try to make each experience meaningful and joyful. I am also available giving personalized lessons online nationwide. Looking forward to meeting you and sharing the joy of music in person and online. *** Lesson Details *** In our lessons, beginning students will learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills. I especially emphasize in basic skills, such as recognizing the notes, reading the notes, understanding the meanings of the dynamics, and expressing oneself through each individual piece. Moreover, the basic performance skills are also occupied very heavily in each lesson, such as scales, triads in single notes and octaves, in slower speed and gradually into faster speed, and of course, different levels of etudes to build a strong base for each student to achieve his/her beautiful performance. *** Studio Equipment *** living room w/ piano seating for parents *** Travel Equipment *** The students should have their own piano or key board. *** Specialties *** I patiently teach my students with life examples .

I am an adult beginner (33) and had around 15 piano classes with Lena. I couldn't be more satisfied. Lena is patient, methodical and encouraging. I improved tremendously and I strongly recommend her.
I'm an adult beginner (34M). I've only had 4 or 5 lessons so far, but I'm really glad I chose Lena. You learn the right stuff! I have a history with drumming so I already learned the importance of regular practice of rudiments, and Lena will make sure you are practicing the right stuff to improve your literacy with music and mobility on the piano. She is also very patient and indulges my questions and curiosities when they arise. As someone who has only been playing for a short while, I can't really speak much about more complicated progress, but I feel like I am moving along at a good pace so far. My lessons are only 30 minutes and I'm still just starting, so I'll probably update the review as I get further along or change lesson structures.
My 6 yo son started piano lesson with Ms. Lena last month. She is very patient and attentive during lesson. The daily homework assigned by Ms. Lena is helpful to my son’s practice at home. I usually sit in the zoom lesson with my son to assist whenever is needed. Overall the zoom piano lesson works well. I would recommend Ms. Lena!
