After graduating from the elite High School of Music in Oita, Japan - I came to America to study
at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. After completing their famous pedagogy program
in 1992, I graduated and settled in San Diego to focus on teaching and piano accompaning.
I began teaching piano full-time in 1997 and always get a thrill out of helping students of all
ages to achieve their musical dreams and bring out their best qualities.
*** Lesson Details ***
In my experience my personal feedback confirms that I am consistently patient, enthusiastic
and positive in my approach with students. My curriculum is based on the popular Bastien,
Hal Leonard and Faber method books. I have vast experience with beginning students,
and have also worked with intermediate and advanced students, including competition
preparation and placement. For the more advanced students I use the Keith Snell method.
