About Simeon K.

Degrees held:
Indiana University Jacobs School of Music - MM, PD
Oberlin College and Conservatory - BM

I teach private piano lessons, music theory classes, and accompanying. Students of all ages/levels are welcome. My teaching method primarily focuses on the process of learning music. Students are encouraged to make manageable goals for each lesson so that they can feel a sense of achievement throughout the entire learning process. The smaller goals keep the students motivated constantly enabling them to become a better musician. By focusing on the process of learning, students are learning a set of skills that will enable them to learn pieces quicker and allow for a more rewarding end product. They also are able to apply these learning skills to many different areas of study, which enhances their personal growth.

My daughter adores Simeon! He listens and understands her strengths and more importantly, her weakness. So far it's been a great journey.
