Want to learn expressive techniques? Keen to learn what it takes to effectively practice? I am just the right teacher to cater to all students' needs ranging from levels beginner to advanced! With 11 years of experience of volunteering as a local teacher for cello, competitive piano, performing viola, and a little dose of perfect pitch, I will help you establish all the fundamentals of musicality, sight reading, performing, music theory, and especially ear training. Having a capable, relatable teacher like me, I can assure you that you will be playing from 2 notes to sonatas in no time! Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!

I have been playing piano for 12 years and teaching for 5 years. I strongly believe in piano performance being as enjoyable for those who want to play as a hobby and also competitive, for those who want to challenge and go beyond in hopes to pursue a music career. I teach classical, pop, improvisation, and I have strong level and experience of audition preparation and state wide competitions. I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

About Soonbee K.

Hi everyone! My name is Soonbee Kwon, and I am a cellist, pianist, violinist, and violist. I am going to college at University of Mass. Boston, majoring with a Bachelors of Psychology and Music, specifically music in cello.

As a musician who has experienced times without a private teacher, I can help and ensure any student to be taught foundational techniques to unleash their unique expression and performance. I can help any student to sing with confidence, articulation, and passion!

I teach cello and piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I played and studied classical piano for 9 years, and contemporary keyboard for 4 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As being a full time student, I am analyzing upon my research project on the developing and limiting factors of the 4th Industrial Revolution technologies on music performance and production, ultimately creating a interactive activity that would serve the purpose to see how music technology can impact orchestra classrooms and in music stores like Yamaha. I love to assist students who want to become cohesive, dynamic music researchers!

Within music, my personal passions are all a variety -- from Korean Rhythm and Blues, to Hip Hop Rap, and to slow instrumental music, I firmly believe that just a small heart and essential basis of technique is key to any and every genre and style of music. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become the best musician!
