About Yifei X.

I am a professional pianist. I had earned my Bachelor of Music, Master of Music, and am completing my Doctoral of Musical Arts degree at Manhattan School of Music in New York.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I have been studying piano for more than 23 years. I have taught private students for 8 years from age 4-adult or professionals and I am currently teaching piano lessons/classes at Manhattan School of Music. I teach students from reading music and pursuing classical excellence on music theory or history, or teach students how to enjoy in music from composing simple melodies or understanding about chords with some pop elements, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

As a professional pianist, I often collaborate with composers and famous musicians. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, dynamic musician, composers or songwriters.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
