I hated piano when my parents first started me, I was secretly hoping that one day something terrible would happen to my piano so that the teach never had to come teach me and made me practice like a hamster on the spinning wheel ever again… After years of struggling and lots of tears, I quit.

Little did I know that I would rediscovered that giant instrument in my teen years, falling hopelessly in love with classical music that later I became a professional pianist… I traveled around playing concerts for years, I’ve always enjoyed sharing my passion of music with people, but I couldn’t stop wondering, why did I hated piano so much when I was young? What if my first piano teach didn’t push me too hard? What if there’s a better way to learn piano…etc. Those questions led me to this ultimate idea: maybe I can be a better teacher for what I’ve gone through.

I started full time teaching in 2018 as a piano instructor at Westminster Conservatory. Piano was secondary instrument for most of my students, that allowed me to experience different playing levels, and tailored my piano lesson to suit my students individually, and later I started my own studio accepting students at all ages.

Music is the only universal language that touches your heart without words, learning piano truly is a supreme gift of a lifetime, and it will be my honor, to share this joy of learning with you.

About Yihan Z.

I used to be a full time concert pianist before I started teaching, I was lucky enough to be able to give concerts and recitals at some of the most beautiful halls in the world, including Carnegie Hall in New York City, Walt Disney concert hall in LA, Lewis art center in Princeton NJ, Beijing Concert hall, Forbidden City concert hall, Central Conservatory of Music grand concert hall in Beijing, China. I graduated from University of Cincinnati College conservatory of Music with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance, specifically in Classical music. And I’ve studied with professors from Juilliard, Princeton,and Eastman school of music, after I graduated college.

I started teaching regularly in 2012 when I was in college, I became full time piano instructor at Westminster Conservatory in 2018, I’m well experienced with all ages and all levels students. I have a great passion in teaching, and a sense of purpose to share the pureness of joy that comes from music with everyone of you.

Piano lessons with me would be a fun experience of something that tailored just for you to suit your own playing, not just to see results of improvements and also dive deeper into the structure of the music and the story behind the composer, help you to become a better musician.

I put my kid in front of a piano since age 4, then she quit at 7. “Stunning” was the word in my head first time hearing Yihan playing piano. My daughter heard Yihan’s recording, then told me second day that she wanted to start learning piano again..! Yihan has being her piano teacher ever since. This time, not only my kid committed to it, but also grown so fast, All because of Yihan! I’m very grateful!

I got back at playing piano after 15 years long absence, I’m very lucky to have Yihan as my piano teacher, my piano lessons with her were fun and unforgettable. She is a knowledgeable pianist, she explains the complicates in simple terms. Her approach to teaching is so different than the other piano teachers I had before, I highly recommend her.
