Private Piano Teacher

Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and I would like to teach my students what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

Here are the core things that I focus on in Piano lessons.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Building hand coordination is essential to playing piano. A variety of agility and strengthening exercises will help you gain greater control and comfort in playing.

Articulation and phrasing is how pianists convey emotion. By Understanding the different colors available, a performer can create a dynamic and moving experience.

Selecting songs for your skill level and interest is important. Playing music you love will make your experience more enjoyable

Private Piano Teacher

I have been teaching piano in the Seattle area for close to ten years. I have worked with young beginners to intermediate and some advanced students. My methods are eclectic and I often draw from the Kodaly Method for beginners. I encourage my students to sing along while they play to reinforce learning, accessing multiple neural pathways.

I teach my students to read music and play with feeling and heart. I instill a love of music in my students by creating musical moments in them and expose them to a wide variety of genres and styles. Students will learn basic technique, theory, improvisation, and performance etiquette, all while having fun!

My joy is creating exciting, engaging lessons for my students to help them reach their musical goals and make music for enjoyment, and enhancement in their lives. I have worked with keyboard technology since it arrived on the teaching scene, and love to incorporate useful techniques to help students reach their goals. Lessons are custom created based on student’s needs, desires, and goals. The integrated use of technology makes lessons meaningful and engaging!

I have worked in the music products industry as a product specialist and national trainer to teachers, music dealers and consumers for over 35 years years and would love to help you get the most out of your digital instrument, whether it’s a digital piano, portable keyboard or organ. If there’s an owner’s manual available, we will get the best out of your instrument together!

Lori Frazer is an amazing human being, an enthusiastic and knowledgeable teacher and couldn't be more sincere. I can recommend her without reservation!
Jane
Lori is a great teacher. I am a digital dummy, but she has helped me pull together the information I need so I can fully utilize my Yamaha Clavinova. I am a piano teacher, too, and Lori and I have had long discussions about how to improve the learning process for students, especially mentally challenged students. She knows how to make the complex seem simple, and her knowledge of music programs and methods is phenomenal. She is also a VERY nice person.

"She showed up on time and got right to setting up, and seemed to be patient and have a good rapport with my son. I found out he knew even more than I thought about playing, like terms and play styles. He enjoyed the lesson, and is now practicing and trying to write his own music. He's really looking forward to next week which is very encouraging. So far I'm very happy I decided to sign him up for lessons."
