I have been teaching piano for more than 20 years and my student's won numerous awards and got into Music schools! My daughter is a higher schooler and can teach viola and piano as well. Her students got into honor orchestra and was the first chair in the viola section.
I have students graduated from my studio got into Columbia, UC Berkeley, UCI........Some of my students started playing piano/keyboard at church in the English ministry. I am so proud of them for keep playing piano for the rest of their life and I truly happy that I taught them well.
Mrs. Lee taught me piano over 10 years and I passed CM advanced level and won numerous awards from MTAC and other competitions.
I interviewed students level and give them different music books to start the lesson. I will decide the length of the lesson depending on their age and level.
I graduated from Manhattan School of Music in New York. I received my master degree of piano performance and started teaching since I am still a student. I learned to use different method to teach different children. Even though I learned from classical music, I also teach Disney songs, children's songs, jazz, worship songs from Christian music, to classical music. Music can be learned in any way and want my students to love the piece they are learning until they moved on to intermediate level.
I charged $35.00 for an half hour lesson depending on their level. I only charge 4 lessons every month no matter if there is 3 or 5 weeks. I will let students take summer vacation and only count the weeks they came to the lesson. If they are sick, they can have make up lesson when they feel better.
I started teaching from music schools from New York, to California. Since I have kids, I started teaching at home because I have to stay at home most of the time.
I have students from age of 5 to grandma. As long as they love music, I am willing to teach them.
I had a concert in Taiwan this summer. My dad is an artist and I used " Pictures at the Exhibition" by Mussorgsky to perform including his paintings over 100 of them to display. I also invited some performers to play 4 hand one piano pieces by Debussy and Faure. We had a full house of audience and they all enjoyed the way how I present with music and art altogether.
Please ask the teacher what kind of music are you interested and try to know how many years of teaching experience they had.
What kind of keyboard or piano do I need to start the piano lesson? How long I need to practice everyday? Do I need to bring any music or notebook?
