About this pro

I plan to teach people of all age who are beginning pianists or first time learners. I do plan on teaching the foundations (scales, chords, theory, reading sheet music, memorizing, technique) but beyond that, I want the student to grow to love playing the piano and not limit them to a rigorous classical kind of training that might feel dull. Piano practice and lessons should be enjoyable for the student. From Classical music to jazz to improvising to composing to playing scores from movies/videogames—whichever style it may be, I want to cultivate direction for the student regarding their musical abilities and goals and inspire them to grow a passion for playing piano.

Every student learns differently: I love the aspect of getting to understand how he or she learns, about their personality and what they like/dislike, and what their talents and areas they need to improve are. It challenges me teach in a specific way for each individual and gives me a great opportunity to cultivate in them a love for piano in their own unique way. Seeing one bear fruit from my teaching is very rewarding.

    Kevin taught me piano last summer, and it was great for me as beginner. I didn't know how to play piano and had just little knowledge. When he taught me, he exactly knew what I was struggling such as position or which finger to use. I asked him that my goal was playing one song that I really love. He taught me based on that song, so now I can play it from beginning to end! During summer, he was so nice and took care a lot. I appreciate it.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I plan to teach people who are beginning pianists or picking up piano for the first time. I plan to teach scales, chords, theory, fingering and technique, and reading and playing music from sheets. Every student learns differently; after getting a feel for how he or she learns, their physique, their personality, and their musical ability and their interests, I plan to create some structure and buy books to go through catered to that student. Some students may be a natural when it comes to proper fingering, others in reading sheet music, others in playing by ear, etc. we can work on both developing those gifts and also improving on weakpoints (and/or goals they want to achieve)


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

- 5 years of classical training from elementary school to high school

- Picked up again at 2017: 2 years and on going training


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
