About this pro

I've been teaching drums/percussion and beginning - intermediate Piano for over 10 years for kids and adults. I am a professional percussionist and musician, and improviser and am very organized when I plan lessons. I am also flexible to open up the lessons to meet students' special needs as well. I always try my best to provide fun and worthful lessons. I am patient very good at communicating with students to make sure to meet their needs and make them happy. I am also a native speaker of Japanese, so if you are Japanese and want fully-Japanese lessons, I can provide them.

What makes me the most excited and enjoy teaching work is when students find joy in accomplishing their work. I love helping them reach their goal, or even helping them find the goal.

    Nava is outstanding. She has been teaching my child for ten years and I am ever impressed. Her teaching style has been effective at every age, as she maintains a perfect balance between amiable and exacting. Her lessons are custom-tailored to maintain interest and develop proficiency. Nava's own musical talent is inspiring and encourages her students to persevere technically and expand creatively. She is always reliable. She is a true pro and I still consider myself lucky to have found her.

    Nava was a true gem for our daughter when she started taking piano lessons at age 6. Nava always showed great patience in working with our daughter, especially after we went to online classes during the pandemic. But most importantly, she made piano fun and nurtured our daughter’s natural instincts and joy for music and learning. To help with online learning, Nava often sent video recordings of new songs, which our daughter loved and exemplified for us the care and attentiveness she shows her students.


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

I usually start with a trial lesson to see if we are a good fit. I ask my students what are their needs prior to the lesson and I try my best to provide materials that fit them perfectly.
