Piano lessons for kids and adults of all levels. Practicing piano as a hobby or serious training are all welcomed. The goal is to nurture piano playing and music enrichment that can bring enjoyment to students and the skills they learned can carry on for their whole lifetime. Helping students to build up solid music foundation and improve in a steady way on their own path without pressure.

A professional pianist and teacher obtained Master of Arts in Music and studied piano performance under the world-renowned master pianist Mack McCray at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Each student is unique, has his or her own talent and the specific points need to enhance. Adapting different teaching strategies and music materials according to individual student’s needs and interests. I have good insight into student's special qualities, talent, emotions, and problems, and am patient in helping student to improve, enjoy playing and grow in a joyful way.

Preparing students to participate in recital, Certificate of Merit or ABRSM evaluation programs, and competition are available.

    My son has taken piano lessons with Ms. Pailin for 4 years and my daughter has taken it for 2 years. Ms. Pailin is patient and great with kids which has made the learning process fun and enjoyable and has really fostered a love of music in my kids.
    Her teaching method is precise and instructive, which helps build a solid foundation for children to develop their interests and skills in playing piano.
    Ms. Pailin teaches kids many piano skills that lead to success, helping them improve with advice and practice during each lesson.

    My daughter, Rebecca, has been taking private piano lessons at Melody Ocean Studio for the past five years, and my experience has been nothing short of exceptional. My teacher is knowledgeable, patient, and truly passionate about music. She has a wealth of experience and expertise in teaching students of all ages and skill levels.
    The lessons are well-structured and tailored to students individual needs and goals. Ms. Yang incorporates a variety of teaching methods and resources to ensure that shes challenged and engaged in her learning. She is also very supportive and encouraging, which has helped the teen to build confidence and improve the playing skills over time.
    In addition to the high-quality instruction, the studio itself is well-equipped and comfortable. The environment is conducive to learning and allows students to focus and practice without distractions. The scheduling and communication with the studio staff have also been seamless, making the whole experience stress-free and enjoyable.
    Overall, I highly recommend Melody Ocean Studio for anyone looking to learn piano in a private setting. The quality of instruction, support, and resources available make it an excellent choice for students of all ages and skill levels.
