I've been teaching piano at my house and at an academy in Pleasanton for more than 10 years. My teaching field is Classical music mainly. I'm a member of MTAC(Music Teachers' Association of California) and National Guild of Piano Teachers .
My teaching policy is that all students can play the piano in any music field without teachers in the future. I teach the piano technically and musically, and also analyzation based on theory.
I enjoy teaching all levels and seeing how they improve in a year. I also play the Violin/Viola as a second instrument, so sometimes I enjoy playing duet with a student accompanist. Not only playing solo but playing ensemble with other instrument or voice is a good opprtunity to learn more musical world. And, it helps students learn the technique and expression more.
Chiyoko is a great teacher. She is very patient and skillful and kids love to work with her. Her love for music shows through her teaching and how she interacts with kids. She is also very flexible with scheduling and payment.
I had the pleasure of taking music lessons from Ms. Chiyoko for many years. Ms. Chiyoko is an extremely knowledgable and skilled musician as well as a very patient teacher. I would recommend music lessons with her to anyone looking to grow in music.
