I really enjoy taking piano lessons from Kiona. She is patient and very professional during the lessons. She is an excellent teacher who takes her time making sure you understand what is being taught. Kiona is preparing you for success by making sure you have a good foundation in theory, keynotes, and chords, all while making the class fun by learning songs you are interested in playing. Kiona is also flexible whenever you need to change the date of your lesson.
She is extremely flexible in scheduling and my son has made great progress over the past year!
Kiona is very nice, patient and professional.
I love how well she works with children. She has a lot of patience and uses a polite and friendly tone that my daughter works well with. My daughter has excelled tremendously within the 1st month in a half with Ms. Ervin being her teacher. I Highly recommend her.
I start with a free trial lesson to get to know the student and the parent at the same time. During the free trial lesson, I assess the child with multiple piano activities to see if the child has an interest in learning the piano, can focus their attention on me and follow directions and has the basic skills needed to learn beginner piano concepts.
For adult beginners, I also start with a free trial lesson to get to know them, introduce the geography of the keyboard, and introduce note reading on the treble clef staff.
Through piano instruction, I strive to enhance students' sight reading skills and piano technique.
