    My son had piano lessons with Ms Hai Chi since he was just 6 y.o. he is now 8. I've seen a tremendous improvement in my son's ability to play the piano. Ms Chi is very particular from the very beginning on proper hand and body posture, she was very patient and kept my son engaged and encouraged me as a parent on what needs to be done at home to foster my son's learning. In 2 years of lessons, my son had learned to sight read music, he learned to play back and tap to tempo, participated in several recitals and had an exceptional rating on his audition performance. Ms Chi is very knowledgeable and kind and works very well with kids.

    Great teacher! I have been taking lessons with Hai for almost a year. She is very knowledgeable and knows how to guide a beginner like me. She is very patient, and knows how to keep the student motivated without overwhelming him. She gives every lesson with the same enthusiasm and energy. She very is observant, and is always looking for areas in which the student can improve. I have improved a lot thanks to her, and most important of all, I have enjoyed every moment of this musical journey. I encourage anyone who is looking for a music teacher to take lessons with Hai, you will not regret it.

    Both my kids (12 yr old and 6 yr old) are taking classes with with Ms. Hai Chi for almost 9 months now. Ms. Hai is a very patient and effective teacher. She identified the strengths and weaknesses and started working on them right away. Initially we had a tough time trying to make my daughter like playing the piano, but Ms.Chi quickly developed a rapport with her and now she loves to play piano and practices on her own. Since we began classes with Ms.Chi, both my kids are showing more interest in learning piano and practice more. Ms. Hai Chi has a very personalized teaching approach and I would highly recommend her.

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

Before starting a lesson for piano lesson, I would love to have a short interview to know my future student's important learning background, his or her target, and share my teaching philosophy and policy. Importantly, I will offer a simple knowledge background test to evaluate student's level and write them down. Also, it can help me to find an effective teaching method and some proper method books to begin.

In the piano lesson, my student will learn piano playings, music theory, ear training, sight-reading, and sight-singing.

At the end of each semester, I will have a more advanced knowledge background test to record. Then, let students compare with their history test to know what they make progress on clearly and what they have to work even harder next semester.

My thoughts working with a new student become my students' listener, observer and a professional instructor with my personalized, fun, resourceful teaching method.
