Making and learning music should be an enjoyable and empowering process. I strive to embody this ideal through my holistic teaching style which incorporates music theory, ear training, music history, and improvisation in addition to the commonly taught skill of note reading. It is my goal to help create capable, well-rounded, confident, and happy artists who will develop a love of music that will last them their entire life.
Seeing students enjoy their progress or take joy in a song is indescribably rewarding.
We have been thoroughly impressed with Krystal Hanson. I know that her passion is authentic and her love for what she does is genuine. We profit greatly from her knowledge and her excitement for what she does is contagious! I am constantly impressed with her ideas to engage the kids with music. We treasure piano lessons in our home with her!
Krystal is a breath of fresh air. Always upbeat!!!
Krystal is absolutely the best piano teacher my daughter has ever had. We love her so much. She has taught Makinley so much and she is always the sweetest girl you will ever meet. Thank you Krystal. We really appreciate you.
Krystal caters well to each student individually. She makes sure to find music to teach that I am excited about learning. More than just learning a piece, she also teaches music theory and history. Because she is a very positive person, I always feel uplifted after a lesson!
I offer a free consultation so the student and I can establish rapport, and so I can learn about the student's abilities, learning style, and goals. Each learning plan is individualized per student, but a typical course of learning entails theory driven warm-ups, a lesson book, a theory book, personalized learning activities, and a solo of the student's choice for them to enjoy.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in music, with an emphasis in piano performance. I graduated summa cum laude from SUU in 2017.
