ABOUT
Degrees / Training / Special Info:

BM, Miyagi Gakuin University in Japan, Piano Performance Diploma, Pitman College in UK, Secretarial Skills Certificate, UCIrvine in USA, TESL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)

Overview:
I was awarded a Bachelors Degree in Music, Piano performance major, in Japan and have been teaching piano for 25 years not only in Japan but also in Africa (I was sent to Zambia by Japanese government and taught Music in the college for 2.5 years) and the US. I am very enthusiastic to transfer my skills and knowledge to my students. I am very patient, and I'm willing to discuss lesson progress with parents and make an effort to solve any problem that may come up.
EXPERIENCE
I started teaching piano as a private teacher in my piano studio right after I graduated from university. After 10 years, I applied to the volunteer organization in Japan- the American Peace Corps. I taught piano, music theory, keybord harmony, etc. to African college students who were going to be music teachers of high schools. I have also been teaching in the US for 8 years. I love to teach piano very much and enjoy seeing my students' improvement.
METHODS USED
For beginners who are children, I start with Bastien Piano Basics together with the theory books. Once the student has progressed to gain fundamentals, I will introduce Brugmuller, Back, Czerny, Hanon, Sonatina and Sonata by famous composers. For adult beginners, I use Alfred's Adult All-in One Course, and I try to find out what type of piano music fits my students' interests and preference.      
LESSON STYLE
My teaching style is very flexible. I am able to teach classical, as well as many different musical genres. I am able to arrange piano songs to the student's level and write down the scores from the songs. My ultimate purpose of teaching piano is to make my students ENJOY their performances. However, the key factor in improving piano skills is hard practice. Making sure their children keep practicing is always challenging for parents and teachers, but please remember that everyday practice is required if you would like to progress your piano performance.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
