Overview:

I am a pianist, teacher, mother and wife. I have BM from Elizabeth University of Music in Japan and M.M. from the New England Conservatory Of Music in Boston, MA. I was a former organist in Boston College, a pianist in Simmons College. I perform more than 20 recitals in year around Ct. I accompany to instrumentalists, vocalists, solo and I get commissioned to play premier pieces by composers. I am also a substitute keyboardist in the Hartford Symphony Orchestra and I play often such music like " Harry Potter" and "Indiana Jones". I have been teaching over 30 years privately and as a Chamber music coach. I am also a piano faculty at the University Of Hartford, the Hartt School Of Music.

EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching over 30 years privately and also at different institutions. Currently I am a piano faculty at the Hartt school of music in the University of Hartford. I have been teaching from young students to seasoned adults and chamber music coaching. I am a classically trained pianists but also I took a jazz improv seminar and have taken private jazz piano lessons for years. I do not force anyone to play or think only one way to play piano since everyone comes in different sizes. I always try to work with the student's need in what he or she needs to make the most fun and productive time. Because what I believe is the progress comes with having a good time and not only from working hard.

METHODS USED

Currently I am not teaching beginners. I start with whatever the books they have and experience and preference of music they have. I also bring copied music to introduce them to different styles of music to see what they would be interested in and what they need to work on technically and musically. I also ask them, "what is your goal to take piano lessons?" to set a personal goal for each student to make mile stones to achieve their goals. I provide all my students to have performance opportunities 2 times in year.

LESSON STYLE

I believe that everyone has their own speed to accomplish their goals. I know how hard to keep practicing and performing from my own experience. However I want them to experience the satisfaction of accomplishment which only the players can experience. That's why I am very patient and supportive of every step a student takes and needs no matter how long or how hard it takes. I believe that everyone can enjoy learning piano and share the power of music which is the soul food for every human being.

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.
