Overview:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I'm currently an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and I'm still playing piano in school and teaching piano part-time. I'll be teaching both online and at my home studio in Kirkland. I've performed in several recitals when I was living in the Bay Area. I recently moved from the Bay Area to Kirkland. My goal as a teacher is to keep the lessons engaging and fun and I hope my students will enjoy their lessons with me.

EXPERIENCE

I started playing piano since I was about 4 years old and I've been teaching since the summer of 2017. I passed the ABRSM Grade 5 Music Theory exam in 2012 and the ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Performance exam in 2016. I also won several music scholarships during high school. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages and I'm looking forward to meet you!

METHODS USED

For beginning students who are children, I typically start with Hal Leonard's Essential Elements. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce a solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in depending on the ability level. I would also start with books for adult beginners if needed. My goal as a teacher is to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

LESSON STYLE

I am easygoing to every student I meet. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a student's desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn and practice more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.

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.
