New England Conservatory (BM)-piano performance
san Fran Francisco Conservatory (MM)-piano performance
I’m a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students. My performance and educational background is strong. In 2004, I graduated from New England Conservatory with a Bachelors of Music in Piano Performance. And also in 2006, I graduates from San Francisco Conservatory with a Masters of Music in Piano Performance. I had performed with a repertoire that stretches from Bach to Liszt to the music of today. I am very enthusiastic about meeting new students who can share my love of music.
My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 18 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students until now. As a private piano instructor for the last 18 years I have gained valuable insight into the ways in which music can be taught to enrich the lives of people. I am confident teaching at all skill levels, from beginners to advanced. I try to approach student’s needs individually. I also try to help them with their musicianship, so that they can better communicate with their audiences in performance. Above all, I hope to install in the a lifelong joy in learning and expressing music.
For beginning students who are children, I typically Start with Piano Adventures by Nancy and Randall Faber. Once student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for the recital performance. For adults, if student is beginner, I usually start with Alfred’s Adult Beginner book. If adult student already learned basic and start lessons again, I try to find out what the student is interested in. I try to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.
I believe that motivating and inspiring students requires a different approach. But 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 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 need.
Sunji, is professional, knowledgeable and both my girls really enjoy her lessons.
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
