It is gratifying to witness students' musical growth, and that in turn fuels and inspires me throughout my day.
I have been teaching piano for 15 years and enjoy working with a wide range of age groups and levels. I maintain a private studio in Belmont, CA and have taught piano at Cañada College since 2014. Before joining the Music Department at Cañada, I was on the piano faculty at Community School of Music and Arts (CSMA) in Mountain View, and served as a staff accompanist at San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Stanford University Music Department, as well as music assistant at the Shanghai American School. I have conducted workshops and outreach programs at several elementary schools in the Bay Area. I am actively involved in the local music community and serve on the board of Music Teachers’ Association of California San Mateo County Branch.
As a teacher my goal is to help students learn the fundamentals of playing, to develop technique that allows playing with ease and nuance, and to instill a longlong appreciation for classical music. My teaching approach is rooted in rigorous conservatory training and the lessons I've learned from my own teachers and mentors. My students have successfully participated in Certificate of Merit, ABRSM, and college placement tests.
Lessons are 30, 45, and 60 minutes. Students are required to attend a short audition for placement in the studio. To learn more, please email me.
