Personal Statement

The “average” child of today often learns at least one instrument and participates in sports or musical ensembles, in addition to other school and extracurricular activities.

Now, imagine if your child could learn an extraordinary skill applicable in all aspects of life; that helps them become truly great at what they do. Imagine a skill that allows your child to complete learning tasks at a fraction of the time compared to their peers; a skill that pushed musicians like Joshua Bell, Yundi Li, and Lang Lang, athletes like Jerry Rice, Michael Jordan, and Michael Phelps, comedian Chris Rock, Benjamin Franklin, and Warren Buffet, just to name a few, into the upper echelon of their respective fields.

Did they all take piano lessons? Most likely not. But the one common skill that propelled them to greatness can be learned and honed through piano lessons under the guidance of a knowledgeable and strategic piano teacher with an intimate understanding of this method of learning.

My goal in lessons at my piano studio is to introduce the different parts of this method through various aspects of piano learning, to get your child accustomed to this learning method, little by little, in their daily practice sessions. And in time, make it second nature to the way your child works so that they can apply the same principles to other parts of their life.

My experience and knowledge gained learning from one of the best and most experienced piano pedagogues in the country while completing my Master’s degree differentiates me from the vast majority of piano teachers. By completing all the piano pedagogy courses, I gained expertise and insight into teaching beginners, intermediate students, and adult students; combined with my master’s and bachelor’s piano performance degree from a music conservatory, it truly allows me to teach students of all levels without compromise.

I specializes in piano lessons for beginners between the ages of 5-7 and transfer students looking for a fresh start and to take their piano studies to the next level after commercial music studios. While providing a comprehensive view of the different musical periods, Kevin specializes in the Classical and Romantic repertoire, works by Beethoven, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, among others.
