ABOUT ME

A Dedicated Piano Teacher

I started to play the piano when I was three years old, and I never stopped loving it.  I grew up studying the piano in Japan and moved to the United States when I was twenty-nine years old. I have been teaching a large number of  students in La Canada Flintridge and the Pasadena, Ca area since 2005. I love working with students of all ages and abilities and get so much satisfaction from seeing how they grow and develop in their skills and performances. I am continuing to take my own piano lessons to keep updating my practices and researches.  I am a member of MTNA(Music Teachers National Association) and hold certifications in piano teaching.

Besides teaching, I love to cook, bake, make vegan chocolate candies, and spend time with my family!!

TEACHING APPROACHES

I believe in top-quality musical instruction that will give the student a lifelong appreciation of music. Each person has a different strength to learn. I personalize your instruction based on your strengths. At the same time, I focus on teaching how to read and feel the music. Also I emphasize self-exploration through artistic performances of various styles of music. Each lesson includes a weekly creative and detailed practice instruction that you can work on in your home. I create performance opportunities, and I also teach different types of piano lessons.
