Piano Lesson(Studio/In-home) in Upper West/East Side & Dumbo, Brooklyn

Methodology

After teaching students of all ages and levels for years, Catherine decided to offer lesson at her studio in Upper West Side.

The studio offers piano/music theory/composition weekly one-on-one lesson.

[Catherine’s studio’s teaching motto]

-Individualized teaching approach

-Challenge and encouragement

-Parent’s involvement

[Lesson Style]
Catherine believes playing an instrument "well" requires lots of understanding of details about the instrument and the music. A music score is an instruction on how and which note to play and it's the performer's creativity that embellishes the result(performance). Catherine has been teaching her students piano lessons with music theory to learn how to read the score and understand all the details(rhythm, note, sound, articulations, form, etc.) so that they not only learn how to play the instrument but also learn about general knowledge of music that they can apply to any instrument or other styles of music. Catherine motivates her students to take a step forward after every accomplishment by guiding them to their next realistic goal. She also encourages parents to actively involve themselves in developing their children’s learning.
