I have studied with respected pianists including Yumiko Valet, Midori Kataoka and Atsuhiko Shimizu.
I have been teaching piano for 8 years at a Music school in Japan and I am also currently teaching at a Music school in the UK. My students have ranged from 4 years to over 70 years old and I have taught students of all abilities from beginner to advanced level.
I have trained students for their concerts and competitions of which many students went on to win prizes.
I have an individual approach to each student and use a variety of teaching methods including the YAMAHA method to achieve their goal.
I always focus on the development of the individual’s skill and building confidence in both their technique and emotional expression. I endeavor to pass on my enthusiasm for the piano to all of my students.
I can also teach music theory to gain synthetic musical knowledge.
I’m happy to teach all ages and all levels.
