The Music Unlocked Difference
Li-San is the only piano teacher in Washington State who teaches students how to read music, while also being able to transpose music (play a piece in different keys), and incorporates an advanced understanding of music theory and chords, even from the beginning stage. All aspects of learning music are integrated into a comprehensive whole, so that students apply learned concepts in multiple ways, whether it be performing, improvising, arranging, or composing.
Li-San teaches repertoire, theory, scales, chords, and rhythm patterns in a way that reveals the bigger picture so that students can play delightful music early in their piano education, and be motivated by visibly increasing skill level to continue playing the piano for years.
Li-San explains every topic clearly and precisely. She has a great passion for music, therefore becoming a role model for all students.
Caters To Visual & Auditory Learning Styles
Students are playing music they enjoy and understanding the theory behind it, because Li-San combines the best of different methods to teach each student, without neglecting fundamental knowledge or skills.
Li-San's students learn to read sheet music and develop proper technique, so that they can perform various styles of music, and even have the option to achieve their first piano exam certificate within just 18 months of beginning lessons.
In addition, they memorize and play beautiful pieces in multiple keys and positions on the piano. This allows them to play by ear, improvise, play in a band, and have fun creating their own music.
A solid foundation of integrated knowledge built during the first 2-3 years of lessons, means that students can create their own arrangements of popular tunes.
This sets up the student to be a confident performer and create original compositions, which leads to their lifelong enjoyment of music.
Li-San is a very professional piano teacher. She is very patient to my 5-year little boy and has her tactics to let the kids get interested in playing piano. My son has been learning piano with Li-San for 10 months.Now he is able to play duets very well, read music, and stay in time with the accompaniment. I highly recommend Li-San if you are looking for a good piano teacher.
