Yvonne's Piano World provides piano and theory lessons to students of all levels. The studio is located at Pasadena, CA 91107, near the intersection of Pasadena, San Marino, and San Gabriel Valley. It is open to anyone with interest in learning piano.
I am a performer, and I also love teaching. Both of these are equivalent to me. When I perform, I share my personality and emotion with the audience; when I teach, I share my knowledge and perception of life with my students.
Piano teaching is not just showing how to play and asking students to follow. Instead, everybody can interpret music differently, according to her/his own individuality. Starting from telling the background of the piece, students and I picture the feelings behind the notes in our minds. We would try various ways of playing and taste the difference. After public performance, they appreciate and enjoy the pieces they just finished. This is the best moment for both the teacher and students.
Piano lessons should be enjoyable and tailored for each individual. Students from Yvonne's Studio have won many piano competitions, locally and internationally. More importantly, many former students still enjoy playing piano after they moved on to college. Music is a life-long journey to be carried on to the next generation!
