Jessie Zhang piano instructor at David Adler Music and Arts Center

Piano

Preferred student age:

Ages 4 – adult

 

Teaching philosophy/style:

While I focus on developing a strong foundation in technique for classical piano, I always encourage students to have fun and enjoy the process. To maintain students’ interest, I integrate classical music with contemporary music. I implement techniques that are characteristic of a composer and songwriters of different kinds of music, such as blues, jazz, pop, and folk, so that students can understand music in a different perspective. I enjoy finding ways to keep students feel inspired and motivated.
