Music instructor with 8 years of teaching experience gives creative piano, music theory and vocal training lessons in Montreal!

Methodology

I am very detail-oriented, patient and flexible. I base my classes on four core principles that I believe are necessary for a positive learning environment:

1. Making sure we're enjoying ourselves and growing at the same time.
2. Making sure we're both learning from each other, as a student and as a teacher.
3. Making sure you (my student) have more motivation every time you have a lesson with me.
4. Making sure we're helping each other gain confidence, express ourselves and find out what makes us special.

In my piano lessons, I am perfectly comfortable teaching classical, modern, film and pop music. For other genres, I require my students to be willing to learn to read music properly as I don't teach/play by ear or chords only. If you want to play a song so badly, and there is no sheet music available, I'd offer to write it for you for free :)

In my vocal lessons, I mainly focus on teaching you how to free your voice, breathe properly, do physical and technical warmups, improve your vocal abilities, expand your range, and express your unique style. I am classically trained however I believe when you receive the proper vocal training, you can try many genres and styles as I discovered pop, jazz, and blues to be as challenging and sometimes even more fun! If I have the time, I'd offer to accompany you on the Piano or possibly teach you to play and sing at the same time :)

In my music theory lessons, I focus on reading music properly, the simple math behind every rule, rudiments, ear training and solfege (pitch and sight singing).

Background

I am an urban designer/researcher by day and a music instructor by evening (and on weekends :D). My true passion in life is producing knowledge and sharing it with others in any way that I can. I just moved to Montreal from Toronto, and I cannot wait to meet my new students in this beautiful city!

I have been playing the piano professionally for 21 years, singing in choir for 16 years, and singing professionally for 6 years. I started giving private piano, music theory and voice lessons 8 years ago and have worked with students from 5 years old to 70, in both private and group sessions, from complete beginner to Royal Conservatory of Music piano and voice certificate. I have prepared many students for recitals, musical theater, and group performances and do enjoy accompanying them on the stage if we have the chance!

I have had the opportunity to work with thriving music studios such as StudioVivian, Sarv academy, and Pars institute in the recent past, and have the privilege of being a part of an amazing network of people who are passionate about music, knowledge, and having a good time!

Kiana is a wonderful teacher and she taught me how to play the piano. She is a great teacher because she listens and helps me solve the problems I faced while I was learning the piano. I enjoyed all the classes I had with her.

Her positive attitude and passion for piano is contagious and is sure to foster a lifelong passion for music in all her students. If you want someone who cares about music and you, look no further than Kiana!

Kiana's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Kiana — I started playing the Piano when I was 5. My dad bought me John Thompson's easiest piano course books and I finished them in a week. "Huh, I guess you're interested in Piano then!" he said. I went on to take classical piano lessons at the conservatory of music all the way as well as coaching myself for the next 21 years. In the meanwhile, I joined the youth choir and discovered I also enjoy singing, an interest that I developed more professionally by taking opera voice lessons and performing with several choirs and bands as soloist/vocalist. In my twenties, I developed an interest for other instruments such as Ocarina, Flute, Kalimba and Cello, as well as other genres like jazz, ambient, alternative rock, fusion and modern classical music.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Kiana — Music is a part of my identity that never changes. It is my safe place in this bizarre world. I simply couldn't live without it. It might be the purest thing that we, as human beings, have ever created. There is no certainty in this world, but I could easily believe music is forever!
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Kiana — My true passion in life is creating knowledge, or passing it on so someone else can create it one day, or pass it along. It is this chain effect of knowledge sharing that makes my heart beat faster. That is why for me the most honorary work is to teach, because I believe education is the only thing powerful enough to save us all.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Kiana — One of my university professors changed my view towards education and how we communicate in class. He used to mime, use peculiar visual aids, and give us temporary roles in class to showcase the power of knowledge communication. The next semester, I became his teaching assistant, learned how to go beyond traditional teaching methods and think bigger than institutional standards.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Kiana — I believe "success" is a subjective and complex concept to define, as it is different for each one of us. For me personally, success is not about money, fame or power. It is knowing that I have reached my true potential and cannot do better. It is only then that I feel "happy" and satisfied with myself. Keys to achieving this would be to write down my vision/mission statement, learn more about myself everyday, accept my strengths and weaknesses, and come up with short term/long term strategies that will get me where I want to be while making sure I am enjoying my life!
