Piano Instructor with 10+ Years of Teaching Experience Gives Creative Lessons for All Levels

Methodology

Learning to read music is fun, essential, and can unimaginably expand your musical abilities. I use the RCM method (Royal Conservatory of Music) for folks who are interested in classical and contemporary styles, and the Alfred adult method for those interested in more popular and folklore styles. We use Hanon to quickly develop a comfortable posture, and play scales, chords, and arpeggios to understand the building blocks of music. Each week, we also work on a bunch of pieces tailored to your interests from our method books, online open archives, or your list of all-time favourites!

Background

I started playing the piano when I was 5 and have been playing for 23 years now. After finishing my training at the conservatory of music, I started giving private piano, music theory, and voice lessons and have worked with students from complete beginner to advanced levels. I have prepared many students for recitals, musical theater, and group performances and do enjoy accompanying them on the stage if we ever have the chance!
I have had the opportunity to work with thriving music studios such as Studio Vivian, Sarv academy, and Pars Institute in the past, and have the privilege of being a part of an amazing network of people who are passionate about music education and having a good time :)

Perfect! The first lesson was great - my son was super positive afterwards and has responded well in the lesson. There is some good focus on the technique (hand/body positioning) as well as the music and a good blend of keeping it light as well as learning.

Joanna

Perfect! Kiana is not only a great musician but a great teacher!

I had doubts about whether lessons were worth it and so far I'm glad I decided to give it a go! She is very knowledgeable, methodical and organised, which has so far really helped structure and explain what I had previously learnt on my own. She is attentive to mistakes and provides ways to correct those while always remaining encouraging. She goes above and beyond, even sending typed out personalised notes after every lesson! I have no idea how she teaches kids but I can certainly recommend her to fellow adults!

H
Hana

Perfect! My first lesson with Kiana was quite insightful. I actually didn't expect much from the first lesson. However, she managed to teach me a good overview in a short time. Someone who's genuine, professional, patient and willing to help their student to achieve their goals.

F
Francis

Perfect! Kiana has all the qualities you would expect from a great teacher! She's very fun to work with and her seemingly infinite patience motivates us to practice more. For every situation she'll offer the right tip and the guidance she provides is very motivating. The curriculum she's presenting is very clear and unambiguous yet she'll tailor the course according to our musical taste and ambition. I'm really happy to have found such a great teacher and every week I'm looking forward to my next class. I highly recommend Kiana as teacher!

S
Sam

Perfect! Kiana is a great teacher - I am 26 and had no previous musical experience but now look forward to my piano lessons every week. Kiana is patient, keeps things fun and I notice myself getting better after every lesson. She is open to tailoring her lessons to what kind of music you are interested in and what skills you want to learn. Would highly recommend!

L
Lisa

Perfect! The lessons are fun and we laugh a lot. She is very precise in her instructions and sets the bar high for learning to play with good technique from the beginning. I appreciate her knowledge, and also flexibility.

P
Pierre-Olivier

Perfect! Kiana is very knowledgeable and has a great repertoire of techniques and trainings she picks from to better help her students.

She is perspicuous and has a very apparent passion for teaching.

As a complete beginner in singing, I was not particularly looking forward to sing in front of someone I had just met.
Kiana put me at ease and cheered me on. She is a big part of why I soldier on down the intricate path of singing.

T
Trevor

Perfect! Kiana is great! She gets straight to the point and has a vast knowledge of exercises to pick from to help with many parts of the voice and singing. This is especially nice since she is able to change up the exercises so the lessons never get stale. I have never sung before, so I needed a ton of help with pitch, breathing, etc. I feel like every lesson with Kiana I have a mini breakthrough and my voice keeps improving week after week. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!

Z
Zach

Perfect! Kiana is an amazing tutor with so much to give. She is incredibly knowledgeable and she will always give you personalized advice. An amazing teacher, you won't regret her!

M
Marina

Perfect! My first time taking singing lessons and honestly, couldn’t be happier! Kiana’s a great teacher with a deep understanding of methodologies, so she easily adapts her teaching to your level and sets off to make sure that you reach your goals. Super helpful in helping you understand your mistakes and very patient and enthusiastic. Would definitely recommend.

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!
