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!
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 :)
~~Music is forever~~
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.
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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 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.
Patient, smart, and always makes learning fun. A great teacher!
Kiana isn't just an exceptional musician but a great role model and caring teacher who motivates her students to be the best they can be. 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 taught me piano and voice for two years, and she has always been positive, ambitious, and passionate. She has great faith in the potential of her students and she will go great lengths to instill within them a lifelong passion for music.
She was my piano teacher.
she has a very good knowledge and she though me a lot.
she was always creative and she tried to make me happy by giving me the pieces that I like.
I recommend her because she is excellent teacher and she helped me a lot and I learned lots of things from her.
An extremely dedicated, hardworking individual who isn't just an amazing teacher but truly lives and breathes music. If you want someone to instill their passion for music into you, she's the one.
Kiana and I went to graduate school together, and she is a very bright, industrious individual. She works hard and diligently on things, and has a great attitude. She will work well with a wide range of different competencies. Highly recommend her.
