Introduction: Hello! I am a lifelong musician with a wide range of education and experience in piano/music (classical, jazz, improvisation, composition, computer music). I studied music at Princeton and Stanford University and am an active composer and educator of music. You can check out some of my stuff on my website and in the portfolio below. I cater my teaching to suit each student's goals and needs, and always seek to help them learn and understand music in a holistic way, incorporating music theory, techniques, body movement, philosophy, etc. I have had 10+ students (ages 6 to 70+, beginner to intermediate) since I started teaching in 2019, and I am always learning and improving with the students! Online lessons are preferred right now, and all you really need is a laptop or a tablet and good internet connection to stream Zoom video calls. For in-person lessons, extra fees ($5-10) might apply depending on how much I need to travel (from Mountain View). Looking forward to working with you.

I've been taking lessons with Hana for the past few months and her guidance has been invaluable. I was doing method books and pieces on my own and watching YouTube videos but the ability to have Hana look and listen to my playing, and hone in on certain techniques and expressions makes it much easier to direct my practice. I also really enjoy the musical depth that Hana brings to our lessons, often telling me really deep ways to think about expressing my musicality on the piano. She also sends me technique videos and tips that she found, and being a very curious educator, is always interested in any interesting content I come across as well. This makes it really fun to nerd out with her on piano. I also think that a very important aspect of teaching is to be a motivator. If you don't feel inspired after every lesson, the practice will become tedious and you will eventually drop off. After my last lesson with Hana, a few days ago, I was feeling extremely inspired and excited about playing piano. I have practiced every day for the past month, yet after spending an hour with her, I was notably re-energized. I highly enjoy and appreciate time with Hana and look forward to continuing my classes and growth!

Hana is an amazing piano teacher. I’ve been taking lessons from her for almost 2 years now and I've been learning so much from her in every single lesson. She is very professional, extremely patient, and understanding. We work a lot on music composition and also on playing different classical pieces to get the technique right. The lessons are fun and challenging at the same time. Hana composes the music herself so it is very encouraging to listen to her playing and seeing the direction I want to grow as a piano player myself. I highly recommend Hana to anyone  who wants to learn how to play piano and how to progress.

It has been a very good experience with Hana, she is very patient in teaching, this right there can give you the desire to learn ; I would encourage any one who desires to learn how how to play a piano to get her as a teacher.
