Introduction: There are two things in life that I knew that I wanted to do since I was a young girl. The first was to pursue a life of music, where I could play the instruments that I love, the Violin and Piano. The second was to share that love of music with others through teaching. Just like how my teachers helped me, I want to be a part of helping other students find their own love for music. My time in Taiwan, Germany, and the United States showed me how across different cultures, teachers approach sharing that message. I believe that my diverse background studying music in several different continents, countries, and cultures will bring a unique perspective to music that would benefit students. Whether it's violin, viola or piano, I hope to help people find their own joy in music!

I feel very fortunate to have found Iris as my piano teacher. I am an adult student and l have been studying classical piano with her for more than a year. She helps me set solid foundations (finger techniques, sight reading and some music theory) in my piano journey. Her teaching is personalized to my music preferences (she gives me enough agency to pick pieces that I love that suit my level) and life circumstances (she gives me just the right amount of assignments every week). She sets me up for challenges that are just a little beyond my comfort level so I can progress without feeling frustrated. Her love for music touches and inspires me, every time I have a lesson with her. I highly recommend her as a teacher for adults interested in playing the piano.

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student can read music • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Classical • Yes, the student has a piano • 45 minutes • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

My 8 year old daughter says she absolutely loves taking piano lessons with Iris. And most importantly, she is absorbing and learning a lot with each lesson. Iris is clear, patient, friendly and intelligent in her approach. She is consistent in setting up appointments and a true professional in all aspects.

Iris is truly the best! She is an absolute pro for both playing and teaching. She can break down musical concepts for easy understanding and always gives great insight to improve technique. The exercises and books she recommended matched my experience level (beginner) and we were able to build from there with lessons. She is easy to get along with and most importantly (in my opinion) has the patience of a saint. Go with Iris!

I have had a positive experience with Iris as a violin and piano teacher for my two kids. She has been teaching my 7-year-old son piano and my 5-year-old daughter violin for the past year. Iris is skilled at teaching both instruments and she has a talent for adapting her teaching style to fit each child's individual needs. For example, my son is a good listener and she has helped him practice transcribing notes to improve his focus. My daughter, on the other hand, can be a little wiggly at times, so Iris came up with a creative solution by using a cardboard cutout with her name on it to help her stay focused during lessons. Overall, I am very pleased with the progress that both of my kids have made under Iris's tutelage and I would definitely recommend her as a teacher.
