Dr. Kingma is an incredible teacher. I studied with him for four years, during both my bachelors and masters degrees in Piano Performance, and he completely transformed me as a pianist. He knows exactly how to help with any technical problem, but the focus is always on the music and how to make every moment as beautiful as possible. He listens carefully and is able to articulate very specifically what needs improvement, both in the details and in regards to the whole. He is encouraging, gracious, and inspires students to work to the best of their ability by setting high standards. Dr. Kingma is the best teacher I have ever worked with and I would highly recommend him to any pianist wanting to study seriously.

I have had Dr. Kingma as my piano instructor since I started college two years ago. I look forward to my lesson every week because I know he will help me improve and better understand some musical area of my playing. He is not a boring teacher. He is passionate about what he teaches and it reflects in his lessons. I like how he explains a concept during a lesson, and also demonstrates it when needed. I find this helpful especially when I do not fully understand a concept.

I couldn't ask for a better teacher than Dr. Kingma for my daughter. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and detailed in lessons. Most importantly, he sees where she could be in the future and how to get her there. She is progressing so much, is finally content, and I've never seen her happier.

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First trial lesson is completely free with no obligations!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with my DMA, where I studied with Anton Nel. I earned his BM and MM at Rice University under the tutelage of Robert Roux. I've competed and won prizes at international competitions, so I know what it takes to perform at the highest level. My goal is to use my education and experience to help younger pianists accomplish their pianistic dreams.
