My son attended piano lessons at a local music school for over a year, and during that time worked with two teachers. When his second teacher decided to relocate back to the East Coast I asked her to help me select a new instructor and brought her a list of possibilities. After reviewing their professional biographies, she told me without hesitation to try to arrange lessons with Dr. Kao. Since beginning lessons with Dr. Kao, Ive come to realize how vast the difference is between a teacher who can show a student the basics, and one who has the exceptional level of training, experience, and ability that Dr. Kao has. Shes accessible and adjusts her teaching to both the ability and temperament of the student. Shes dedicated to the progress of her pupils, setting out clear expectations and goals, with an emphasis on technique and accuracy. Her students range from young beginners to adults in advanced academic programs, and she scales her instruction deftly to match their needs. Finally, her membership in multiple professional associations means that her students have access to a variety of performance and recital opportunities. I would absolutely recommend lessons with her to anyone looking to advance their own studies, or to provide an excellent opportunity for their child.Dec 24, 2019Review from Google
My daughter started taking piano lesson with Dr. Kao one year ago, right after we had experienced two teacher turnover in another piano studio in Bellevue. Dr. Kao has excellent background in piano performance and pedagogy. She sets high standards for her students. At the same time, she is very personable and knows how to engage kids and motivate them to practice. She helped my daughter rebuild piano foundations and interests in music. My daughter now enjoys her daily practice and uses the challenges to build up her techniques and confidence. I know Dr. Kao also has adult students. She has been influential by sharing her piano teaching and learning philosophy. The tips becomes very helpful when parents and students face challenges and reach bottlenecks. I highly recommend Dr. Kao to all future piano students.Nov 13, 2019Review from Google
My son began studying piano with Dr. Kao 2 years ago as a beginning student. Learning the piano is a special challenge for a 5 years old, yet Dr. Kao has shown unending patience and flexibility in her teaching.She crafts her lessons around my sons interests and enables him to progress at his own pace, always encouraging but never placing undue demands or expectations on him. As a teacher she invoked her long musical career and her own virtuosity on the piano in ways that enhance students understanding of piano history, styles, and techniques. She also weaves in plenty of music theory, trying theory to practice in a way that makes her lesson more holistic and accessible. Her passion for the piano is infectious and is always punctual for our lessons. She is always flexible whenever I need to reschedule a lesson due to obligations. I highly recommend Dr. Kao as a piano teacher and happy about my sons progrssOct 17, 2019Review from Google
My Son started learning piano with Dr. Kao 1.5 years ago. Before that he had been learning piano for around 3 years and met bottlenecks of further progress. His foundation is not solid and his figures still had lots problems. And he felt quite bad about piano. We almost gave up. Dr. Kao used her specific patience to work with him, made him feel better about piano. And she chose classical textbook to address his foundation problems instead of pushing him to finish some pieces which were extremely mission impossible for him. My son figures and basic foundations improved a lot after one year's practice. More importantly, he feels much better about piano now. Thanks so much for Dr. Kao's professionalism patience and companion! We believed he will achieve more in the following years with the help of Ms. Kao.Nov 4, 2019Review from Google
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?There is no free consultation and free lesson from me. I work faithfully and honestly. Upon receiving the fee, you will receive the link to the lesson with a document explaining the equipments we need and setting. In that first consultation/lesson, we will be working together directly to: 1) start our first piano lesson, and/or 2) perform an in-depth evaluation and give comments, and 3) plan the future path. Our first lesson will be much longer than the usual lesson because I always take extra time to help students to adjust the equipments/setting and take time to answer the specific questions. Thus, the discount has been computed in the first meeting with those additional time.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I only offer the remote teaching currently. Any requests for in-person lessons do not work right now.

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I graduated from the top-tier music conservatory in the world, and my teachers were at the top-tiers in their specialties. Piano Performance, Music Theory, Music History, and Piano Pedagogy have been my core studies altogether since the very beginning. I had professional trainings for 30 years, and thus I was trained to pay attention to everything. Pretty much, I am interested in keeping improving myself in the related works. I am able to handle students at all levels, including beginners, amateurs, piano majors in both undergraduate and graduate levels, etc.
