Nina Piano Lessons specializes in Piano Lessons for kids age 5 and up and Online Piano Lessons! We want every child to know the joy of making music at the piano, which is a quote from Frances Clark and our Studio Philosophy! Mrs. Nina also believe that in order to play any kind of repertoire (whether it be baroque, classical, romantic, or pop), you first need to understand and work on the fundamental principles of piano technique; body movement/rhythm, basic music theory understanding, and ear training development. Then, of course, a warm, approachable, professional piano instructor will always inspire students to improve and love the music they play. These are the reasons why, even though Mrs. Nina has started teaching piano at the age of 18, she established Nina Piano Lessons in 2009 and contributed herself to providing professional yet enjoyable piano lesson for kids who love music and piano in Bay Area, California. Nina Piano Lessons also offers CM / RCM/ ABRSM Certificate training, student recital performance, and open competitions opportunities.
