My name is Kevin Kao and I'm a full-time professional piano teacher. I have a high quality, up-to-date piano studio both in teaching method and environment (in a profession that's easy to become stagnant and settle into dated methods of teaching and habits) with students ranging from 5 years old to 60 years old. My ultimate goal in piano lessons is for my students to become well-rounded, confident, individuals who are able to think critically, be sensitive to the world around them, and to love and appreciate classical musical for the rest of their lives. While my BM in piano performance from Cole Conservatory of Music compels me to upheld a high musical standard for my students I'm never for the pain-and-fear piano teaching methods of the past. Students and parents say that I'm encouraging, patient, fun, and easy-going, yet strict on musical standards. And lastly, that I'm professional and passionate about music. At my studio, you are guaranteed quality teaching because of my Master's degree from SDSU in piano performance along with completion of all the piano education classes (including child development as it relates specifically to piano lessons) and working personally with Dr. Mitzi Kolar (co-author of the Celebrate Piano Method books). Also, make sure to check out my answer on Thumbtack regarding my continued education in the field of piano education. To give students of my studio ample opportunities to be recognized and share their music, hard-work, and accomplishments with each other, my studio holds two recitals every year along with four informal, student-only, studio classes. Visit my website and come join all the successful, confident, and happy students at FreshStart Piano Studio :)

Title:  Expertise in Piano Pedagogy
Testimonial:  After interviewing with other piano teachers we decided to enroll in Kevin's studio because of his expertise and experience in how to teach piano. We really like the way he teaches. He is very thorough when introducing new songs, making practice at home a lot less work and frustrating for my daughter and me. My daughter especially likes when Kevin makes up accompaniment parts to play along with her songs.
