Get to know Jianan
Hello, my name is Jianan Mao, I received my piano performance degree at Xi'an Music Conservatory (China). I went to a music center and worked as a piano teacher for 3 years after I graduated. after that, I came to the United States and have graduated from SUNY Fredonia with one Master's degree in Music Therapy and one Bachelor's degree in Music Therapy. I have been practicing piano for 26 years. The learning experiences on music therapy provided me a wider perspective on how to instruct piano to various populations with different approaches. Although, classical piano playing is my speciality, I am also experienced with instrumental improvisation or free improvisation on pinao. In addition, if my student need to start with some simplified version of music they loves a lot, I can certainlly do the simplify for them and teach them how to get start with their favorite music piece! On the other hand, I have worked with my music therapy supervisor in several IEP class rooms at Hamburg High School District. I accquired many experiences on working with childrens with different needs.
