Get to know Maggie

Hi, my name is Sumei Zhao but you can call me Maggie. I joined Music & Arts in 2018 and teach piano at all levels. I provide customized lesson plans for each of my students as they all gravitate towards certain musical styles.

 

I use various method books to develop strong fundamentals; which in-turn creates a strong musical foundation on which the student can build. I focus on students' finger technique, sight reading, and ear training. I also incorporate music theory during the piano lessons so students also understand why the music sounds beautiful. As some of my students want to learn to play piano and sing at the same time, I also provide vocal training.

 

I believe every student has a different learning path and as a teacher, I am constantly learning from my students to develop and expand my teaching methods. Each of my students is on their own individual musical journey and no matter what genre of music they want to pursue in their life, I'm happy to be a part of it.
