I have never met a person who regretted taking piano lessons!

Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun.

My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship.

Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

Ivan is the best, he really worked with my daughter and she enjoys her lessons a lot. She's learned a lot in a short period of time. Ivan is very effective with the online format we chose to use during the pandemic. Couldn't be happier.

I've been teaching music for over 12 years and I am now developing a new method for learning piano based on my own experience in learning and teaching music. This method teaches piano technique in a creative, custom and exciting way. All lesson plans are created specific to each student to ensure students are getting exactly what they need to grow as musicians. Along with learning piano students will learn to read, write music and ultimately sight read music at the piano. I enjoy sharing the gift of music with with new students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Online Piano Teacher

I am a certified Steinway education partner with over 17 years of teaching experience.

As a professional musician, I love sharing my passion of making music with others. Whether you are totally new to piano or a seasoned player wishing to brush up your skills, I can help you develop a more in-depth experience with piano. During lessons I emphasize skills such as correct note-reading, attention to details in the music, developing proper technique, critical thinking and listening, creative problem-solving, efficient practice, and exploring new repertoire. To encourage growth and consistent improvement, I recommend all my students to perform once or twice a year in my student recitals at Steinway Hall but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level.

I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of my students. All I ask for is a commitment to make music an integral part of your life. Whatever your skill level and personal goals may be, I will help you ...

I started from the ground up with Yoon Jae with no previous musical experience and within a couple of months I’m really starting to feel confident and regularly progressing with my studies. He takes the time to help me fully understand what I’m doing as well and how to practice correctly with notes and smaller steps to comprehend what is being played. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a top notch piano teacher.

I was very nervous before my first lesson, I was a complete beginner and was about to play in front of someone for the first time. All of my worries went away though during that first lesson and we got to know one another. I never felt any judgment but instead felt inspired to keep practicing and learning. Not once did he get impatient with me even though we were working on extremely beginner songs. He has helped me reach my goal I had started out with and helped me set new ones to start working towards.

My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to play music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to play and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.

"I have never played a musical instrument or taken lessons. And yet I love music. When I retired I decided to take piano lessons. A friend referred me to James and honestly raved about his method of teaching.
I have been taking lessons from James for less than two months and I am feeling so confident about everything I have learned so far. I knew nothing about a note or a chord and now I do!
He is a great teacher and so easy to understand. If you don’t get it , he explains a different way until you do.
I told him I was taking lessons for fun and never wanted to be a concert pianist.
I am having great fun with the music and learning is helping me clear up my head.
I very highly recommend James to Seniors and young people. He emanates the love he has for music and teaching it.
Best thing I have done for myself in a very long time. I am very excited about my lessons."
