JIAO SUN PIANO STUDIO
PIANO LESSONS & CLASSES
Teaching piano has always been one of my many passions - I especially love to bring music to others' lives and to help them playing piano on their own. With ten years of teaching experience, I have taught piano lessons and classes for a wide variety of ages and levels for both music and non-music majors - older adults (includes beginners), college students (from doctoral to undergraduate), young beginners. Currently, I remain faculty at Ohio University School of Music after teaching in the secondary piano department at Cincinnati-Conservatory of Music and Eastman School of Music. I have joined on jury for international level piano competitions and in United States and in Asia. Many of my students have participated in MTNA events, local festivals, and school recitals.

From CCM Piano Lesson
“Ms. Sun is particularly thorough and listens to the student's concerns regarding technique and musicality. She is a joy to work with and is very professional and thoughtful. She is just fantastic. She is clear and understanding. Can't wait to take lessons in the Spring. She is very good at identifying technique problems and fixing them.”
