General Notices

Hello everyone! I am Riny.

Working as a professional pianist, I put my effort into teaching as well. It has been a great experience for me to teach piano online. As I have moved to Poland, without this service, it would have been impossible for me to continue teaching my students in Japan--as well as teaching many students I newly met in Cafetalk!

My personal goal as a pianist is making my audience see the power of music, and teaching piano also helps me reach that goal. It is my great pleasure to see my students playing the piano with a full of joy! 

Also, if you are preparing for any competitions, I can listen to your piano to give you some advice. I have performed in many piano competitions in Japan and abroad before, so you can count on me. ☺
Let us have fun and fruitful piano lessons!

♪Welcome, New Students!

Even if you are completely new to piano, do not worry! We can start learning piano with me slowly but steadily! Students of all ages welcome.

♪For students with some previous experiences,

For those who have previous piano experience, or currently practicing piano for any competitions, you are also welcome to request my lessons! I would love to help you polish your performance by finding your strength in piano.

♪For students who play the piano for fun,

Do you play the piano as a hobby? If so, you are welcome to take my lessons! How do you hope to improve your piano? I can customize my lessons to meet your needs and wants! We can set a clear goal and work for it slowly and steadily.

♪We can practice any piece!  

Even though playing the classics seems popular in piano practice, you do not have to choose classical piece all the time. You can play pop songs in the piano, and it would be great if I can help you master your favorite pieces!

♪For those who cannot read musical scores,

Do not worry! We can start learning how to read musical scores slowly, starting from learning some basic knowledge of music.

I hope to empower many people with the joy of music! See you in my lessons!

♪Foundational Piano (for Children Under 12)

♪Beginners Piano

♪Elementary Piano

♪Intermediate and Advanced Piano

Either aiming to become a professional or not, I welcome you to my Pre-Intermediate lessons, in which we can learn piano and music in depth.
