Faculty

In selecting a teacher, we consider not only performance and teaching skills, but a teacher’s personality. We look for that balance of discipline and caring that motivates students to improve. Our teachers hold Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees from Cleveland, Peabody, UCI, USC, Vienna City Conservatory (Austria), and more. We also hold frequent seminars for teachers to exchange teaching skills and techniques to improve their teaching.
