What others are saying about Daria:

Ms. Chung is extremely dedicated to the concept of education. She feels a strong sense of responsibility to the students in her classes and she takes their success very personally. She is also exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them and coaxes the very best effort from each and every one. And I think this is the reason that her students love her so much and made such a huge improvement on making their music in such a short period of time. Ms. Chung is clearly one of the best faculty I have worked with in the last 19 years.

Daria is an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher. She would lead the students patiently step by step to help them make the right sound needed for the piece. She is willing to repeat as many times as possible until the students finally understand the idea. I have seen many students be amazed at the sound they were able to produce after her coaching.

Daria is a very sincere and caring person. She is able to understand and relate to many different people with various environments which must be the reason she was able to successfully teach various students and work in different environments. Also, she has given many performances for charity for the people in need for help.

Special Skills
Daria has given numerous solo recitals throughout the United States of America, Europe and Korea including New York Debut Solo Recital at Weill Recital at Carnegie Hall as an award recipient. She has also appeared in various chamber ensembles as a soloist and operas as main soprano roles.

Educational Background

Alyssa started taking piano lessons when she was a child, and to this day continues to learn all she can to better herself as a pianist and a teacher.  She studied music theory at Trinity Baptist Bible College, while also singing in the choir. Alyssa participates heavily in the music program of her local church, performing solos regularly and accompanying other performers.

Teaching Background

Alyssa has been teaching since February 2016. Her students love her and have done well under her instruction.  She held her first recital in May 2016, and six out of her then eight students participated.  She started with only two students, and in a short time teaches more than 12 students thanks to her students referring her — a true sign of happy students and parents!

Personality & Teaching Style

Alyssa loves to have fun with her lessons, whether the student is 4 or 40.  She also knows that students will have more fun the more they progress, and so she tries to work with her students to set and accomplish clear goals, both big and small.  Alyssa also likes to get to know her students personally, and to learn what motivates each student to play piano and use that as a basis for growth.

What others are saying about Alyssa:

Alyssa is a fantastic piano teacher.  Her patience, knowledge, and encouragement is the same whether you are 5 or 45.  My son and I both take lessons from Alyssa, and we love her!

Arlington, TX

Alyssa’s strengths as a piano teacher are that she knows what sections of a piece need to be polished.  As my student, I can tell when she has put her mind to accomplishing a certain goal.

Arlington, TX

Alyssa is a wonderful piano teacher.  My son and I love her teaching style and she is very good at teaching students at any level.  She is an encouraging teacher and teaches in a positive way.

Grand Prairie, TX

Special Skills

Alyssa loves teaching the younger-aged kids with fun curriculums that introduce music concepts through characters and songs that get the student moving and learning even away from the piano.  It is amazing to watch young minds explore and grow through music.  She also specializes in sacred music, although all styles of music will be taught through the curriculum.

We are proud to introduce Natalie, another one of our star teachers. Image

Natalie began learning piano at the age of four and continued to study music with different instructors in China’s rigorous and competitive musical culture. During her musical training in China she passed the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music piano exam with a high score. She also holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from the Texas Woman’s University’s School of the Arts.  

Natalie has been teaching piano since 2008 and has experience teaching children in private and group lessons.

Natalie’s goal for her piano lessons is to let her students feel the joy of music and be touched by the soul of it. Music is a unique form of expression and communication which has the ability to connect people. Every piano student is unique, therefore Natalie’s methods in teaching each student will vary according to his or her personality and musical knowledge. Learning piano is much more than learning how to press fingers on the keys; it is about expressing feelings and emotions. Natalie’s students will certainly learn to play songs, but Natalie doesn’t stop there. Her students will learn to understand the theory behind the music they play. Natalie is passionate about connecting with each of her students and sincerely cares about her students’ music progress.

Styles & Methods Natalie can teach include: Beginner, Classical, Chord Approach, Pop, Hymns, Group Piano Classes, Competition Preparation, Piano Accompaniment, Music Theory. Natalie is also good at composition and has been writing songs for church since 2009. She is bilingual and capable of teaching Chinese.
