One day ...

in September, 2019, a mother and  daughter visited my studio for an introductory lesson. Her daughter started enjoying playing piano and her mother signed her daughter up for lessons two times a week. Who would have imagined that several months later, there would be no in person piano lessons because of COVID19...

Recently, I received a heartfelt message from the mother...

"It's been a major upside to this whole stay at home experience...I really have no idea what this would be like if she didn't have music...definitely something that she recognizes she didn't get to do during school...and makes her feel really happy that she's clearly excelling and improving at something. She's having so much fun with it…

My daughter has been loving the extra time to play's such a joy to watch her develop and to love music--all because of you, Machiko Music!"

We often ask students if there are any songs they want to learn besides songs in the traditional piano learning method books. One day, Izaac told me that he wanted to learn “All of Me” by John Legend


It’s amazing to see how students improve their learning skills once they find a favorite song. They are determined and motivated to practice on their own. Even if there are tricky rhythms or unfamiliar notes to play, nothing can stop them. I am very proud of them!




Machiko Music creates a fun & positive environment for students. 

Here are just a few ways that we incorporate FUN into our piano lessons:

  • The use of unique & fun music apps for ipads and tablets 

  • Introduce a variety of music (classical, jazz and pop)

  • The use of music theory games 

  • Helping students learn the music THEY want to play

  • Annual recital

Machiko has been a patient and inspiring teacher for my daughter. She has her very own style and approach which fully engages and motivates my daughter. With a willful and quiet child who doesn't like to practice much, it is important for her to feel understood and Machiko does. With Machiko my daughter is both learning and loving piano. We are so grateful to have found her.
