Group picture from Fall recital . . .

I provide private piano instruction in the Northern Virginia area to students of all ages and levels I thoroughly enjoy sharing music with my students.

Under my instruction, they learn technique and theory with a strong emphasis on musicianship. I expose my students to a broad range of repertoire and give the students the opportunity to choose much of the music that they play. I recognize the individuality of each student and seek to provide a method that is tailored to the unique learning style of each student. Above all, I aim to provide a posi


Been a long time since I posted here! My heart is so full after another successful recital. Everyone came to my house and we put our recital on in the street/driveway due to the squishy conditions!

Just a few obstacles the students had to play through: unfamiliar keyboard/bench combination, weird pedal/pedal platform, wind blowing papers around, cars honking, birds chirping, my kids being loud.... thankfully the Amazon truck came right before the recital!!! Anyway, they played so beautifully despite the many distractions and gave me the most beautiful gift- a silver music box shaped like a grand piano with all of the students’ names engraved on the top. And a beautiful card with sweet notes from each student. I couldn’t imagine a better gift.

One highlight of the recital was a personalized audio message from the amazing Jennifer Eklund, who composes so much of the music we love to play in our studio!!!🤩 If I could guarantee 75 degree weather in June, I’d do it again just like this next year!!!! What a great day!!!


Janita Cheriyan entered her required Festival piece “Prairie Wind” into the preliminaries of the Mary Smart competition. Her fantastic performance yesterday at the competition earned her a spot in the finals next month! Go Janita!!!! Congratulations!

Bittersweet seeing these guys go. Headed off to UVA, William and Mary, and UMD (left to right). If that's not an advertisement for keeping your kids in music lessons through grade 12, I don't know what is!

Very honored to have been able to play for the All-County (Loudoun) Chamber Choir this weekend. Amazing singers and a legendary conductor!!! Hoping to get some pictures soon. :)


Thank you to the students who attended the Fall Community Outreach recital at Sunrise Assisted Living in Fair Oaks! They brought joy to the residents with their expressive playing, and graciously served refreshments afterwards. I am so proud of them! We also welcomed Oliver Tam to the stage for a cameo, singing "Truce" with his sister Virginia!

Hoping the whole studio will be able to make it to our next outreach recital on December 10th!


Looking forward to sharing our talents in the community this weekend! Fall Outreach Recital at Sunrise Senior Living in Fair Oaks on Sunday at 1:30pm!

For Tracy, with love.

Friends. On Friday my brother's wife, Tracy went into cardiac arrest next to him in his car. Since then we have been surrounding him and her with prayer asking for healing of my sister in law. They have 4 incredible children including their infant daughter. I am asking you for your help for them. We have been generously surrounded by love prayers, food for the baby, food for us, and are deeply blessed by the outpouring of support. What is most needed in the immediate future is both continued prayer and financial support. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for any donation you can make and for sharing Tracy's story with as many people as you can so that my brother can focus 100% of his attention on Tracy and the children's needs. http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/for-tracy-with-love-/143339

www.youcaring.com Completely unexpectedly, Tracy experienced cardiac arrest on Friday, February 21st. Join us in supporting her husband and four amazing kiddos (ages 3 months-12 years) as she recovers.

メトロノーム同期 (32個)

Not Quite György Ligeti's Poème symphonique, but still impressive

複数のメトロノームを動く台の上に乗せてメトロノームを動かすと,やがて全てのメトロノームが同期して同じタイミングで音を刻むことが知られています. 池口研究室では,メトロノームを乗せる台を左右から吊るすことで台が動くような実験装置を作成し,同期実験を行いました.本動画では32個のメトロノームが同じタイミングで音を刻みます.


Welcome the newest member of the studio, my niece Annabelle!
