ABOUT TEACHERS

Robin Cho

Director, Piano Instructor

Hello! My name is Robin Cho and I am the director of Pianoberries Music Studio.

When I first started teaching, I was teaching the way I was taught. I started my piano studies when I was 6 and studied with a classical piano repertoire. Through the study, I gained strong sightreading skill, perfect pitch, good technique and expressive artistry. Importantly, I became to find my passion for piano so I pursued my career by entering Berklee College of Music and became a professional pianist, composer, and teacher. My training worked for me so I believed my training and taught my students with a method that I was taught.

As my teaching years were added, I became to think differently. I believe traditional method would give a strong foundation for the students but what about students who don’t get interested much and quit too soon before building it? Piano study is a journey and needs dedication. And this dedication comes from inspiration. In my lessons, Students are guided through a comprehensive study which covers all aspects of rhythm, technique, theory and sight reading with a variety of music from classical literature to popular and jazz. I explore music from any genre students enjoy including rock, jazz, contemporary, movies, Broadway and world music. Because each student is unique and hear, interpret, and express music differently, the student’s curriculum is always tailored to the student’s interests and goals.

Once students find the music they love they bring out all important life skills including concentration, grit, patience, perseverance to master it. Recitals and performances are also an important element of a students piano studies. These provide an opportunity for the students to share their gifts and talents with the audience and interact with other students.

As a teacher, I desire to cultivate a lifelong love of music in each of my students. It is my goal to develop in each of my students a comprehensive understanding of music that enables them to play the piano with utmost enjoyment and musicality, furthermore, help them to become well-rounded musicians who inspire others, support arts and music and appreciate beauty in the world around us.
