About Crescendo Grande Piano Studio in Palo Alto, CA

Piano is not just an instrument with a beautiful sound and Crescendo Grande is also not just like any other piano studio. There are several aspects to teaching piano which piano teachers must focus on very closely:

 academic aspect (the theoretical knowledge)

musical aspect (the creativity)

 physical aspect (posture and technique)

 mental aspect (the balance in the body through improving fine motor skills, dexterity and coordination 

In my studio, I stimulate and activate the student’s inner skills and help their talent emerge. I emphasize on exercises that would help student improve the above 4 elements. Your child will walk out of my studio with new musical knowledge, stronger body and a more creative mind.
