About me

My name is Naho and I am an experienced music teacher who is studied in RCS. I have been teaching for the past 6 years in a music school in Dublin before moving to Glasgow. I started as a pianist at the age of 4 and progressed to singing soon after. Since then I have always been playing piano and singing. I am very interested in developing students musical skill having attended summer courses for teaching classical voice in the likes of Guildhall and also participated in a seminars for piano teaching in DIT. My goal for teaching is for you to enjoy playing music rather than ticking boxes! :)

Teaching experience

I have taught piano, singing and music theory to a wide range of ages. Many of my students have sat exams (Grade 1- Grade 8) and they have always received either Distinction or Merit. I also love teaching students who play piano just for fun. I have a lot of mature students who come in after work or after their game of croquet to relax and learn some new things. 

Teaching approach

Now I'm offering online lesson as well as in person lessons. Online lessons will be delivered via fully equipped Zoom with a clear view of piano and use of fingers for piano! There is also a family discount when siblings or even parents take lessons! In my lessons, my focus is on expanding pupils' love of music and improving their ability as a musician. I always create my own curriculum for each individual student to ensure it will suit their pace and needs. I will always make sure that there is right atmosphere for learning as it is so important. Especially for young beginners, we would be starting with some fun exercises to keep the enthusiasm going!


'Naho was prompt and helpful in her communication, and my 14 year old daughter is now really enjoying regular lessons. Naho is very responsive to the pupil's particular interests and aims, and focuses clearly on how best to work with the person.
She is encouraging, kind and enthusiastic, and very quickly picks up where things can improve.
Overall, I think her teaching style is engaging and effective.
Really pleased to have found Naho!'

'Naho is a fantastic teacher! Zoom lessons with her work perfectly as well! She's very professional and enthusiastic. She's nice, funny, encouraging and clearly knows what she's talking about.' 

'Naho is very kind, patient and professional with my 3 children. After changing to Naho from another teacher, my eldest tells me she is learning lots of new information which has enhanced her enthusiasm for piano. Naho has tailored the lessons to the different needs of my 3 children and we are all very happy with how things are going.'
