"Dr. Nyaho is Amazing!"
5/5 stars

Review of PRIVATE PIANO LESSONS, September 21, 2009
Dr. Nyaho is one of the best music teachers I have come across. I found Dr. Nyaho when my daughter was 10, and was losing interest in piano learning after five years of lessons. After much effort interviewing piano teachers in the Seattle area, we found him in our neighborhood. Not only did Dr. Nyaho revived my daughter's love and interest in music again, he also brought her to a higer level of music appreciation He connects with her on a personal level and conveys his insight and understanding of various peices. He teaches in a way that catches a child's and a teenager's attention. Other teachers would only say, "strike the keys, forte, forte!" Dr. Nyaho would say, "Your fingers need to act as a can opener!" Because Dr. Nyaho is such an extraordinary performer, he can give feedback on little things to help students to improve their techniques. He will say, "tuck your thumb under, raise your elbow." Once Dr. Nyaho taught my daughter a comtemporary piece which was composed by his friend. When my daughter mastered the peice, Dr. Nyaho phoned his friend and had my daughter perform for the composer over the phone. My daughter received feedback from the composer and talked with her on the phone about the piece of music. Dr. Nyaho goes the extra mile to teach his students. I am always impressed when meeting his other students and listening to their performance in his studio. I am a parent who is very involved in my child's learning. Dr. Nyaho always answers my questions and helps me to assist my child's learning. It is really a true partnership with Dr. Nyaho. If you are looking for a piano teacher for your child, I highly recommend Dr. Nyaho.

Pros: Helpful, Engaging, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Fun, Good communicator

"An Amazing Teacher for Any Student"
5/5 stars

Review of PRIVATE PIANO LESSONS, September 19, 2009
Dr. Nyaho was one of the most incredible piano teachers I have ever had. He has shaped and will continue to shape who I become as an artist and person. Among his many pros that I have checked bellow, I would also like to say that very few teachers have the capacity to work on a completely individual basis with each student, using new techniques and new approaches that are specific to that particular person. Nyaho always found a way to relate to each of his students in a truly personal, yet professional, manner.

Pros: Helpful, Engaging, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Funny, Fun, Good communicator

Review of PRIVATE PIANO LESSONS, September 18, 2009
Nyaho awakened a love for music in me that made me want to switch my career aspirations from physics to piano! He is kind, patient, and loves to teach. Plus he is effective. He has so much to offer in terms of both technique and interpretation. Nyaho is one of the reasons that music is such an important part of all cultures.

Pros: Helpful, Engaging, Encouraging, Smart, Patient, Funny, Fun, Good communicator

"Insightful and inspirational piano lessons"
5/5 stars

Review of PRIVATE PIANO LESSONS, September 14, 2009
Nyaho is a wonderful musician, pianist, teacher, and person. He communcates effectively in lessons, very quicky getting to the essence of what is needed, both technically and musically, to understand the composer's intentions, and to achieve a particular musical effect. I have made much progress under his tutelage, gaining insights that I never could have discovered on my own. Belonging to that uncommon species of pianists who are both gifted performers and fine teachers. Nyaho brings his real-world experience of performance to the lesson, very effectively helping the student make tremendous advances as a pianist and musician. Contributing to his success as a teacher is his patient and understanding approach, which works well with many different ages and abilities. Studying with someone who possesses so many positive qualities as a teacher and person has been a real joy. I very highly recommend him to you.
