Here at Pin's Piano Studio, we pride ourselves in our flexibility to accommodate the needs of individual students. We like to refer to ourselves as a small family, where students and parents are familiar with each other. This small but warm community enables us to create events and activities tailored to accommodate the needs of specific students.
With over 11 years of teaching experience, Kru Pin has taught piano to a generous number of pupils, young and adult, both in London and in Bangkok. Over the course of the years, she has adapted and rethought her teaching approach. At the same time, she enjoys learning about the individual uniqueness of her students as well.
Kru Pin is a teacher with excellent skills in teaching. She teaches my daughter advanced techniques used in piano playing. She is kind and very patient. My daughter has been studying piano with her for a while now. It is very clear to me that she enjoys her lessons here very much; she always wants to come for a lesson. She has also improved significantly.
A noticeable difference in my son is that he has better concentration and more patience. He tries harder to practice pieces that are more difficult and clearly has a higher self-esteem.
Kru Pin is interested and cares about every student. Her teaching is tailored towards each child, with different pace, and learning methods best suited to the students' age, concentration, mental readiness, ability to understand, and their control of the body or even the students' mood on that particular day.
I never thought my daughter would be able to play the piano this well. She is a late starter and Kru Pin made the "impossible" happen.
I enjoyed the lessons very much because Kru Pin is very kind. She made the lessons unstressful for me. Knowing that she is a very good pianist, I feel extremely confident following her advice. She is great in communicating the knowledge in a way that is easy to understand, and this made my learning very efficient.
During the time he studied with Kru Pin, we found out that she was a science graduate who is also a pianist. From that moment on, my son followed his first teacher's footsteps - that is excelling in academic studies while taking pleasure in music making.
My son is now 13 years old and still enjoys the piano and academic studies like intended. These things would not at all have happened if he did not study with Kru Pin, his first piano teacher.
As an adult learner with zero music experience, Pin made me feel very comfortable and gave me plenty of motivation. Lessons have been very pleasant and I always left the sessions having learned something new. From the very first day I could see my technique improving and she certainly made my introduction to the world of music a lot smoother. I would highly recommend Pin for anyone that is looking to start from scratch or improve his/her skills as she is not only a truly passionate pianist but also a skilled teacher.
Pin is a lovely music teacher. She had taught my two boys the piano for more than two years. I would describe her as a very reliable and highly professional person. By preparing creative activiies, she always makes the lessons interesting and exciting. I am extremely grateful and happy to see my children passing their exams with flying colours.
Pin started teaching Nora just before Nora turned 4 years old. We were not very sure about starting her so young, but our worries were diminished. Pin has been great with Nora, she has tapped into a way of teaching Nora piano without Nora noticing she is learning.
She uses any and everything in the room/house, drawings, pictures, songs, tapping, singing alongside the piano to make learning fun and engaging for Nora. The result of this is a happy little girl that looks forward to Pin’s lessons each week and who also enjoys playing the piano.
