About Wanlu

My name is Wanlu! I hold a Bachelor of Music degree from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University and a Master of Music degree from Cleveland State University. I started piano at the age of five, and began to realize how music can influence a person, especially children's world view. Going to piano lessons was one of my favorite things to do after school because it made me happy in a different way. Piano has helped me to learn more about some of the most talented musicians in history and some of the most extraordinary music I have ever heard. By age 14, I reached level 10 of the CMA (Chinese Musician's Association) which is the highest level for non-music school students. Additionally, I've won several awards including Best Piano Performance Award of Halen Cup Professional Group.
Learning piano has always helped me stay curious about other instruments. In 2008, I picked up percussion. At first marimba grabbed my attention because it looks exactly like the piano, except for the material and size. I worked hard on marimba and was rewarded by being accepted into the Peabody Institute (with scholarship) in 2010 and had the privilege to study with one of the world's most renowned percussionists, Robert van Sice. In that same year, I was also accepted into NYU, Kansas University, and Mannes School of Music as the only candidate they accepted that year in the percussion department. In college, I didn't just stop growing on piano, I still practiced vigorously and took piano lessons as a minor. In 2014, I pursued my Master's Degree with the Cleveland Orchestra's Percussion/Timpani Principle, Mr. Tom Freer. Both of my teachers from Peabody and CSU instructed me on how to be a great teacher.
I began teaching piano in my senior year of high school. I started teaching a few beginning piano students, but over time, I built stronger teaching skills which allow me to quickly adapt to the student's pace and help them improve in a healthy and effective way that works for them. I love seeing people find joy through music. I like seeing their eyes light up when they can do make music on their own. I enjoy seeing their smile after they give a great performance. I want to help people to achieve to a different level of happiness and growth, which they can find through music.

I am always accepting new students and have a flexible schedule that works around your availability!
