About Kiho

Hi! My name is Kiho and I'm originally from Japan. I have worked as a music theory tutor, Japanese tutor, music teacher for elementary school classes, and a violin teacher. I believe every individual has their own method and preference for learning, therefore I always get to know my students well first and decide what is best for his or her personality. I also talk to the students and set goals of where they wish to be after few sessions so they all have something to look forward to and study for. I am not harsh nor very strict; I focus on having a good atmosphere with the students, but I will make sure the students reaches those goals that they have set. I want my tutoring session to be fun and exciting for the students so that they'd be eager to learn about the subject.

Here are my fields of expertise:
Japanese
Music Theory (Classical, Jazz)
Music History
Ear Training
Sight Reading
Violin
Basic Piano
Elementary Math

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

I have a Bachelor's of Music Degree at Berklee College of Music. Here are the courses taken related to Ear Training.

Harmonic Ear Training 1 - Identifying of bass lines and basic pop chord progression, Solfege singing of the bass line.
Harmonic Ear Training 2 - Identifying the chord progression and the tensions of each chords in jazz arrangement
I have experience teaching all of these subjects to college students during January 2010 until December 2010. I have helped college students who were struggling with these subjects so that they could pass these courses. I also have perfect pitch, which enables me to identify pitch without using any musical references.

Violin

I have been playing violin for 19 years, and won the Hong Kong 54th Music Festival Competition with Bach's No. 3 Sonata. My experience is playing in orchestral setting. I have experience playing as a principal violinist in the first and the second section in both orchestra and string ensemble setting. I performed as a featured soloist of Boston String Players at Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
I also taught violin to 10 year old kids as part of the high school's volunteer work, but I can also teach more advanced level of players
