Thank you for visiting the website! My name is Keiko Matsumoto. I began
the Vine International Piano School in Fujigaoka Aoba-ku, Yokohama in 2007.
My school is a unique place where you can learn the piano in either English
or Japanese, or both.
I am an enthusiastic and experienced piano teacher who speaks both English and Japanese. I have a unique background as a piano teacher. I started learning the piano at age 9, but I went to a college to study international business and obtained my Masters in Business Administration (MBA) while studying in the U.S. I started teaching the piano at home unexpectedly – yes, totally unexpectedly - and I have now been teaching piano in English and Japanese for 8 years. I discovered I had a gift of teaching, and really enjoy it. I believe the most important factor in learning the piano is to enjoy playing, and am happy to help my students enjoy the beauty of playing the piano, which can greatly enrich their lives.
At the Vine International Piano School, students of all abilities, from beginner to advanced levels, are accepted. Students of all nationalities are accepted, too, as long as they can understand either English or Japanese. All lessons are designed to meet an individual’s needs and interests, and you can learn not only classical music but also pop and rock music.
I also welcome the handicapped and those who are suffering from depression or other mental illnesses. Scientific studies show that playing the piano stimulates our minds and is good for our health.
Private, pair (2 people) and semi-group lessons are available. Please feel free to contact me for a trial lesson to see how much fun it is to play the piano!
I am hoping that through learning in this school you will be blessed and your lives will be enriched.
You are precious and honored in my sight (Isaiah 43:4)
