Calgary's Flagship Private Piano Room

This 650-square-feet luxury studio space, the best of its kind in the city, has welcomed students and professional musicians from all over Calgary and beyond Alberta to play and record. Under Han's coaching, the students here largely represent study at an upper intermediate level or higher, with emphasis on RCM 9-10 and ARCT examinations, and advanced repertoire.

Comprehensive Music Scores Library

The library includes hundreds of volumes representing over a thousand works. All standard repertoire piano works are included, as well Renaissance music, piano concertos, chamber music, orchestral and vocal scores, and select antique volumes from the 19th and early 20th Centuries.

Dedicated and Experienced Instruction

 Over the past eighteen years, Han has developed an immersive and well-rounded approach to music teaching. His students have achieved scholarships and medals and provincial festival representation. Most importantly, they consistently report a high level of learning satisfaction and enjoyment.

Advanced Performance Students

For students who are dedicated and working on higher intermediate or advanced repertoire (comparable to RCM Level 9 and higher), a wealth of opportunities open up. These may include:

 + Complimentary accompaniment for concerto or chamber repertoire

 + Regular studio classes with other advanced students

 + Complimentary music recording and videography services

 

Diploma students and students preparing for music school may receive additional performance opportunities.
