Yuta Sugano, Piano Instructor

Yuta Sugano’s teaching experience ranges from young beginners to college piano majors and adult piano enthusiasts. He believes the piano is one of life’s joys that enrich all of us, and loves sharing it with others. He incorporates healthy technique, music history and theory into each lesson. Lessons are offered in English or Japanese. Each student is challenged to make progress at their own pace, in a positive, encouraging environment. The importance of practice efficiency is addressed through weekly practice monitoring.


Yuta Sugano offers weekly private lessons for piano students of all ages and experience. Students are encouraged to record the lessons to aid with efficiency in daily practice. Due to frequent performances and travels, Yuta’s availability may vary from month to month. Missed lessons initiated by the instructor or due to family emergency or illness will be made up.
