About Me

Erin Su

My name is Erin, and I am a high school student and pianist from the Bay Area. I've been playing piano for the past thirteen years and teaching for the past three. I've also worked as an accompanist for choirs, auditions, and vocal recordings. I have learned so much over my long journey with music, and now I would love nothing more than to share my experience and knowledge with you.

When I began teaching piano in 2017, I realized how much I loved helping my students find a love for music. Encouraging a child to discover the joy of playing the piano has grown to be my greatest passion, even more than performing. During the Coronavirus crisis of Spring 2020, I couldn't meet with my students in person anymore; I knew that most of these kids were incredibly bored at home, so I wanted to offer them a chance to keep learning about music. I started writing the blogs on this website as a collection of everything I have learned over my years as a piano student and teacher, and what I continue to learn everyday.
