Kyna enjoys teaching students of all ages and levels. She especially enjoys developing a strong music foundation and love for piano in young beginners. She understands that every individual learns differently and at their own pace. As such, her main focus is to provide balanced lessons that students are able to learn from and have fun.
Kyna was born and raised in the Coachella Valley. Growing up, learning to play the piano was not only fun for Kyna but it also helped her cultivate the joy of self discipline and hard work. As a student, she actively participated in the Certificate of Merit Program by the Music Teachers Association of California (MTAC) and was awarded level 6, 8, and 10 in piano performance and music theory by MTAC. She also participated in the Southern Youth Music Festival at Cal State Long Beach 2019 where she placed first in her piano division. Kyna recently graduated in 2023 at UCSD, minoring in music. At UCSD, she performed in chamber ensemble groups, performing 16 hand pieces by Camille Saint-Saëns, Ludwig van Beethoven, and Claude Debussy. Kyna also took a variety of musical classes, such as Jazz/Blues courses, to expand outside of her classical training.
Kyna is excited to be back to her home town where she can give back the joy of learning music. She plans to take all the experiences she has gained through her music education and teach the secrets she's found incorporating a balance of learning and fun when playing the piano!
