  • What is your teaching philosophy?

    My teaching philosophy would be that you get out of it, what you put into it. If you apply yourself and are willing to put in hard work, you will succeed and progress quickly.

    How long have you been teaching music? At YMP?

    I began interning at YMP the Spring of 2014 and started teaching private piano and voice lessons in 2016.

    What is your favorite thing about teaching music?

    One of my favorite things about teaching music is seeing students “light up” when they understand something new. I also really enjoy watching and experiencing how each student grows from the time I start teaching them.

    What do you expect of your students in classes/lessons?

    I expect my students to come into class and/or lesson with a positive attitude, ready to learn and also willing to have some fun at the same time.

  • About Kyleen
    Kyleen was born into a musical family. She started playing piano and violin at the age of three and the harp at age 12. She graduated from Canby High School in 2016 and is currently a student at Clackamas Community College working towards my degree in Education. Kyleen was highly involved with choir throughout all of high school, but studied piano, voice, and harp, privately. She has performed with her school choir, Tualatin High School orchestra at two different senior retirement homes. Kyleen states Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as a major positive influence on her overall music experience. She has also always been in awe of the way Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder play the piano so flawlessly. Vocally, Norah Jones and Michael Buble have been her biggest musical influences.
