Mihee K. Heil's teaching philosophy is to provide well-rounded music education through carefully individualized piano lessons to instill one's love of music for a lifetime enjoyment.  To provide well-rounded music education, she teaches piano performance, music theory, and music history.  She strongly believes a proper development of piano technique is a crucial matter for piano student's pianistic growth and advancement; therefore, she focuses in teaching piano technique from the beginning.  To foster student's understanding on the nature, the structure, the composers, and the origin of music, she includes music theory and music history in her teaching curriculum.  Her passion and professionalism in teaching piano drive her students to reach their full potential and become a high achiever.  Mihee continuously studies and attends workshops and professional programs to enrich her professional growth and teaching skills.
