Studio Philosophy

Kubota Music Studio strives to provide its students, of all ages and levels, a curriculum designed to fit each individual.


Neither technical nor musical aspects of piano playing will be neglected during a students's experience, and opportunities will be abundant.


Additionally, students will receive ear training from an early stage in order to ensure expertise in the realm of Music Theory.


Collaboration amongst beginner students and their family members or teacher is encouraged for those who would prefer to ease into the performance world before delving into solo works.

  • Lesson curriculums are designed for each individual students.

  • Students will learn and develop step by step for finger techniques, reading skills(understanding rhythms, notes, articulations, dynamics and phrasings), and fundamentals of music theory as well as bring out their musical expression, and how to use their body(how to relax your body when playing the piano), how to produce a nice and beautiful sound throughout from the beginner level to advanced level using well balanced method books and technique book + various musical repertoires using piano literature books for many different styles and different composers' works.

The Studio House
  • Kub​ota Music Studio is located in the Mount Washington/Pikesville Area of Baltimore, MD.

  • Studio house is surrounded by nature, and there is a public park and ennis court situated across the street, where students may socialize or play before or after their lessons.

  • For students with younger siblings or children, the studio house comes with some toys, English or Japanese books, and a crafts corner to keep them entertained during the lessons while they are waiting.

  • The studio house also has comfortable couches, where friends or family members who tag along may lounge.

  • Free Wi-Fi is available.

  • Kubota Music Studio is equipped with a Steinway & Sons Grand Piano. (Students can play the world class instrument from the very first lesson!)

  • Students are given many performing chances in different settings(both formal and friendly settings) and will build up their performing experience and strength.

  • I understand each student is unique and has different learning pace. My goal is to help them get their life lasting joy of playing the piano, for both physically and mentally.

Serious students can participate
  • Very beginner level students play with me or their parents or siblings to enjoy playing without too much pressure but can feel rich sound from the beginning level.
