My name is Kim Oien (pronounced “Oi-yen”). I teach piano, guitar and ukulele to kids as young as 4 through adults of any age from my beautiful, conveniently located studio in Wauwatosa, WI (West of Milwaukee). As you may guess from my studio name, I also am a big lover of cats!
I am passionate about teaching and sharing my love of playing music and have been teaching for more than 3 decades. I've been told I'm extremely patient and understanding while encouraging students on their journey of learning to play their instrument and love music. Learning music is fun and rewarding, and it also helps students learn many life skills. Contact me today and sign up for a meet and greet.
I am a certified teacher of The Musicolor Method for preschoolers. It is an innovative and proven method for teaching the youngest students using color first, then slowly easing them into traditional reading as they progress and learn to read.
“Kim shares her love of music in a creative studio environment that encourages students of any aptitude to grow, learn and enjoy. Her approach is rooted in understanding and embracing each student and inspiring them in their own musical journey.– C. White, father of one of Kim's students
Lessons are usually once weekly for 30 minutes, and 45 minute lessons are also available. In that time we cover songs, technique and theory in a fun and simple way. Lessons are highly individualized to the students needs and learning style. Scheduling and tuition are by semester, roughly going along with area school calendars. The 18 week semester is $400 and payable at the first lesson, or in 4 equal monthly payments of $100 (for 30 minute lessons).
We have two recitals a year and other occasional opportunities for performances. Group classes will occur up to twice a semester instead of a private lesson. Private and group lessons are also available in the summer.
“Kim Oien has taught piano to my three daughters for ten years, and she is truly amazing! Her musical knowledge and nurturing spirit are so appreciated! Any student would be blessed to have Kim as an instructor!”– Tanya K.
