Kitty Cheung-EvansPiano

Kitty Cheung-Evans is an enthusiastic piano teacher with a knack for recognizing each student’s strengths and weaknesses. Because each student learns differently, she uses a flexible approach for choosing pieces that advance their technical, musical, reading, and rhythmic skills. 

Kitty has more than ten years of teaching experience, with students from four years old to adults, from beginners to advanced levels. She has been praised for her patience and dedication, ensuring that each student blossoms musically through a basic theoretical approach. 

Kitty challenges the strengths of her students to promote higher standards of learning, thinking, and a step-by-step practicing process. Her goal is to enhance every student’s enjoyment at the piano—at home, in the studio, on stage and in the ensemble. Kitty believes it is essential for students to gain the confidence to learn new pieces, form ideas and understand how to tackle any music—in addition to understanding classical repertoire. In addition to technical directions, Kitty uses daily activities, objects, symbols and emotions to describe musical terms that help younger students learn the abstract qualities of music. Kitty’s students have participated in and enjoyed piano competitions, and have been awarded honors at many levels.

Kitty holds a Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from the University of Lethbridge in Canada, and a Master’s degree in Piano Performance from the Longy School of Music, Cambridge, MA. Some of Kitty’s most influential mentors include Randall Hodgkinson and Dr. Peter Evans at the Longy School of Music. She enjoys discovering twentieth and twenty-first century compositions. Throughout her studies, Kitty has placed equal importance on solo piano and accompaniment. She continues to collaborate with other artists, including during student and professional recitals. 

In addition to CCM, Kitty teaches at Franklin School of Performing Arts and Gordon La Salle School of Music in Leominster, MA.
