Instructors

Kiarah Seu began playing the piano at the age of 3 in Des Moines, Iowa, and at the age of 9, began performing annually in Guild, Festival, competing and placing first in multiple IMTA District and State competitions, thereby receiving invitations to perform at state piano conventions. The following year, a special invitation was extended to attend Wartburg College's music program, providing the opportunity to work with many renowned professors in studying music history, theory, piano literature, dictation, performance, and more, along with continuing to attend for 2 years thereafter. 

 

She then auditioned and was accepted into a music school in St Petersburg, FL to continue in classical, baroque, romantic, and modern/contemporary training.  The experience continued to grow through having a share in performances by accompanying for productions, vocalists, and instrumentalists, performing for weddings, restaurants, festivals, malls, as well as premiering as a guest artist for concert productions in St. Petersburg, FL, and receiving a scholarship to attend programs at Berklee's School of Music.

With a recent return to Florida, she has now opened a private piano studio in Pinellas Park, FL and continues to share with others the experience in learning this beautiful instrument. 

Malakai Seu grew up in a musical household, enjoying both formal and self-taught instruction.  He enjoys playing a variety of genres, such as: Pop, Island-style, Classical, and Modern/Contemporary, along with strumming-style and finger-style forms.  He spends his average day playing a mix of the ukulele, guitar and piano.  

In working with students, he allows music from all genres to be incorporated in the lessons, so that the student may enjoy learning the songs that they know and love.  Malakai strives to adapt to each ones' personal needs and goals, and gives particular attention in assisting in learning how to read TABS.  He likes to keep the lessons fun and progressive, helping the students to not only learn how to play a new instrument, but to be able to enjoy the experience.
