Many people have heard the term sensei in the context of martial arts. Your Karate teacher is your sensei. But if we dissect the Japanese kanji (the symbols), we have sen which means ahead or before, and then sei which is life. So sensei is one who has lived before, who is ahead of you in the journey of life. But a deeper connotation would be:
One who has experience, who has been through it already

Meet Clinton, Piano Sensei
Having lived in Japan as a child, I feel a strong connection to Japanese people, culture, language, and food! Combine this with my musical upbringing, training, and expertise, and you end up with Piano Sensei!
I’ve been teaching piano for the last 20 years, and I’ve been playing for over 30 years! This isn’t a hobby or something I do on the side, this is my career, my profession, and my passion. My comprehensive background helps me to be effective at helping a variety of people learn music through the piano.
I have a Master’s degree in piano as well as several certifications, I regularly attend and present workshops at local, state, and national music teachers conferences, I’m a judge for various festivals, exams, and contests, and I’m on numerous committees to help shape the future of music education.
All of that is because I love teaching! But students don’t care about my credentials, they just enjoy lessons because I balance the hard work and discipline with light-heartedness, fun, and making music!
