Piano Teacher

I am 25 years old computer engineering graduate. I've been playing piano since I was 8. I've graduated from a conservatory in Turkey, then I continued private lessons with my instructor from there. 5 years ago I stopped taking private lessons and instead I practiced on my own. I have started teaching kids piano 4 years ago when I was a college student and I've had 15-20 students during this time.
