'I hope to share my musical experiences with you all, and hope you will love music like I do too!'

Teaching Philosophy

Through these years, I have been fortunate enough to enjoy various kinds of music, especially classical, romantic, and pop -- and this exposure has led me to be increasingly interested to further explore the musical world, especially in classical piano. I hope to share my musical experiences with you all, and hope you will love music like I do too! Each student has their own learning purpose, and I am here to support you learn and achieve your goals! No matter you are just starting or picking up an old hobby, I can help you enjoy playing an instrument and enjoy the music you make! Lessons can include technique, musical understanding, and exercises to help you remember what you've learned in class. Effort is also required on your part to do your fair share of practicing, but I am here to support you in your musical journey!

Teaching & Skills

My dad is a recording engineer who works at the record label for celebrity singers. Therefore since I was young I am exposed to music of different genres, and outside of piano, I can in which your musical life by exploring different kinds of music as well! Recently I have also employed Chopin's methods, inspired by the International Chopin Competition 2021. Chopin is a piano master who was inspired by Beethoven, the great composer of the Classical period. So, be prepared to learn famous pieces by the greats of Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart, and more!
