I started playing piano since I was in age 4. I graduated from Soochow University in Taiwan with my bachelor degree and Peabody Conservatory with a master degree and Graduate Performance Diploma. During the past two years, I got full assistantship in Accompanying at Peabody. I was grateful for having chances to perform recitals (solo & chamber) in many different halls both in Taiwan and USA. As a pianist, sharing the beauty of music is one of the most precious things to me. Besides piano, I play cello and organ. Also I had experiences playing cello in several orchestras in Taiwan. Making music is always wonderful!
I started teaching since I was a college student, which's seven years ago. From that time, I have been consistently teaching students until now. The students I've taught were in different age and level. Due to the differences between students, I change my teaching methods a lot. The youngest kid I taught was in age four. I set some fun exercises to let her be interested in learning rhythm and notes in a natural way. The most advanced student I taught is a graduate student in music school, who is a cellist and has been playing piano for several years. Since she has rich knowledge in music, I focused in her technical playing and more discussion of musical interpretation.
I usually use Alfred Basic Piano Library Book 1 for beginning young students and Alfred's All-In-One Course for beginning adults. I will combine piano playing and music theory in my teaching. During the lessons, I start with scales, technical exercise, and then solo repertoire. For weekly assignment, I might give my students 1-2 solo repertoire, scales, and technical exercise depends on there level. Also, I often adjust my teaching methods to students' needs. For example, I would let them pick their repertoire and helped them to make it!
I am a motivated and adaptable instructor, with patience to students. Since I had been playing piano accompanying at Peabody Preparatory for three years, I had observed multiple teaching styles with different instructors ( includes private lessons and group classes). The two most important things I found out is to help students explore their love in music and let them enjoy when they are playing their instruments. Also, setting goals and help them achieve their goals is an efficient way for learning piano.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
