I am a professional recorder player and piano accompanist, as well as an experienced educator in the recorder, piano, and music theory. In 2018, I graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London with a Bachelor of Music degree in recorder performance. During my music college studies, I majored in the recorder and minored in keyboard and continuo playing (harpsichord). I am enthusiastic about music of different genres; in 2015 I performed with the English pop band Cat's eyes in the Buckingham Palace, in 2016 I performed renaissance music in BBC radio 3, and I am passionate to share my love for all kinds of music with students. I am also an experienced piano accompanist where I play regularly in church services and school concert accompaniment.
I am currently in my second year of high school music teaching position in nyc, and my school teaching span across recorder solo, recorder ensemble, piano solo, to group piano teaching. I have also been teaching private recorder and piano lessons part time for four years during my college days. When meeting a new student, I would always get to know the student's personal goal for his or her music learning, whether it is to enter competitions, to perform in recitals, to participate in school concerts etc. I encourage students to set goals for one self and for me to tailor the lessons around them. I am a passionate music educator and I look forward to bringing on new students of all ages at all levels!
With my piano teaching, I am particularly experienced in working with younger or beginner students, combining solid technical works, classical repertoires, as well as students' choice of preference (pop, jazz, or even improvisation and song writing!) to make the lessons firm and fun. I typically start the lesson with scales and etudes, followed by repertoires that are a combination of the students' and my choices.
With my recorder teaching, I emphasize the importance of breathing technique, sound production, musicality, as well as a wide span of genres from the medieval to contemporary music. I typically start my recorder lesson with long notes and exercises for students of all levels, followed by repertories such as the Handel Sonatas for beginners and young students, and Van Eyck, 20th century repertoires, or the student's own choice for adult students and advanced players.
My philosophy in music learning is that a student should progress solidly step by step, therefore putting a lot of emphasis on technical works. I believe a good foundation in technique will allow a student to progress successfully and quickly in any types and levels of repertories he or she wishes to accomplish. However, besides techniques, I also emphasize the importance of self expression and musicality, and therefore value students' individual characters when performing, and aim to strengthen and improve each individual student's unique musical character.
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
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
