The deep satisfaction Joanna feels when singing has motivated her to seek continuous improvement throughout both her educational and professional career. Originally from Taiwan, Joanna received her Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from NYU. After graduating from NYU, she had worked as a full-time music teacher at a public middle school for 5 years. In 2020, Joanna was accepted by NYU Vocal Pedagogy Program, studying an advanced certificate. She is currently serving as an Adjunct Voice Faculty at NYU Steinhardt School.
Joanna has been teaching private voice and piano lessons for more than ten years. She is highly experienced working with young kids and teenagers from age 5 to 18. In her current teaching position at NYU, she mainly works with college students/adults. She also has many years of experience teaching group lessons, such as music theory, music history, basic musicianship, and chorus ensemble. Her students are always motivated to learn music and have great success in major music competitions, auditions, and music school applications. In addition to her teaching experience, Joanna has substantial performing experience as a musical theatre, classical, and contemporary commercial music singer. In 2013, she played the lead role, Hubba in an Off-Off-Broadway show, Gayuranus produced by the Alien Theater Company. In the spring of 2014, Joanna was honored by the Association of Vocal Artists of R. O. C. (Taiwan) as a New Star and had her debut at the National Taiwan Recital Hall. In September 2015, she was a semi-finalist in an international opera competition,15th Competizione dell`Opera in Linz, Austria. Joanna also explored various experimental voice and body techniques when performing with NeoSonance and Dr. Fancy, the former a contemporary music ensemble and the latter an electronic music band. Being a vocal performer and educator, Joanna feels extremely blessed and is excited to pass her knowledge to the young musicians.
Joanna implements dynamic instructions, including ear training, sight-reading/singing, music theory analyzing, and improvising in her lessons. Her pedagogical teaching skills, such as positive reinforcement, instruction verbalization and visualization, abstract-to-concrete conceptualization enhance her students' learning efficiency. She specializes in teaching multiple music genres, including classical/opera, musical theatre, contemporary commercial music (jazz, Pop & Rock). She believes cross-genre training strengthens students' abilities and also teaches them how to appreciate different music styles and cultures.
"Music brings joy and happiness to our lives." Joanna's goal is to motivate students to practice consistently and assist them to develop interests in music learning. She personalizes lesson plans in order to correspond to students' individual needs and learning pace. She values every single achievement that her students make. These accomplishments fuel students' desire to progress and make them eager to learn more. Joanna encourages her student to challenge themselves and make mistakes in her lessons. She cares about her students and always makes sure they feel welcome and safe in her class.
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
