Overview:

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I graduated from Michigan State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Performance. Performing has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play at the Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as performing in The Juilliard School, The Westminster College, Wharton Center for Performing Arts in Michigan, Steinway Hall in NYC. I am proud of my old students who became professional musicians , music teachers, other professional with deep connections with piano, even moms who teach piano to their own kids.

EXPERIENCE

My teaching experience dates back to my teenager years, as I began teaching private lessons 30 years ago, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio. My students have been prizewinners in many competitions, they have been distinctively passed many piano examinations with high marks. For the last 10 years, I started to focus on teaching music theory, from intermediate level to AP Music Theory, I especially enjoy teaching high schoolers who wish to learn music theory seriously. My past students who took AP music and had gotten 5s are numerous. My piano students are encouraged to enter competitions and recitals, so they can feel good about their accomplishments and stay motivated to learn. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages!

METHODS USED

For beginning students who are children, I typically start with many different kinds of fundamental methods depending upon the maturity of the students. I would combine listening and playing, along with basic music theory for my teaching. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce different materials according to the progress of the student. The student will continue to learn and be challenged. The student gradually will get up to higher levels when new materials are introduced. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level. The love of piano learning will be lifelong.

LESSON STYLE
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. Teaching materials are carefully considered by me according to the progress of the students. Piano examinations and competitions are essential to help fuel students desire to progress and make students eager to learn more. I would instruct students to be responsible for their own lessons with good preparations and good attitudes.
