I received Doctor degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy at the University of Iowa, studying with Dr. Nosikova. Prior to this program, I obtained a Master of Music Degree from the Manhattan School of Music and studied at the Tianjin Conservatory of Music from which I graduated with the highest accolade in Tianjin Conservatory of Music, major in piano performance, minor in vocal. Professionally, I have given piano performances as a soloist and chamber musician throughout China and the United States in venues such as the Tianjin Conservatory of Music Concert Hall, Guangzhou Country Club, Greenfield Hall, University of Iowa Hospital Center, and Iowa Capital Piano Sundays Music Series, as well as multiple performances at the University of Iowa and Manhattan School of Music.
I have 9 years of teaching experience. I have been teaching piano lessons and theory lessons in the United States and China since 2010. While studying at the University of Iowa, I held a Teaching Assistantship in which I played with the UI Orchestral and Choral Ensemble. I additionally served as a piano teacher at Art Plaza Studio in Brooklyn, NYC where I worked with students from around the world at ages four to eighty-two. Most recently, I worked as both piano teacher and vocal teacher in Michigan. Along with multiple solo and chamber performances, I have performed in numerous master classes, including with Juilliard Professor Choong Mo Kang. I have collaborated with performers from other countries. Across my career, I have attended international institutes and entered competitions. In 2014, I was a finalist in Schlern (Italy) International Music Festival Competition.
I always ask myself “What will I teach my students?!” I have been training for 11 years in piano pedagogy, I know the American piano pedagogy has changed dramatically. At this time, I usually use Suzuki Method, Bastien Piano Basics, and Alfred Piano Method. But all depending on what levels of students I got. I will find the proper teaching methods on my individual students.
I have developed skills designing training curricula in aural skills, sight-reading, piano performance and piano pedagogy. I enjoy both challenging and being challenged by students. I am passionate about making teaching and learning intellectually engaging and enjoyable.
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
