The first chance I met music was based on my parents’ view that it can build good a character for me. When the first time my mother asked which instrument I wanted to learn, I chose clarinet without hesitation, facing a dazzling array of beautiful musical instruments. From that time, I was deeply attracted by the exquisite appearance and the beautiful sound it produced. I hold my bachelor's degree from Xi'an Conservatory of music in 2016 and performance diploma from Michigan State University in 2018. In 2020, I graduated from Johns Hopkins University Peabody Institute with a Master of Music degree in clarinet performance. Performing over the world as been one of the greated experiences of my life.
I have played clarinet for 17 years and started teaching since 2012. I love playing with other musicians such as chamber music and ensemble, so that I also encourage students to play with others. My knowledge of music is extensive and I am a skilled teacher who brings concepts of music in creative ways. My student teaching supervisor and professor both commended me on my ability to pass my genuine enthusiasm for the music onto the students and audiences. Usually I hold at least 2 studio recitals per year and encourage all of my students to perform and share their favorite pieces. I am looking to bring on new students of all ages.
Each lesson, I will prepare 4 sections for my students: warm-up, review, learning new music, and questions/smart tips time. I believe fundamental techniques are super important for students to advance their music. I also pay attention to what students are interested in. The teacher should come up with a teaching method that will balance the different needs of the students. My goal is to instill a sense of music appreciation, while at the same time teaching students about the technical aspects of music.
I love my students and like to be friend with them after class. My fun outgoing personality they seem to respond to positively. At the same time, I am a very strict teacher during the lessons. My professional experience told me that even playing for fun, we also should play on the right track. So that I also require my students to play like a real musician. Standing or sitting position, breath technique, fingering, theory, music aesthetic appreciation... They are all equally significant in music performing.
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
