RCM Certified
As a senior piano teacher, I have been teaching children playing the piano in Toronto since 2005 and became a piano teacher certified as an advanced specialist by Royal Conservatory of Music in 2015. Sever hundreds of my students have successfully passed RCM Level 4 through Level 10 exams with a good score. My goal not just helps students prepare and successfully pass RCM exams, but teach children how the great pianists in the 20th century such as Horowitz play the piano in a comfortable and easy way. I like singing melodies of piano music for my students and also encourage all my students singing while playing the piano. Chopin used to ask his piano students singing while playing the piano as well. Horowitz emphasized to make the piano as a singing instrument. Piano music is profoundly related to human singing. I help all my students to enjoy to play the piano and enjoy the music. Piano music is related to both art and science. I studied music in the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China and the University of Helsinki in Finland. I have a Master of Arts degree from the University of Helsinki. I taught children playing the piano in China, Finland, and the United States before I immigrated to Canada in 2005. The following video are examples of my student performance
