Hello, I am a piano teacher and performer. Following my passion for music, I have studied and performed in China, Spain, the US, and Canada. I teach students of all ages and all levels using different materials and methods depending on the individual situation and learning goals. Many of my students have won awards in music festivals and earned First Class Honors with Distinction (90-100) on their Royal Conservatory of Music examinations. “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. ” I love to inspire my students to apply the knowledge and skills that they've learned from piano lessons to other aspects of life. I truly believe that learning music can be life-changing and everyone has talents in different ways. I strive to bring the best out of each student. If you are interested in piano, theory/harmony, and music history lessons, or if you need to find a collaborative pianist, please leave a message or contact me via email at [email protected]. Thank you!
