About me

I started studying piano when I was six years old. I took private lessons until I finished high school and completed the Grade 10 RCM Exam. After high school, I studied at University of British Columbia and hold a Bachelor of Science degree major in Statistic and minor in Psychology. Due to the demand of school, I have stopped taking lessons, but I always enjoy playing for pleasure. In UBC, I worked part-time at the daycare centre and discover the joy of working with young children. Upon completing my degree, I studied at Douglas College and obtained the Early Childhood Education certificate. In 2005, I discover the Music for Young Children program, and I thought it is the best way to combine the two passions of mine – music and working with young children and I have been teaching this program ever since.

I have been teaching the Music for Young Children program for four years. I have completed the Grade 10 RCM exam and played piano for over 20 years. I love working with children and hold an Early Children Education certificate. I am glad to share my love of music to young children in a fun and nurturing environment.

Specialties

Music for Young Children is a beginner's program for children ages 4 to 8. No prior musical knowledge is needed and my goal is to encourage children to enjoy and love making music.

For students who have completed the Music for Young Children program, they often continue their musical journey by following the RCM curriculum. I teach private lesson using the RCM curriculum and prepare students for examinations and festival. Private lessons are usually 30-45 minutes, depending on the level. I teach up to RCM Grade 8.
