About me

My goal is to help students learn piano technique and enjoy playing music while developing their musicality and making music an important part of their lives. I guide students to reach their goals, such as to study at a university as music major student, to excel in performance and earn certificates. Some of my students became professional musicians. They often win awards in local and school music festivals. Many of my students earned their achievement certificates with honor. They also enjoy sharing their talent online at Youtube.
Exploring a wide range of repertoire, I use both Western masterworks and world music pieces. With 30+ years teaching experience, I also teach music theory and composition at levels from beginner to advanced.
