Bio

Teaching Philosophy
I am an established piano teacher, giving lessons for more than 20 years. My students are active in concerts and competitions. My formal training in the United States and China makes me very responsive to learners of all levels. I will customize my instruction to the needs of each individual student. It is a combination of technique foundation and fun. Students enjoy the music while forming good practice habit to advance. References available on request.

Awards and Distinctions
In the course of my musical training, I have been a top prize winner at several regional and national piano competitions in the United States. These include the Music Teachers National Association Competition, the UCA Concerto Competition and NA Symphony Young Artist Concerto Competition. My competition wins in China include the JiaoSheng competition and the Fourteen Cities Piano Competition. The newspaper Echo called my playing "most legendary".

Skills and Certifications
My musical training started at age 5 when I entered China’s Sichuan Conservatory of Music as one of ten prodigies from among thousands of applicants. I continued my music studies in the United States, completing my undergraduate degree in music under full scholarship, and was offered a scholarship at USC for a Master's Degree in piano performance. Among my influential instructors are Xiaolin Li (former head of the piano department at Sichuan Conservatory of Music), Albert Lotto (from Julliard School of Music) and Neil Rutman (Artist-in-Residence).
