About me

I have almost 10 years of teaching experience in all different ages. I have worked in New York University as an Adjunct Instructor in Piano Studies for a few years prior to my relocation to California. I am now serving in Orchepia School of Music, Irvine, as a Piano Instructor. On top of that, I have also been actively teaching and performing throughout the years.

I am passionate, cheerful and devoted. My teaching philosophy is to teach my students proper technique and great musicality in order to enhance their knowledge and enjoyment in playing the piano.

Lesson details

I believe that in order to control the piano, one would need to learn how to control his/her body first. My lessons focus on a lot of natural movements of our bodies and how we corporate that in piano playing.
I also emphasize in music theory and music history, to make sure students understand what they are playing.
I make piano lesson a fun process, not a painful one. I offer solid practice recommendations instead of mere repetition.
I also emphasize on sight-reading and sight-singing training.
