Teaching Philosophy

As a teacher, my goal is to help and guide students to discover their own creativity and passion towards music. When I teach music, I encourage each student to sing, improvise, chant, and move so that they can feel the music with their whole body. Students learn note readings and music theory to understand the composer’s intention and the structure of music. By exploring various styles and genres of music, students gain broad experience, knowledge and appreciation. I believe, with sufficient piano skills and experience, students can use the piano as a vehicle to express themselves and be able to hold on to the joy of music for the rest of their lives as a performer and audience member.
