Teaching Approach and Lesson Topics:

– I focus both on the enjoyment and fun aspect of learning piano as well as technical competencies such as proper techniques, note reading, rhythm training, ear training and sight reading.

– Initially, I was trained to teach by Edward Parker, the first teacher of three Canadian Concert pianists and also by passing the piano teaching exams (in addition to piano performing exams) at the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM). Now, I modify my teaching method for the students’ natural aptitude, personality and reason for learning the piano.

– A lot of modern materials are included such as Disney music, Youtube videos of pop song or classical songs, visual aids, music trips (to concerts, historical sites)
