As a teacher, my main goal is to inspire and motivate students to do their best. I am able to instill a sense of music appreciation while at the same time teach students about the technical aspects of music and the violin.
I am keenly aware of the importance of communication, conveying information and skills in a supportive, respectful and diverse manner.
I encourage my students to balance foundational techniques, accuracy and musicality in everyday playing. By utilizing these effective methods, I am able to reach out to each student, introduce new concepts and foster a fun learning environment.
Learning music helps students find their self-expression through different music genres they choose to play. It develops their musicianship, self-confidence and overall appreciation. As a result, it helps students blossom into well-rounded individuals.
I am passionate about teaching students of all ages, with a variety of abilities and goals. Through my passion of teaching, I bring a fun yet inspiring atmosphere into the lesson.
Education and Experience:
I graduated with a Bachelor of Music (Performance) from The Vancouver Academy of Music.
I have taught for seventeen years and currently teach at several music schools, and maintain a private studio.
During my seventeen years of teaching, I have taken advantage of many opportunities to develop my teaching abilities. I have been fortunate enough to educate a diverse group of students. I have taught children with disabilities from attention deficit disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, and autism.
It is so rewarding to witness student’s development of concentration, creativity, and self confidence.
