Maya has been my violin and piano teacher for about 7 years. She’s very patient and fun to work with, but sometimes strict for what I work on. We have to prepare for the annual students recital she has in the spring, but i feel I’ve learned a lot from her. She’s my favorite teacher!

I am a passionate, energetic, humorous, patient cello and piano instructor. I have been teaching since 2008. Within these years, I taught the private lesson, group lesson, music theory and studio class of all ages and all levels. One of my ten years old student got the highest score of the Asian-Pacific Region in Grade two cello exam of The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music only after one year learning from me. I have abundant experiences for helping students not only learning music but also enjoying lots of fun from it. I also helped my students for preparing their solo recitals, summer festival auditions, competitions, and performing arts high school auditions. I am sure you will full in love with the sound you make after learning from me. Let me help you to accomplish your aspirations.

Meixu is an extremely kind and patient instructor. Really helped me with my phrasing and understanding what I was playing. I feel like my practice and strategy to approaching music has changed a lot in the hour I spent with her. Would definitely recommend a lesson with her.

Meixu is very attentive, patient , and her virtual lessons don’t feel “virtual” at all! She has been available and helpful in between lessons (which definitely makes me feel like she cares about my progress). With Meixu, you definitely get what you pay for ☺️

She teaches well and makes sure that you fully understand the lesson/technique. Her constructive criticisms really help and allows you to grow and improve.

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in sight reading, technique and music theory. While learning classical piano typically calls for reading sheet music, I may take non-traditional methods for classical music such as learning by ear or with chords depending on the student's needs.

As a musician, I am also a freelance artist an I have my own painting studio and gallery as well. I love to travel and teach so this is why I would love to teach online.

I believe that no matter music or art, they are all medium to nuture your own creativity and make you feel more alive.

I always encourage my students to be imaginative when it comes to interpret music. I believe one can play well have to learn how to appreciate music first.
Only with the students' own internalization of the music, the music can be alive.

To play music well means one has to understand the song from all different perspectives, not only the techniques but also the learn the musical themes that the composer intended to express.

And the most interesting part comes to the performer add his/her own touch and imagination, preference to the original piece.

I would love to share the joy of playing music with my students.
I will teach my students the lessons of techniques and expressions separately ...

Thanks to his patience and careful attention to the process of teaching, his music lessons are joyful and easy for students. Ivan is a professional with a capital!
