A Chinese native. Ali began studying violin at age 4 with her uncle, well-known teacher Dayu Su. She majored in violin performance as a student of Xiaowei Chen at the prestigious Renmin University in Beijing, graduating at the top of her class. She then completed a Masters Degree with Bayla Keyes at Boston University (where she won the Bach Prize) and completed Suzuki Training at the Hartt School of Music at Hartford University, CT.
After apprenticing with her uncle, Ali went on to teach at elementary and middle schools in Beijing, where several of her students won first prizes in violin competitions. She is group violin teacher for the Chelsea Public Schools, and also teaches private lessons at the Ip Piano School in Boston
As a performer, Ali has played with the orchestras of the National Ballet of China and the National Grand Theater on Beijing; and in the US with the Cleveland Orchestra at the Blossom International Festival.
Students ages: 5-13.
During these two years I use Suzuki methods, at the same time I'm buiding my own teaching theory.
Teaching my students to play the violin in a professional way, everyone had a lot of fun during the class.Several students won the prize in Golden Beijing violin competition.
Ali is great! Patient, knowledgeable and flexible
Very patient. Provided great tips on technique improvement.
Ali is very knowledgeable! Patient and kind. But also persistent!
Ali is a pleasant teacher and Allison has a great time with her for the first class.
Ali is a very nice teacher with great patience. She has a big and sweet smile. My daughter loves her and wanna take another lesson from her!
It has been only 3 classes with Ali. My daughter is motivated to practice every day which itself is a wonderful thing.
Ali is personable, patient, and an excellent teacher to my daughter.
Ali is lovely and seems to have developed a good relationship with my young son.
Ali is very good at getting young students' attention. My son became Ali's student two months ago. He liked her and was able to follow her lecture. Ali is also very kind and funny. We love her.
I found Ali through Thumbtack where I searched a violin teacher for my 4yrs old daughter. After two lessons, I made a decision to learn together with my daughter. Ali is very friendly and nice and professional. I share the one hour lesson with my daughter with no extra fee charged. Time flexible too! I have been learned for two months, improved very fast after her guide. Recommended!+ Read More
My daughter and Ali already created a good chemistry on their first lesson (which most of the time took awhile to instill). I couldn't wish for more.
Ali is a very talented violin player. When I first started lessons with her, I was a beginner. The violin sounded squeaky and miserable. I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong. Ali simply modified my hand angle, raised my elbow slightly, and made me stand up straighter. She said 'Try now', and the sound was beautiful - a huge difference! We both couldn't stop laughing. She really does know what she is doing and can teach really well. Not to mention, she is a really nice person. She also is flexible and will go along with my schedule. Thanks for everything Ali!+ Read More
Very kind and gentle and creative with my 5-yo.
