Teaches Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Teaching since 2016
- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My teaching approach is as follows:
If the student is new, I will need to know if he or she has any musical knowledge.
If the particular student is a total beginner, I will definitely start from scratch and I will provide my own teaching materials for the learning process. Parents are welcomed to sit in the lessons and observe my teaching.
If the student is in intermediate level, I will first listen to the student's playing briefly to get the idea of the level of piano playing, and the student's previous learning experiences with their previous teachers. After that, I will have discussions with the parents regarding my further approach of teaching.
