Teaching since:


I love performing music, and it is my passion to teach others the same. I consider music to be a vibrant language rather than a mere set of notes. And it would be my distinct pleasure to journey through music together with you!

I had been introduced to music basically at birth. Both my parents were active performing musicians at the time as well as deeply immersed in music production. My first piano scale was taught by my father at the age of 3, and the first little tune I played with left-hand accompaniment was taught by my mother when I was 6. Growing up, having various musicians in our home was a usual sight. Surrounded by so many talents, I played piano by ear and improvised more and more. I began formal piano training at the age of 7. Since then, both piano and theory have gone hand in hand with me.

At age 14, I began to seriously study conducting and voice. Since then, this has always been part of my passion. I have had great experiences learning from great music professors from prominent cities in other countries. I have also been very fortunate to have hands-on teaching experiences at various musical festivals and seminars.

Eugene is a great help when it comes to conducting. He really makes you think about the words of the song to make a greater effect. His gestures are very smooth and flow so learning from him was great!! He helped me understand how to pull the sound out of the choir😁

With his extensive background and experience in music, Eugene was able to show me that there is more to music than just notes. He is an excellent communicator and an exceptional teacher. I say that because he breaks apart the complexity of music and teaches it peice by peice, making it easy to play difficult passages. Overall, he added an entirely new dimension to music for me.
I recommend Eugene to those looking to accelerate their piano technique or anyone interested in advancing in their piano performance. Eugene has a strong and contagious passion for music.

Eugene is not only is a wonderful pianist but has passion in it. Technical playing is one thing but when the playing comes from the heart its a different sound. Eugene has this in him. This man is a rare teacher that is hard to find. Don't miss the chance!

Had the honor of being taught by Ugene a little while back. He really knows how to connect with his students and make you feel passionate and excited about music. It's never confusing with him, he will always explain everything so that it's crystal clear and will show with amazing examples. Will recommend him to anyone 10/10
