I am an experienced piano, solfege, and music theory teacher of 7 years. All my students had lots of fun and confidence in my lessons. At the same time, I maintained high standards in my teaching. In my piano lessons, I help my students to build a strong music-theoretical foundation and finger/body techniques, and simultaneously, improve an ability to convey the subtle musical expressions and dynamics through their fingers based on different styles and genres of piano pieces. My piano lesson will refer to a variety of aspects of music education, such as music theory, ear training, sight-reading, improvisation, basic compositional knowledge, and piano/music culture in different historical periods, countries and contexts. 

I have been told by so many parents that my lessons are enlightening. Their kids became self-motivated to play the piano at home. One of the kids even got upset when he was not allowed to practice by his mother owing to the improper time. The mother of one of my British students evaluated me as “the best and most patient piano teacher she had met.

About Qihui (Genni) L.

Hi, I am a piano and ear training teacher with 7 years of teaching experience. I earned a Master's degree in ethnomusicology from the SOAS, University of London in 2017, and a Bachelor's degree in musicology from the Central Conservatory of Music (CCOM, 中央音乐学院) in 2015, the top one music university in China. After graduation, I have taught 30+ piano students, 20+ solfege students of various ages and levels as a full-time piano teacher since 2017. I was also a certified teacher of Elementary Knowledge of Music(contents including sight-singing, ear-training, music theory, and basic music culture), one of the most authoritative music grade exams in China. Ninety percent of students who have been instructed by me have passed this exam.

I started to learn the piano at 7 years old and followed top teachers in piano performance and musicology in both China and the UK. I have rich knowledge of music owing to my educational background since young. I was comprehensively and professionally trained in music, such as piano performance, music analysis in both western music and Chinese music, high-level sight-singing and ear training, music composition theories (harmony, musical form, polyphony, and orchestration), western and Chinese music history, music criticism and music aesthetics. In teaching, I have benefited from the knowledge acquired and I am good at teaching students: to analyze musical structures; to use different emotions and techniques to play based on different historical and cultural backgrounds possessed by music works; to deal with all detailed contents in songs, such as tones, symbols, phrases, melodies, rhythms, harmony, voices.

I firmly believe that all kids have the potential to enjoy playing the piano. All ages and levels are welcome. Let me help you to become a better musician!
