Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have been playing piano for 13 years and I have over 3 years of teaching and tutoring experience. I am able to teach all levels of piano: beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Lessons will be catered to your needs, learning style, and aspirations. I believe ear training, theory, and sightreading are all important to the development of a musician, so these aspects will be also integrated into lessons to help develop musicianship. Finally, it's important to remember that music should always be fun! I love music and I hope to bring my passion for music to others.

Teaching since:

I graduated from Princeton University in June 2018. I majored in math with minors in piano performance and computer science, and I am now pursuing conducting as a career path. I've been playing piano for 13 years. At Princeton, I was enrolled in the Certificate Program for Piano Performance, which is reserved for the top 2-4 pianists in each year. At the end of my time at Princeton, I played a 60 minute senior recital comprising works by Prokofiev, Debussy, and Frank Bridge.

Also at Princeton, I was Music Director and President of the Princeton Pianists Ensemble, which brings together advanced pianists at Princeton to play multi-piano music. During my administrative role, I organised 20 hours of rehearsal per week for each of 5 sold-out concerts for audiences of 300-800 people.

As a conductor, I have conducted the Princeton University Glee Club and the chamber choir Contrapunctus XIV. I have also conducted the premiere of five new works and one US premiere.

I have been teaching and tutoring for over three years, in various subjects as math, physics, piano, music theory, and SAT prep, including working as a Teaching Assistant for the Princeton University math department for three years. I have taught music at all levels of experience.

I believe that a well-rounded musical education (theory, history, performance, composition) enhances one's experience of music in all areas. I absolutely love classical music and I am keen to spread this passion as much as I can.

Research Intern
Jun 2017 - Aug 2018
Caltech Computing and Mathematical Science

Studied the literature of generalized principle component analysis and non-linear dimension reduction, in particular pertaining to Isomap. Developed Parallel Transport Unfolding (PTU), a new algorithm for non-linear dimension reduction that is more robust to general manifolds than Isomap by using parallel transport to unfold geodesics and perform geodesic curvature correction. Produced a paper to be submitted for review and published.
