Teaching since:

I am a professional pianist, and sound engineer. I graduated from University of California, San Diego with a Bachelors of Music, emphasis on music performance, and music technology.

I have been professionally playing piano over 20 years as a soloist in a rich western music history background, and also play in ensembles, such as jazz band. I focus on classical music in most of my life. I have held several solo recitals in these years in Conrad Prebys Music Center.

I start teaching piano since I was a college student. I've be teaching over 50 students in the past few years. My students are all from different ages and experience levels, from beginner to advanced. I can teach in bilingual English-Chinese. Students can learn not only playing songs, but also a strong knowledge of music theory, sight reading, and ear training in my lesson.

I am an easy-going person, and I love to communicate and teach kids as a music mentor. Also, for my advanced students, I like to focus on more details such as voice leading, phrase build, and breath. And I will give my students more space to create their own music style.

Enjoy is the most important thing of learning music. Please join me and we will have a wonderful adventure in the music world together.

My daughter takes piano lessons from Iris and we love her. Iris is professional in every sense. Her in-home piano studio is very lovely. The curriculum seems engaging and fun. If I had someone like Iris as my piano teacher I probably would have stuck with it instead of quitting. I would highly recommend Iris.
