Young multilingual (English, Cantonese, and Mandarin) piano and violin teacher who combines the formal traditional Eastern style of teaching, and the fun approach of Western style of teaching into his music lessons.

Fun lessons but also challenging
- I believes that fun lessons are easy to gain young student interest, but it often lack to give them motivation. In the lessons, I often challenge my students, let them be self-motivated and become a better musician.

Techniques
- I focus lessons on teaching proper techniques with their instruments. With my experiences in taking lessons from American, Chinese, and Russian teachers, I learnt a great spectrum of techniques and like to teach what I had learn.

Learning pieces and other related topics
- Playing pieces and songs is only a small piece of playing an instrument. In lessons, I also teaches proper music theory, and ear-training.

I haves students from age 4 to retirement age. Early beginner to preparing for college audition.

Koon is very in tune with my sons needs and encourages him while also challenging him. I like the curriculum he uses and the foundational approach. JJ is doing great and we have high hopes. Thanks Koon!

Koon is excellent! Very attentive to the needs of my son. I expect JJ to learn a lot, he’s being challenged and is growing as pianist already, just 5 lessons in. Thank you Koon!
