Fun piano lessons with an award-winning pianist
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 I would like to teach my students what I had learn. Learning pieces and other related topics - Playing pieces and songs is only a small part of learning to play an instrument. In our lessons, we would also cover proper music theory, and ear-training. I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early beginner to preparing for college audition.

Absolutely loved this class, I really enjoyed how flexible his lessons were. He was more than willing to adjust and go over theory more than playing. Definitely the highlight of week!
