Overview

I am an enthusiastic and fun teacher. I acquired my bachelor's and master's degree in piano performance. I started playing piano at the age of 6. Since I was 8 years old, I have been trained systematically and professionally throughout my years in school. My solo performances and recitals were held when I was attending the University of Wyoming. I have great passion towards performing in public, but I found greater love in teaching piano. I have 10 years of teaching experiences. I believe that the piano is our best friend and keep it close to our heart and shares this love with the world when we play.

*** Lesson details ***
Strict but fun and enthusiastic, these words were said by my students after years of teaching. In Piano lessons, I assign diverse music repertories in order to assist students to have the ability to grasp the essentials of each different style of music. Learning piano skills is very important, but note-reading, theory, ear training and music history can't be neglected. I will include all these subjects consistently during the lessons to help the students build stronger and richer musicality. One or two recitals will be provided by me, all the students are encouraged to participate in the recitals.Students are also encouraged to take advanced performance opportunities, in church, school, and joint studio recitals. I must be notified at least one month in advance if the student desires to participate in the events.


Students responsibility:
-Daily practice is strongly recommended. It is important and necessary for steady progress.
-Students should have neat, clean, trimmed nails at every lesson.
-Students must be prepared for each lesson.

Parents responsibility:
-Parents should promptly pick up their children at the end of each lesson.
-Parents should regularly check and support the students practice routine.

*** Studio Equipment ***

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is inhabited by an energetic, adorable Jack Russel terrier. Do consider this when you plan to sign up for lessons.

No one could possibly gain anymore respect than Mei has with Olive. Olive loves the piano as a result of Mei's tutelage.
