I believe in developing students’ full potential step by step, as a mentor, to inspire them to foresee a higher vision. To me, every student is an expert learner without limitations. Tailored to each student’s learning progress and needs, my lessons include practice tasks based on pedagogical principles from both the traditional approach and the Suzuki method. My top priorities in teaching include good posture and confidence to perform. I emphasize the importance of aural development by listening to recordings carefully to recognize fundamentals, such as tunes and rhythms, as well as more detailed aspects, such as articulations and tone quality. I also focus on performance practices and interpretations of each musical composition. Overall, I see every lesson as a lesson in life, equipping my students to face challenges with practicable strategies for understanding personal skills, such as patience, determination, consistency, focus, self-motivation, memory, logic, self-awareness with evaluation, reflection and self-correction, as well as interpersonal values of trust and respect. I hope to eventually be one of the educators who paves the way for a better world for the next generations.

As soon as the lesson began Mr. Ming-hang jumped right in and started to go over all of the important information a beginner like myself needed to start learning the violin efficiently. He was very clear and encouraging through out the lesson. I highly recommend him for anyone who is wanting to further there violin career or even for beginners with no prior knowledge of the violin.

I have been Mr. Tam's student for a little bit over a month now and I have to say he is one of the best, if not the best, teachers that I have ever had. I am a high schooler, and I had been playing the violin for a long time by the time I started taking lessons with Mr. Tam. He wasted no time in beginning the lessons. We started off basically where I had ended with my old teacher, with advanced scales and a piece of my choosing. Throughout the weeks, he follows up by sending me an email asking if I had any questions for him before the next session the following week. He records every session and sends them to me so that I can review my mistakes and listen to the tips that he suggests. Overall, he is an amazing violinist and teacher. He has a great sense of humor and is knowledgeable in the world of classical music. He will explain things thoroughly if you do not understand and seems to take great joy in his profession.
