Certifications

Dalcroze Eurhythmics Certificate Level 2

Jul 2016
Lucy Moses School, New York, NY

Dalcroze Eurhythmics is a unique and powerful way to cultivate musical awareness and understanding. It utilizes the physical response to music, redefining the coordination between ear, brain, and body to develop musicianship and musical imagination in a joyful and stimulating way. An "embodied" sense of rhythm, harmony, and melody leads to vital performance and teaching.

Shuhuan is a very candid teacher, I must say I like her style very much. Her approach is methodical, which I think is very helpful when you are starting out with the instrument. She is a competent, observing, and patient teacher, will consider hiring her again.
