Lesson Details

Piano

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
Every teacher has different teaching approach and philosophy. I'd say every teacher that I met tries their best to help their students to learn and develop as a musician and a well-rounded person. I love teaching and sharing with students. I help my students to gain interest in music and art and enjoy playing music. In my lessons, I aim to help my students to become independent in music playing and learning so they can keep playing music for the rest of their lives with or without a teacher.
