BA in Music from Arizona State University
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.
- 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.

Awarded Encouragement Award from Metropolitan Opera National Council
Operatic Singing includes Classical Voice Training, Acting, and Language Coaching. As a working professional in this field I offer the most up to techniques based science.
Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.
Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. Having an open throat and lifting the soft palate not only help your boost the harmonic spectrum of you voice, but also prevents you from pushing or over-singing.
The articulators, the lips and tongue, must be trained independently through exercises that coordinate awareness and motor skill.
The most important part of the voice is emotion. Anyone can sing words, but if you don't know what they mean or how to express them they become nothing but white noise.
Selecting the perfect songs for your age, voice type, skill level, and interest is really important. It is important to find music that you love
I love sharing the knowledge and techniques I've learned through years of training and performing. Lessons are so much more than just learning the notes. Everyone has a unique perspective and way to express their feelings through music. I help my students embrace their artistry while learning. I hav

I have been teaching piano in the Seattle area for close to ten years. I have worked with young beginners to intermediate and some advanced students. My methods are eclectic and I often draw from the Kodaly Method for beginners. I encourage my students to sing along while they play to reinforce learning, accessing multiple neural pathways.
I teach my students to read music and play with feeling and heart. I instill a love of music in my students by creating musical moments in them and expose them to a wide variety of genres and styles. Students will learn basic technique, theory, improvisation, and performance etiquette, all while having fun!

Playing along with songs can be an effective learning technique, especially for drummers. With the background music in place, you can then practice different drumming styles, as well as practice staying in tempo, if that's something you're struggling with. Here is a recommendation from Jeff F., one of our Chicago drum teachers: As a working musician and teacher I have found playing along with recordings to be a valuable learning tool. Doing this enables you to really get inside …
