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.

Techniques
- 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.

I have been teaching students from pre-k to retirement age. Early ...

As a performer in a blues band, and producer of blues albums I find there's a special place in my heart for the blues.

Acoustic, electric, flat picking, finger picking, or slide guitar. Mississippi Delta blues, Texas blues, English blues, Southern blues, Chicago blues, and more.

Whether you want to be a weekend warrior who plays around the campfire, or someone who wants to study at a professional or advanced level, we can make that happen!!!! My unique approach to teaching guitar will have you playing guitar on the first day. No joke.

At the age of nine, music started to become a major staple in my life. I took a strong interest in guitar, being shaped by many well-known musical influences. Also expanding my string family, adding violin/fiddle and ukulele at an early age, as well as studying classical piano. I love writing and recording my own music, working with various genres such as Folk, rock, pop, indie, country, alternative, and various Spanish and classical style guitar.

I enjoy adapting my music lessons to the style and genre of music my students love and enjoy learning. In turn, I want to help people find a love and joy for music, just as I have!
