Professional violinist and pianist. Well experienced and patient teacher, have been teaching for 15 years. Specialized in RCM and ABRSM. Performed at Lincoln center, Carnegie Hall, MET Museum, NY Time

Methodology

My teaching method are a combination of traditional, Suzuki, and emphasis on ways to relax while playing an instrument. I think foundation is important, which are posture, scales and arpeggios, finger/hand/arm exercises, sight reading, and ear training. By combine the above factors, students can learn a song stylistically, rhythmically, and intonation correct, and it encourages them to go for a harder pieces due to the positive experience they have had in the past. Depends on the situation, I also give students the flexibility to pick their favorite songs in any styles they like, I think motivation is the key to learn anything well.
I am also specialized in ABRSM and RCM exams.
