Statement of Teaching Philosophy: "I believe it is important for teachers to teach students the techniques to play the instrument, but also implement creativeness by developing students’ individual interest and strength so they can find their own voices and characters through music. I aim to teach students the fundamentals which include basic piano playing technique, score analysis and interpretation."
