Teaching Philosophy: "Just like building a complex structure, laying a solid foundation is the key to all that come next. I think of teaching young beginners as an opportunity to show them a way, a creative and fun way, to begin a journey to self discovery and expression. It is extremely important to establish the technique, the fundamentals of good piano playing, at the beginning stage of learning, while offer useful tactics to help parents help their children form a healthy practice routine outside of the classroom. Patience is a virtue, creative learning is the key, a nurturing and positive environment is what will allow young children to flourish into the individuals they choose and want to be."
