Concerto Pianist studying with Peter Serkin in New York teaching in Vancouver

Methodology

I like to teach students who are already very familiar with the basics and intermediates of piano, and have potential and musicality as an innate ability. I am passionate with my teaching and create an atmosphere of intensity during lessons. Extremely flexible to how a student learns or takes in information, however, the student needs to be good at retaining information as well.

Background

I am a pianist who has been playing the piano for 13 years. Won national competitions at the age of 9, and has been working with prestigious pianists from around the world all my life. Now at Bard Conservatory in New York doing a double degree in Piano performance and Economics. Also enjoys to play Pop music
