My teaching methods combine what I learnt from Italian bel canto, Vienna vocal techniques, and New York Broadway singing skills.
I teach with imagination, anatomy, and body moves and gestures depending on each student's need and what helps most to achieve the goal as well as successfully exploit the technique required at the moment.
I grew up in a big academical and musical family in which most of my family members are professors, teachers and musicians. Therefore, I grew up being trained in singing, piano playing, painting and dancing, and have bachelor degree of Music in vocal and Master degree of Art and Design. My bel canto techniques were from my professors from Conservatorio Santa Cecilia di ROMA and Konservatorium Wien University. After graduating, I continued to learn musical singing techniques from the musical teachers from New York Broadway till today.
I have performed both piano and classical singing as soprano in concerts since 7 years old, and started to give both private and group music lessons regarding piano, vocal, sight singing and musical theories since 17 years old. What I particularly specialize in is Broadway repertoire and Disney songs.
There is a chamber ensemble formed by three excellent musicians and myself, in which I am the leading soprano, which has been invited by and cooperated with the government in Taiwan to perform tour concerts in music halls several times. What we performed includes classical numbers, ballet and tango pieces, operas, Broadway pieces and of course Disney songs.
I also keep participating in musical productions, both performing as an actress and giving musical training and couches to other actors/actresses.

Perfect! Very good teacher. Fixed my pronouciation problems and I can tell my boice is growing. My usuable range is now from g#4 to d#5. She also responds to any further questions you may have regarding the voice. Highly recommended especially if you speak mandarin.
Rickey learnt fast and got my points quickly. In our first lesson he made some obvious progress in singing techniques and clearer diction. Although the muscles we use and the way we breathe while singing are needed to be trained with time no matter how smart a person is. Just knowing and understanding is not enough. I very much look forward to the next lesson with Rickey and see how much new stuff we've taught from the last lesson he would accomplish!
