Teaching Info

About my teaching, I am committed to two ideals:

Firstly, I believe in making the music learning experience a positive and enjoyable one. Secondly, I believe in focusing on the joy of realizing achievements accomplished through hard work and dedication.

I have many years of teaching experience in music education both in private studios such as the internationally respected Yamaha studios and in the classrooms of both public and private schools. I am also able to provide music lessons which, in consultation with parents and students, adjust repertoire and teaching methods to suit individual needs.

I specialize in teaching young children from the age of 4 and above, but I also offer the following types of lessons:

* Piano from absolute beginner until Grade 8
* Piano or general music lessons for students with special needs
* Musical composition from piano, all the way to composition for full orchestra
* Music Theory from beginner until high level graduate school entrance examinations
* Multi-lingual lessons – English, Mandarin Chinese or Taiwanese.

About the music studio:
Southwest location from the city centre near Riccarton, across the road from a beautiful park. Free parking

I’m looking forward to helping you achieve all your musical goals!
