I am really fortunate to have Siwen as my piano teacher. I remember when I first joined her class, I just failed my grade 6 in the previous studio and when Siwen first listened to my playing she immediately identified the problem - weak fingers, lack of foundations. She put in a lot of effort to correct my postures, help me build strong fingers, all the essential techniques needed to play a piece. It sure was a challenging task for her as compared to teaching a fresh new learner as I would have to unlearn all the previous wrong techniques and relearn the correct ones. After 1 year plus under Siwen's guidance I passed grade 8 with high distinction and I received a recommendation letter from abrsm to join their scholarship programme. I would not be able to play a lot of great piano pieces without the techniques I learnt from her. Long story short, I was not born gifted, but I met a good teacher. Thank you Siwen!

I was one of the very first batch of Siwen's student way back in early 90s . I honesty I have to say if I have not been taught by her, I would not have have the skills to play the piano at a higher level. The techniques and skills she has given me are invaluable and can only be understood by people who are exposed to this. These is very important. You DO NEED proper skill to play a piece of music. It's not just about playing the right notes.

Under Ms. Siwen's tutelage, I have received a strong foundation in the area of technique and dexterity. When I first came to her, I had limited knowledge of the various aspects involved in piano playing. Her way of playing the piano, and the way she taught, involved a naturalness and ease which could overcome many difficulties. Thank you so much for nurturing my interest in music and for guiding me, Teacher Siwen.
Awesome!! The lesson was indeed an eye opening experience to me. I have never attended any piano lesson like Ms. Siwen's dexterity technique. Ms. Siwen has great passion to raise pianists. She is so experienced in this field and have unique methods for short and long fingers to fly on pianos. Amazing!

One of the best fine movement trainings I've ever had. Thank you Teacher Siwen for helping me develop such solid foundations in my fine motor skills.

Siwen is an enthusiastic, passionate, and determined teacher who helped me and my brother in developing a strong foundation in piano technique. We both continued playing, studying piano, and performing after moving away, and this strong foundation she taught us have served us well to this day. Her methods are effective and efficient. Siwen has also nurtured my interest in music and music history. I highly recommend Siwen as well as her dexterity and performance training without any reservation.
