- Do you have a personal message for students?
The rewards of learning piano can be immense. It can make a difference in your present as well as your future. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to welcoming new pupils and helping them improve.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have experience teaching music lessons in a state secondary school (in Beijing) as a school music teacher. I also have experience giving piano lessons to pupils as a private instrument teacher. While I was teaching in China, since students' improvement was obvious and rapid during lessons, I got strong recommendations from parents. And now, I permanently teach in the UK. I currently run a specialist private piano teaching studio preparing students for graded exams from the level of prep-test right through to music college level. All my students have passed ABRSM exams (the exam board of Royal Schools of Music) at a high standard, most of whom have gained results with Merit/ Distinction.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Available on request.
- Where and with whom did you train?
At the Royal Northern College of Music I studied with Paul Roberts.
At the Beijing Normal University I learnt from Yang Jun.
- Tell me about some of your current students.
My current students are from the level of completely beginner to advanced player at ABRSM grade 8. My youngest student is only at age 4, all my pupils work towards ABRSM grade exams, which help them set and achieve goals while they enjoy making music. I also teach some adults who want to take exams or just learn purely for pleasure. All my students are passionate about music, hard working and I enjoy seeing them progress and grow.
