My students are from 4 years old to adult, elementary level to ABRSM grade 8. I teach students about score reading skill, technique, aural and musicianship. Apart from teaching musical elements, I aim to guide them in feeling the beauty of music and enjoying playing music, then help students with their confidence.
I have the experience of teaching students from 4-15 years old, in preparing ABRSM exam and competitions. I did vocal coaching with students in the 71st Hong Kong Schools Music Festival, they all obtained highly satisfactory results. For teaching singing, I emphasis on aural and musicianship skills through playing games with students.
Language: I am from Hong Kong, fluent in English and Mandarin while Cantonese is my mother tongue.
