Frequently asked questions
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have fourteen years of experience studying piano, seven of those years studying with former concert pianist Kwok Koo. During these seven years I have placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th in several piano competitions, and passed the certificate of merritt level 10. Currently I am working toward playing Saint-Saens piano concerto No. 2 with the Mission College orchestra in Spring of 2019, and other pieces as well. I am constantly learning about music and how to play, and learn to play piano better, thus always furthering my teaching ability and musical knowledge to pass on to my students. In other words, when you take lessons with me, you will not only be learning what I already knew five years ago, but what I am currently learning today in terms of interpretation, technique, piano practicing, memorizing, and music theory and history.
How did you get started teaching?
I started teaching my mom's friend's daughter when I was 13 years old. Then I grew my studio after that.
What types of students have you worked with?
All ages 3- adult
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
Went to the final round of the San Jose International Piano Competition and heard three amazing pianists play. Inspiring me to move forward and compete in this competition in 2021.
