Elly Wen Piano Lessons
First of all I love music and I love to teach music. My great passion on music have been leading me through a long educational path. I achieved Bachelor of Music degree from Xinghai Conservatory of Music from China, and completed two Music Master degrees repectively on piano performance, and piano peadogy. In purpose for best understanding a world class music grading exmanination ABRSM, I got the performance diploma and theory grade 8 certification.
I have been teaching piano and music theory for more than fifteen years, and all students have their achievements on their study. I insist to teach music, not only playing the keys. The education and experience enable my teaching to stay effient, effective, professional and enjoyable.
Currently, my studio has some opens to online lesson. The service allow people to take lesson at any places where they find convenient and comfort at, and it provides great advantages of no time on travel, on cost of gas, and no worry of weather. The sevice is perfect for teenage students who are above 14 years old, and adults especially. Online lessons goal oriented . For each lesson/ lesson series, students and I will be working on planned goal(s). Students will acheive a certain place in musical and technical from where they enjoy the joy of music and the playing of themselves.
What I enjoy about the work is to teach and share music with different people. I like to customize my lesson for each person by their own features. When the students find the way to understand music, and find their way to express themselves in music, I am truly blessed.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
The event that I am fond of at this moment is piano duet concert. Playing fours hands is more than fun to students and teacher. It provides the chance for piano students to learn to listen and to cooperate. Pianist is the least likely to be team player, due to piano is basically designed for solo. Playing duet and duo have many benefits to pianists.
