About this pro

We are professional piano and violin teachers specialized on our respective instruments.

We both have years of experience in teaching our instruments at institutions such as Settlement Music School, Community Music School, and more.

Our studio has annual student recitals. In addition, students who show interest and dedication can join performance opportunities and competitions outside the studio. So far, we have 3 students who has performed at Carnegie Hall as a result of their hard work!

We really enjoy sharing our passion for music.

It is the sense of community we build through musical lessons and performances with students, families, audiences, etc, that drives us forward.

It is great pleasure to see students grow with music as a part of their lives.

I particularly enjoy playing music with my students in an ensemble.

How did you get started teaching?

I was graduate assistant during my master's program.

I also taught piano to children at a small music school.

Now I'm a completely independent piano teacher.

My wife is s till a violin faculty at Community Music School, and teaches in our studio as well.


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages and levels.

From beginners to advanced college level students.

From young children to senior citizens.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

3 of my students participated in an audition, and 1 was selected to perform at a honor's recital, and 2 advanced to Carnegie Hall recital.

It was such a pleasure to see our students' hard work paying off, and the joy they had on their face after the recital.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Please see if the teaching style and environment matches you or your child's personality.

Music study is a very long-term committment.
The experience varies from studio to studio.
It is always good to try out diferent studios/schools before you committ to regular lessons.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

You will need your own instrument, whether piano or violin.

We can help you choose a right instrument and options (purchase, rental, etc) at the initial consultation.
