How did you get started teaching?
I started to teach piano since I was in High School. I was the accompanist for the High School choir and one of the teachers asked me to teach her daughter. At that time, I already new that I had a vision to pursue farther studying in Piano in College.
What types of students have you worked with?
Over the 30 years of teaching, I’ve thought from 3 year olds through adults.
They were beginners through advanced. Some students competed for competitions in the area and won as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.
Some of my high school students had received Music Scholarships from their college.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Try to find a teacher who enjoys teaching people with different background, respecting others, and appreciate work of Arts & Music around us.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
I want students to ask questions to themselves. “Am I going to put some effort and time for the lessons?” If you are not committing yourself to learn something then it will be a difficult journey and you might lose an interest. This will lead a person to quit in a short time. However, I could also work with a student who already lost an interest in learning to play the piano. Also if a student really wants to learn and want to give a try then I am always willing to work with any students.
