Before beginning lessons, I welcome prospective students to participate in a trial lesson. Mutually, students and parents can get an idea of my teaching style, methods, and how lessons progress. And I can answer any questions you have before starting lessons. Please feel free to contact me if you'd be interested in scheduling a time to communicate.
"Teaching music is not my main purpose. I want to make good citizens. If children hear fine music from the day of their birth and learn to play it, they develop sensitivity, discipline, and endurance. They get a beautiful heart."
Weekly private lessons are offered in 30, 45, or 60-minute lesson slots depending on a student's age and experience. I recommend parents to participate in the lessons if your child is 11 or younger. In the lessons, students and parents need to take learning notes for their responsibilities through teacher's instructional demonstration. For more information on methods and the style I teach, please see Teaching Methods.
Group Classes for Ear Training
We are now offering summer intensive classes from 5/27-6/24, three classes a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Ear training is a way that helps students develop their aural skills by listening to specific notes, intervals, chords, rhythms, and melodies. Learning to play an instrument is not only to simply learn how to play, but also to learn how to read and identify different musical elements by listening. Students will obtain knowledge of music theory from the class, as well as the ability of pitch demonstration. Click here for registration form.
Students have the opportunity to perform in two recitals -- one informal studio recital in December that every student performs a solo piece without accompaniment. One formal recital in June that students perform solo pieces with accompaniment (if applicable) as well as string ensembles collaborating with peers.
