Teaching Approach
Playing the piano not only can bring enjoyment, but it also helps kids establish confidence and discipline. I believe that practice with commitment and hard work are essential elements not only for playing the piano but for whatever thing in life. I believe an encouraging and positive environment is very important as young musicians are developing their interests in playing the piano. Piano lessons are always fun in order to protect their interests, yet I maintain high standards in my teaching in order to prepare my students with solid playing at the same time.
