Teaching

Words from parents

“My daughter’s study depends a lot on the teacher, not only in violin, but also in other things. She likes you as a teacher. If she likes the teacher, she will have more motivation and interest to learn.

We hope she can enjoy music, and understand that playing violin can make herself and other people happy. We also hope that she can understand that nothing is easy. Everything needs effort and hard work to have achievement. I think the current mode of learning is very good. We also feel your video or audio are very helpful. She can follow it at home during practice.” – Student’s mom

Your patience and detailed/specific coaching is really beneficial to my daughter. Also you gave her lots of tips and strategy to help learn the new techniques which is very helpful. You also motivated her to practice by encouraging her and asking each lesson on how well she practiced.” – Another mom
