    Teaching the Fundamental Structure for instruments

    Eight Point Structured Program


    My Teaching Philosophy
    I teach violin, viola, and piano. I know as a parent it's important to find a right teacher that can not only help their children to play the right notes, but also develop the correct interpretation of the music. I have been playing for over 20 years studying with various experts across the world, graduated from the top music conservatory in Taiwan, a Master's degree at John Hopkins University, a Doctorate degree at Michigan State University, and taught for roughly seven years. While my background is extensive, what's more important for you the parent is helping your children succeed. I define success that goes beyond just performing music correctly. I'm passionate about performing music, and when I teach, I help develop my students passion for music as well.

    Normally, I have a free consultation with my new students to evaluate their skill level, interests, determine what schedule works for both of us, as well as suggest the length of the lesson which determines the rate.


    My Background
    At a young age I fell in love with the beauty and grace of classical music. From there I pursued the passion of music through violin, and followed up with the study of piano growing up. This passion combined with my hard work led me to get accepted at the Taiwanís Top prestigeís music conservatory, but I didnít stop there. I continued on studying across the globe from countries such as Italy, and Austria (Vienna) striving to perfect my skill, and learn various techniques from top musicians. I graduated from the Peabody Conservatory of Johns Hopkins University, where I got my Master Degree in Violin Performance, and recently completed my Doctorate Degree in Violin Performance at Michigan State University. I have also performed with various symphonies such as Peabody Symphony, Lansing Symphony, West Michigan Symphony, Traverse Symphony, and Pontiac Oakland Symphony.

    I am experienced at teaching beginners to advanced, ranging from youth to adults. Each of my lessons focus not only on improving the studentís playing technique, but help the studentís connect with the emotion and passion behind the music. My teaching and guidance has help lead my students to achieve first place in competitions as well as 1st chair in orchestras, but more importantly I have helped my students build confidence in themselves, and learn to enjoy the music they never thought they could perform.
