Teaching Methods

As a musician who has been training for more 20years professional, the importance of fundamentals are undeniable. My teaching method is firstly building a good system of the playing with some specific technical drills, and cultivate the learning motivation.

For children and teenagers:
In order to arouse the learning interest, I’d like to start with pieces and studies as the basics for constructing a good playing mechanism.

For adults:
Since adults have a better understanding, I’d like to imply and explain some music theories into the pieces for understanding the compositional purposes.
