Ho Lingyan Joyce

  • ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Practical

  • Have experience in teaching pre-grade/for leisure to grade 2. I teach  both classical piano and basic pop music as well. If the student is  interested in composing or arranging, I can teach that too.

  • would describe myself as a patient yet fun teacher as I would write  songs that the student is interested in learning which is also  customised to the student\'s level of learning and understand. On top of  that, if the student is interested in putting up a performance (solo or  duet), I have a YouTube Channel to show their skills.

  • As for younger children (and even older children and adults), I would  focus more on having other percussion instruments to engage them in  lesson. Also, I tend to get the student to sing/hum as it would help  with their hearing as well.

My  goal as a music teacher is to inspire my students to better themselves  at their instrumental craft at whichever stage they are, and at the same  time impart my knowledge of Classical music history to them.

For  beginners interested to learn the piano or cello, I welcome students  who want to prepare for exams or even to just learn a new skill for  leisure. I strongly encourage beginners to be exposed to Classical music  from a young age and it is my passion to draw them into the world of  music appreciation.

I have sat through the Music Elective Programme for GCE 'O' and 'A'  Levels and have also obtained a Distinction in H3 Music (Research  Paper). Therefore, I understand the syllabus and structure of school  exams and ABRSM exams very well.

Having graduated and taught in a school in the United Kingdom has also  given me insight and fresh ideas to how music is taught in a less  competitive context and rather for a student's growth, both emotionally  and mentally.

I hope to make my student's musical journey a fun yet productive one!

  • Overview about Teacher Jie Ying

  • Hi,  I’m Ms Jie Ying. I have been teaching the piano since 2008. Besides  teaching, I do piano accompaniments regularly as well, having  experiences with a wide range of instruments in concerts, exams and  competitions.

  • During my journey in teaching, I have met many students, ranging from 3 years to even up to 70 years old.

  • The  joy of seeing them eagerly wanting to show you what they have  practised, being able to play a song from nothing, and simply just  seeing improve makes me contented and motivated as a music teacher.

  • Every  year, I try my best to organise performance classes, concerts or  recital for my students, kids and adults to perform. I believe it is  important for students to have the opportunity to perform in front of  their peers to build up their confidence, and most importantly share the  joy of music with others.

  • Throughout  my years in learning piano, even to tertiary levels,  was given many  opportunities to perform, not only that, a chance to be involved with  fun educational music group activities, so that we can also have fun  with our fellow peers besides attending the usual 1 to 1 serious piano  class. All these pieced up together, helped me to mature and grow as a  well rounded musician. This is what I’d like to try my best to provide  for my own students too. I believe that by having a more holistic  approach, students can then really understand what is music all about,  and that music is not just about hitting the right notes and producing a  sound.

Joined the Higher Music  Programme in Nanyang Girls\' High when I was in secondary school, and  continued my music journey with Music being one of my main H2 graded  subjects for my A levels in Hwa Chong JC as a performance major with 2  instruments, the piano and trombone.

Teaching Experience:
Taught piano & music theory part time from 2014-2017, students range from grades 1-6.
Stopped teaching from 2018-2020 because I started my own business, but  because of covid-19 we didn\'t do too well, and I am moving back to  teaching piano and inspiring more youth to love music. Hoping to get  students as soon as possible!:)

Performing Experience:
I play the trombone since 2005 till date. And I have been involved in  many bands and orchestras performing regularly. The list includes  Singapore Wind Symphony Youth Winds, Philharmonic Youth Winds, Singapore  National Youth Orchestra, National Youth Winds, Macpherson Philharmonic  Orchestra.

Overview:

I  believe in enjoying the learning process in music and having strong  fundamentals in music theory before starting to learn difficult  repertoires. I also love to have my students treat me as more of a  friend and mentor than just a teacher, and I am very friendly and  approachable!:)
