She has performed duets at lunchtime concerts for students and staff of NTU to enjoy music during their breaks. Besides, she has also performed at the Nanyang Arts Festival. She enjoys piano and has been learning it since she was 3 years old. She hope she can inculcate this love for music in her students.

  • Lessons will be customised depending on learners' abilities, preferences and musical background.

  • Many new learners find reading musical scores tedious so she hopes she can teach them to play by ear and using some common chords to play a full piece on their own. Learning music is not only about the technical skills but also about the emotions behind the piece, so it is important to know when to use the pedal, and the emotions one would like to portray with the playing. Also, a good knowledge of the musical periods are important, and with my experience taking the ABRSM examinations. She is confident that she can imparts these relevant musical knowledge and technical skills to her students.
