Personal Statement

I am a patient teacher who tries to make sure that my student understands everything before I go on. My teaching structure is very much based on the ABRSM syllabus and I do require my students to take the exams as a gauge of their performance. To that end, I am very thorough in preparation for exams. However, I am also committed to exposing my students to all sorts of music from around the world that I can find. Anything from jazz to latin american hits to pop music can be found in my lessons and if need be, I will explain what they are and let my students listen to samples in class. As I'm quite a music enthusiast, I hope my students will share my passion for all sorts of music too.

Musical Influences Mainly classical and pop, with some jazz and world music. Recently more influence of Japanese anime soundtracks and Korean serial soundtracks.
Performing Experience Practice performances in front of a small audience (4 to 5 people) with exam pieces. The performances involved listening and critiquing other pianists performances and listening to their comments. It was a very interactive and educational experience.
Education & Training I've been classically trained using the ABRSM syllabus privately. I've also had some training in playing other styles of music such as Jazz, Latin American music and pop songs. I've recently started teaching myself how to play Japanese and Korean songs.
