Availability: Piano teaching
I am currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of a prestigious pianist, Christopher Elton. Apart from that, I once studied with another world-famous professor Dan Zhao-Yi for more than 6 years.
According to my experiences, I deeply understand how important for students to follow a good teacher with right and inspired guidance. I have a lot of passion on teaching, so I would love to share all my skills and knowledge to students, and helping them overcome their difficulties. Also, I would teach in variety ways according to students` own situations.
No matter you are beginners, or up to a higher level, I can always help you to improve your skills, and stimulate you to enjoy your own playing confidently. In my session, there will be many interactions and you can expect a lot of fun from that.
