Do you have a personal message for students?
I wish my students to aim at not only correcting notes at a correct time, but also the understanding of musical elements – rhythm, melody, harmony, tone colour, structure and the origin of the music. In order to achieve this goal, I am offer a supportive atmosphere with genuine and practical advice for students to see the value of piano practice. Eventually, I hope every piano learner in my studio can be self-motivated and have a firm determination of piano playing, as well as feeling comfortable and balanced at the piano.
