Background

Music has always been an integral part of my life since my enrolment in the Yamaha Music Education System from young up till my recent graduation from the world-renowned Berklee College of Music.

I am an MOE/AMIS-registered freelance musician involved in three major areas of work: teaching (private/group/workshops), performance (corporate/wedding gigs), and music production.

 


 

Pedagogical Approach

Developing the passion for music is a top priority for my students. In my view, being a successful musician is not about fame or fortune, but the ability to inspire lives. My teaching style will align with the needs of the student - whether the end-goal that is exam-oriented or purely for leisure purposes.

My students have ranged from young children to NSmen and working adults, so the workload and pressure will be adjusted accordingly for the benefit of the student. I view the learning of music as a holistic development process, so I will strive to develop a student's understanding and proficiency in other related musical areas as well.
