Rapport Building
I graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in a Diploma in Music (Teaching) as a Piano Major in 2010. During this graduation, I was awarded the "Best Graduate" Award and graduated with a Distinction. I then went onto attain a Bachelors in Music Education with NIE. I have grown up taking ABRSM examinations in both practical and theory. And have attained Grade 8 in both. I am familiar with the syllabus and practices of music examinations.

I have been teaching one-to-one students since 2014. The students whom I have met are a range from 4 years old to adults. I am comfortable with students who would like to learn piano for an interest or would like to pursue the academic route of taking on ABRSM examinations. I have qualifications in Singing as well and will be able to combine some singing into the piano lessons if that might interest a child.

I believe that music enriches a person and provides an avenue to develop oneself as well as one's mind to perceive things in a different way.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
I am updated with the curriculum by following various accounts as well as personal reading up. I also have a good support of circle of friends who are also in the music industry to share and receive tips on how to improve and support one another.
As a Good Tutor
I am able to communicate well and I believe that respect and open communication is important. Hence, I will always speak to the parent of the student or the student during the first lesson (and subsequent lessons) to understand expectations and work together to achieve these goals together. I also believe that there will always be a way to help interest and motivate a student, a teacher just have to find the spark in the student.
