My goal is to cultivate/nurture a love for music in all our students to help
them develop into well-rounded musicians with strong technique, excellent
listening skills and thorough knowledge of music styles.

I will help each student to develop his/her full potential into a functional
musician in all areas of music (sight-reading, technique, theory, transposing,
improvising, performance, etc.) In addition, we hope to help foster a love of
music in all of our students, and to help create an interest or curiosity that will
encourage the student to want to learn. We strive to make lessons
interesting and fun.
Students will experience balanced program of   

* Repertoire               * Proper technique       
* Sight reading          * Aural training
* Music theory            * Music history             

  • Lessons could be instructed in English, Cantonese, & Mandarin.
  • Each Lesson is 30 mins, 45 mins, or 60 mins. (based on the level of students)

  • contact us for updated rate
  • Students are required to purchase music books for the class.
  • See Detail Tuition Policy here

Student recitals will be held 1 - 2 time(s) a year.  Participation in recitals will help a student
gain performing experiences and motivate and encourage the student in his/her musical
progress, as well as build technique and musicality. Therefore, we strongly encourage
our students to participate in all the recitals.

ABRSM is the world's leading exam board.  ABRSM conducts exams in over 90 countries in
the world. They hold exams twice a year, every May and November. Please visit ABRSM
website at for more information.

Students who show great potential and enthusiasm in their musical progress and acumen
will be recommended by teachers to prepare for music competitions.

Music theory lessons are prepared for the Royal School of Music
Grade 5 Examination. Each lesson is in 60 minutes.
Student Responsibility
Establish good practice habits from the beginning will progress more rapidly and find
piano practice and lessons more enjoyable. The amount of time required for good
quality practice will vary depending on the student's age and playing level.

  • To have QUALITY practice, instead of quantity practice.
  • Set clear goals for EACH assignment.
  • Be prepared for lesson with all books and completed theory assignment.
  • Keep fingernails trimmed short (should not extend past the end of the finger)
    to ensure proper hand position and good technique.

Parental Involvement
Most students are initially excited to begin piano lessons, but please be aware that
they will face challenges and sometimes frustrations. As initial enthusiasm is
replaced by awareness of the discipline and commitment required to attain
excellence, parent's encouragement and praise will be essential to your child's
success. In addition to this, please:

  • Set aside a scheduled practice time for your child
  • Supervise home practice sessions and making sure your child completes all
  • Provide feedback and suggestions for me that will increase the effectiveness
    of each lesson
  • Sit in on lessons periodically.
  • Ensure that your child arrives at their lesson at the appropriate time.
