Teaching Philosophy

In my studio, I nurture my students’ love for music and enable them space to think, create and express themselves through music. As a certified Suzuki violin teacher in violin as well as as an active performer with a traditional European music background, I guide my students with practical yet effective methods on how to play with ease and expression.
