“I love working with children and watching them grow musically. It is a rewarding job being a music teacher, knowing that I have made a difference in a child’s musical journey.”
“I believe everyone can do music, given the opportunity. Music teaches a lot of life skills such as self-discipline, perseverance, etc and musicians are well-rounded people. My lessons are structured, with room for flexibility. I believe children learn well through fun and challenges. Most important of all, I want students to enjoy their learning, and carry the love of music with them no matter what they do in the future.”
