A challenging year of teaching!

Upon reflecting this past academic year, despite my absences due to family emergency and Covid-19 Pandemic that caused most of the lessons to be instructed online, I was pleased with my students' progress. Not only that they continued accelerating their studies under these circumstances but also had many achievements that included:

  1. Contributing more than 30 videos to the “60 seconds music relief" project! I have received many praises about their performances. I recommend that our students subscribe to the studio youtube channel so they can learn from each other's playing. It included many RCM repertoires and etudes!
  2. Many of the students achieved First Class Honors with Distinction, which is 90 points above in both May and Dec RCM exam. Some of them were prized as center and state winners. Here is the full list of everyone's recognitions.
  3. Winning competitions like US Open Music and MTNA California State Music Competition as well as CAPMT music festivals Piano Audition. 

I look forward to the coming academic year, although the uncertainty lies ahead, I am confident that my students are ready and fully prepared for the upcoming challenges and new chapters. 

As always, it's a privilege to embark on this amazing journey with these wonderful and dedicated young musicians!!
