*Lesson curriculums are designed for each individual students.

*Students will learn and develop step by step for finger techniques, reading skills(understanding rhythms, notes, articulations, dynamics and phrasings), and fundamentals of music theory as well as bring out their musical expression, and how to use their body(how to relax your body when playing the piano), how to produce a nice and beautiful sound throughout from the beginner level to advanced level using well balanced method books and technique book +  various musical repertoires using piano literature books for many different styles and different composers' works. 

*Students are given many performing chances in different settings(both formal and friendly settings) and will build up their performing experience and strength. 

*I understand each student is unique and has different learning pace. My goal is to help them get their life lasting joy of playing the piano, for both physically and mentally. 

*Very beginner level students play with me or their parents or siblings to enjoy playing without too much pressure but can feel rich sound from the beginning level.
