A Youtube clip about musicians' brain development and usage from Ted Ed

Lalo Symphonie Espagnole 

To parents seeking a violin teacher,


A lot of parents already know that music education can contribute to your child's development in many ways, as it uses both sides of the brain and the whole body. ​It has now been proven by educational psychologists that students who seriously pursue instrumental music further develop their brains and excel at academics as well as music. I focus on providing QUALITY EDUCATION EXPERIENCE for your child and nurturing your child as an ENTIRE PERSON. Below are list of some qualities that your child will be learning during my private lesson, chamber, and group classes.


  • Love of Learning, of Beauty, and of Music
  • ​Desire to Communicate and Interact with Others
  • Leadership and Team Work
  • Discipline and Responsibility
  • ​Learning from Mistakes
  • Serving Others


<Learning as "fun" experience>

When I began to learn violin at age six,

neither my parents nor I ever thought that I would become 

a professional violinist. However, learning the violin at my private lessons and at group classes with

friends was really fun, and I kept on learning. Therefore I realized that "fun" elements in learning are important, 

especially for beginners. For this reason, I have been researching and innovating ways to make learning

experience fun.

<Learn right every step and enjoy Music>

I first felt the true joy of playing the violin when I could really focus on expressing

my inner feelings without bothered by any technical issue. With many years of experience, I believe 

in stimulating the development of expressive talent from the early stages, and technique can be made

easy when taught well and correctly from the beginning. I have been teaching my students having the philosophy,

so that they can have their heart invested in musical expression rather than on technique - this can be

done in either traditional format or Suzuki format with students who want to seriously study or enjoy music for their lives. 

I also believe that "True Joy" is given to the people who take "it"- in this case violin - seriously. Unless your child finds joy in playing the violin, your child will eventually quit violin sooner or later.
