Every student has potential to learn an instrument. My goal in teaching is to stimulate students' potential of music learning and to keep their interests refreshed. I like using the method of analogies related to funny and practical experience in daily lives that direct students to better understand instrumental learning.

Inspired by prominent string pedagogues, such as Paul Rolland, Ivan Galamian, and Shinichi Suzuki, my teaching approach is constantly developed in a more scientific and healthy way. Students will gradually be capable of setting up a relaxed body posture, developing solid fundamentals of rhythm and pitch, and making good quality of tone with enduring learning and practice.
