My goal is to help students discover the joy of music, improve their own ability, and to gain confidence through their accomplishments.
Christine was born in Hong Kong. Her mother taught music at an elementary school. She began formal piano lessons at age six. She was involved and was awarded with high achievement by the Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music. During most of Christine's school years she competed in the annual Hong Kong Schools Music Festival, as solo and duo pianist, and won several awards. She has been under Tamriko Siprashvili's coaching for years. In addition, she is an accomplished accompanist.
Teaching Style and Philosophy
To me, music connects with our body, mind and emotion in mysterious ways. A beautiful piece of music can speak profoundly to our hearts. Classical music, especially, transcends language, culture and time. Learning to play a musical instrument well requires focus, discipline, and patience. It fosters expression of thoughts and emotion. These qualities all reflect many of the life skills we want our children to build.
My goal is to help students discover the joy of music, improve their own ability, and to gain confidence through their accomplishments. I look forward to being a part of your child's musical journey, just as my teachers have been to mine.
