FION NA

Piano Instructor

Hello, I’m Fion. I have been playing the piano for over 20 years, and for the past few years, I’ve been giving private piano lessons to students, both kids and adults.

Looking back, it’s an amazing journey I had with piano and music.

 

Thanks to my wonderful teachers, I’ve attained ATCL Diploma in Piano Performance and ABRSM Grade 8 Theory. 

I believe that learning an instrument comes with extensive benefits such as promoting creativity, memory, discipline… as these are what I have experienced myself too.

I vary my teaching styles as I understand that every student learn differently. I want to maximise the learning potential of every student, and have them play and enjoy good music! 

 

Teaching has given me immense satisfaction as I see my students improving and responding positively to my teachings and lessons. I also know how difficult it is to have the discipline to self practice. I remember back then as a student, even when I really love piano, I still did not have the motivation to practice everyday.
