Beginner to ARCT


Seneca Hill Drive and Don Mills Rd.

I am a professional cellist who graduated from University of Toronto Bachelor Degree for Cello Performance, and then went to Mannes New School of Music in New York and graduated with a Masters Degree for Cello Performance. I have studied under many great teachers, including Joseph Elworthy, the president and CEO of Vancouver Academy of Music, under Shauna Rolston, head of string department of University of Toronto and a great soloist, and under Ronald Thomas, an American cellist and professor at Mannes New School of Music. I can also play both piano and flute to a very high standard.

I have done many performances in New York, Toronto, and Taiwan. These performances include solo performances, chamber music, and orchestra's including Garden State Philharmonic, University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and played with Martha Graham company for Rite of Spring. I was the Performance Head of ECCHO, a charity group in University of Toronto, which is responsible for organizing concerts and gathering performers, and being a performer myself.

I have many years of experience in teaching. I taught in both Toronto and Taiwan, and students of all ages. I have taught both privately and in music schools. I have taught both individual lessons and group lessons. I am an easy going teacher, however also a very responsible teacher who makes sure to teach everything I know to my students, helping students not only achieve the highest standards of playing but at the same time, have fun and enjoy music.
