My interest in classical piano began at the age of six. Piano playing is something I have always been passionate about. It has taught me faithfulness, and like playing the piano, means to take action, be accountable, always show up, and never give up. My first encounter with both of my piano teachers growing up, wasn’t just a piano lesson, but rather a realization that my main ambition in life is to help other students gain the form of expression that I value. A pianist tends to follow their role models in order to achieve what they desire in life, and both my piano teachers were my biggest role models. They’ve taught me discipline, to cherish beauty, and to set goals. They’ve also taught me that small sacrifices are what’s needed in the attainment of a greater goal.

With classical piano as my main focus, it has become the educator that taught me the importance of balance and discipline, and it has become the spark of my intellectual curiosity. What I learned in my seventeen years of piano lessons, is that learning an instrument is such an intimate act. I found greatness in myself!
