Extraordinary piano lessons with a highly trained musician
I was double majoring piano and cello performance at National University of Singapore, Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music receiving full scholarship for my bachelor degree, I started teaching since then. After accepted in Yale School of music, I continue my passion for teaching as secondary piano lesson instructor at Yale University, teaching Yale undergrads with passion for music. I love sharing music thoughts with all ages of music lovers and all levels are welcome!
About Sophie Y.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music! Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I emphasize the importance of basics therefore I usually spend more time developing a solid fundamental skillI that allows my students to progress faster later on when they start playing solo pieces. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs.

The way she teaches encourages students to learn more and practice more. She is incredibly nice, knowledgeable, and ready to help.

Sophie is a nice teacher. She is responsible and patient in the lesson. And she takes lesson seriously so I got lots of music knowledge from the lesson. I'm so glad to have lesson with her.
