Fun, Interactive Mandarin Lessons for Children from a Certified Instructor
With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I have been shifting all my students to online classes. Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :) Mandarin is a musical language that's quickly taking over the world, you'll have lots of fun learning this language. I was born and raised in Singapore, and am fluent in both English and Mandarin. I can read, write and speak at a bilingual, native proficiency in English and professional proficiency in Mandarin. I'll teach you depending on your level and age. For kids, I use fun, interactive storytelling. For the adults, I'll dive into concepts like the origins of the language, nuances of the intonations, all the while teaching you vocabulary and sentence structure. I'll also adjust my lessons based on your feedback, your learning style and your goals!
About Tammy Y.

Hi there everyone! I'm Ms Tammy and I teach piano, ukulele, guitar and mandarin on Takelessons. With the current COVID-19 virus crisis, I am primarily teaching online. If you are located in Manhattan, NYC, I am teaching in-person classes on a case-by-case basis. For students located elsewhere, I will be making periodic visits in an effort to ensure the best musical developments possible. I currently teach students based in SF, LA, Seattle, North Carolina, Panama and more! Check out my pictures to see my online classroom set up, or feel free to send me a message if you have questions! :) My availability may differ from what is stated on my Takelessons profile, so please send me a message if you have specific days and times you wish to inquire about. Teaching Philosophy: I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music and language, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others. A bit more about myself: Born and raised in Singapore, I started playing the piano at around the age of four. I graduated summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production. Today, I am a full-time music educator and an actively performing singer-songwriter. I sing and play the piano, ukulele and guitar. I'm a Steinway Educator Partner, and am also a proud member of the LGBTQ community 🏳️‍🌈 I teach primarily children, but I also have a few adult students. As everyone is different, I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from your favorite jazz and pop tunes, to the well known classical pieces, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and even record them! *I conduct group lessons for young children in mandarin/music and mandarin, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. Pricing will vary depending on the class size, length of class, frequency, etc
