I was born in Wellington, New Zealand, but I lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for seventeen years. Being in both countries, I have enhanced my knowledge and understanding of both cultures. I have been playing the piano since the age of six. Currently, I am in my third year of a Bachelor of Music, majoring in composition and doing a secondary major in piano performance at Waikato University. Music is my passion and I consider teaching as a hobby for me.

Teaching Info

I apply the Alexander technique in piano playing. I would like to help students find suitable approaches to piano playing by using this technique.

Students will also get to learn music theory, aural and musicianship skills and different composition methods.

I believe it is important to instil a love of music at a young age. I am always keen to expose my students to a variety of musical experiences by taking them along to concerts and performances.

More importantly, I want my students to have fun with music!
