Yan Phu started learning from me as a real beginner since September 2006. Now she is 8 and has just taken her grade 5 exam. She is very good with her scales and pieces, and she has improved tremendously in sight-reading recently. During our regular lessons, we not only go through exam materials, but we also learn many solo pieces and four-hands music. I am grateful that Yan’s mum Eunice concerns much with Yan’s piano learning and helps with monitoring her practice closely (although Yan practises on her own). I feel she is now prepared to take a further and bigger step towards her piano playing. Next step? We will learn a bigger repertoire, build a soild technique foundation and work towards preparing for grade 8!

符恩 從2006年9月開始跟我學習,是一個完完全全的初學者。現在她8歲,並會在本月底進行她的五級考試。她的音階和樂曲都彈得很好,而最近她的視譜能力大幅提升。在我們的課堂中,符恩不止學習考試範圍的材料,我亦教導她彈奏很多其他的獨奏樂曲和四手聯彈的音樂作品。我很感謝符恩的母親Eunice很關注女兒的鋼琴學習狀況及進度,並定期留意其練習情況(雖然恩恩是自己自動進行練習的)。我相信符恩現在已準備好為她的鋼琴演奏邁進更大步。
