As a versatile pianist, Wong is very passionate about her teaching. She was an adjunct lecturer at Hong Kong Baptist University, and a teaching assistant at the Chinese University of Hong Kong when pursuing her research interest in historical musicology. However, since it had always been her dream for higher level of teaching quality and learning standard, she became laser focus on building her private teaching studio business. Such success has brought Wong to realize more adventurous ideas from building a charity organization to a boutique piano school to educate the general public as well as mentoring other teachers to raise the general standard of teaching.
Wong is the first person to develop iPhone applications to train music aural ability specifically for standardized exams presented by Associated Boards of Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) and other music exam boards alike. She is also an author of Piano Freedom, Technique Transformation Exercise Book, and Music on Wings: Piano Beginner Coursebooks.
Recently Wong’s focus is online consultation, coaching performers for high level performance and mentoring teachers on quality teaching and studio business.
