Miss Teresa has participated in well-renowned music festivals, and performed frequently as a soloist, accompanist and chamber musician in Europe, North America, and the Greater China.

As a versatile pianist, Miss Teresa is also very passionate about her teaching. She was an adjunct lecturer (performance coach) at Hong Kong Baptist University and a teaching assistant (musicology) at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. But in order to follow her passion in private piano teaching, Miss Teresa started to venture out on her own and realize many of her 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. Other than teaching, Miss Teresa also loves organizing creative music concerts for her students and fellow musicians to participate in and share with others the joy and beauty of music.
Miss Teresa is the first person to develop iPhone applications to train music aural ability specifically for ABRSM music exams. She is also the author of Piano Freedom, Technique Transformation Piano Exercise Book, and Music on Wings: Piano Beginner Coursebooks.
Miss Teresa believes that music connects people, and the best way to enjoy it is to make it!
