Rehearsal March 2019
Cristofori Music School Auditorium
Expressivo Piano Recital
Beautiful memories with random pictures.
Every performers enjoyed the performance! They put in a lot of effort, most importantly the progress of learning and improving with goals and achievement for more expressive music.
Time flies. I have been teaching for 8 months since I back from maternity leave. I cannot wait to organize the VERY FIRST public piano performance in front of the patients, visitors and parents. Is never easy to prepare a concert.
The objective of this concert is use the music to reach the heart of each patient. It could be a great idea to prepare a mix of some pop songs and classical program this time.
One thing cannot be denied is that I have been putting extra effort on how to teach students incorporate chords and improvisations when teaching pop music instead of traditional way. At first, I am quite reluctant to branch into this area as I have no idea how to start with.
However, sprinkling of pop has made me realized how the pop music can give my students a quick win even they're not pop fans.
A Musical Journey
What a memorable moments where this is the first time my young students play on the world prestigious grand piano Steinway and Sons on stage. An unforgettable musical serenade where performers showcase their musical talent and amaze the impressionable audience in cool, air-conditioned comfort and good acoustics at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre.
It is always heartening to see how my students progress over these few years and they have been trying very hard to prepare for this concert. Besides, the students are able to watch performance of violin, flute and piano duets at this time round.
It is always good to retain photographic memories of a musical afternoon. Everyone who had been present had no doubt enjoyed themselves. I'm looking forward for the coming concert in next year.
Another opportunity is offered to my students to perfect their performance skills right after concert on July 2016. The mini recital is held to improve and prepare the students who are going for Feb/March exam of this year.
My students had delivered an engaging live performance on a Yamaha Baby Grand Piano in the heart of Ang Mo Kio Hub. It was exciting as they get to know each other through a mini setting.
The recent piano recital are held at the first and most “harmonious” of the Waterloo streets.
I’m just very proud of all the students for working so hard on their pieces and I believe the process is more important than result. It’s not easy to play in a “strange” hall, playing on a “strange” piano and in front of “strange” people.
My students are highly motivated after this yearly concert. They feel satisfied to what they have accomplished despite of nervous which is very normal. Right after the concert, they have started to request the new songs they want to learn. Now, the passion and burning interest in playing piano which really comes from themselves.
A MUSICAL JOURNEY THROUGH THE AGES
As some of my students are the first timer for the coming concert. I've organized a rehearsal to prepare them to play in front of the public.
Spring Recital in every year will showcase student solo performances or duet performances. All students are encouraged to perform 2 pieces.
We've the concert at The library@esplanade, which is Singapore's first dedicated public library for the performing arts specializing in the areas of music.

Congratulations to two of my students Jonessa and Jolissa who are selected as Gold Winner in year 2014 and invited to perform during Gala Concert at Japanese Association Theater.
