EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
I studied Composition and Piano at the University of the Philippines College of Music. I was accredited by the Trinity College of Music in London to prepare students in Dubai for their examinations. I am presently preparing students for the Royal Conservatory of Music exams in Canada.
I have been teaching piano for about 35 years now. Students come to me starting from a beginner level or starting from an advanced level, and they invariably come out knowing—and loving—the piano all the more than the first time we met. This is because I've managed to pass on to them my passion for the piano and what it can do to those who know how to bring out the best of this magnificent instrument.
I teach according to a student's goals. I, therefore, have to make a good deal of adjustments to my lesson plans. I do not mind going the extra mile for my students. If need be, I even do special music arrangements for my students according to their level of competence. I use Finale in order for the sheet music to appear clear and professional.
Students enroll in schools when they're willing to go through a school's curriculum. Some don't like this. I don't want to pressure students who don't want to be stressed with their music education but who only want to enjoy making music. I let them learn at the pace that's perfectly adapted to their lifestyles and capabilities. I always make sure that they understand every bit of what I taught them, and that they come out of each lesson better—in knowledge, skills, and insights—than when they came in.
