Based on Suzuki Method and Philosophy.
I've been working with Russian professor, as well as Canadian, American, and Australian professors. All has their own ways on teaching and playing approach.
I've seen the good things and the bad things within this 10 years of playing violin, and 24 years playing piano. I am picking all the positive side with me to transfer to my students.
That being said, I'm a hybrid teacher, but fundamentally, I'm a Suzuki Music teacher.
I'm also interested deeply in psychology, and to work the psychology out in my teaching is a pure joy.
I learn from my students, as much as they learn from me..
"When love is deep, much can be accomplished", S. Suzuki.
"Music is the supplement of human soul", Dave Nathanael (myself).
"Skill = knowledge + 1000 repetitions", (quote around Suzuki teacher).
