Born in Sarawak, Malaysia and started college in Kuala Lumpur, but finished my degree in Boston, USA. I later worked in the music industry for 5 years in LA before going on to spend the next 12 years as a music instructor in Singapore (at the Seimpi Academy from music teacher to Master Trainer). I then moved to the UK and intended to retire, however I missed teaching and wanted to return. I speak English, Malay and Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese, Teochew and Hakka), a little Portuguese and fluent in Finale (music notation).
At 17 years old, the principal of my music school offered for me to conduct lessons in music history and ear-training. Throughout my college and university life, I taught music to help fund my living expenses, which granted me the valuable experience I required in order to excel within the music industry.
Since graduating in 2000 from Berklee College of Music in Boston with a Bachelors Degree in Music Film Scoring, I found myself in LA working both in music production as well as the music education sector. I have experience working with a multitude of music stars and celebrities such as Michael Bolton, Bette Midler, Barry Manilow (view album details, **Web Address Removed**), Monica Mancini, and Frank Stallone. In addition, I especially enjoy the adrenaline rush while preparing for some large projects such as Michael Jackson's 40th Anniversary as Solo Artist concert and the production of one of the American Idol shows to name a few.
During my time in the States, I conducted group (YMC and JMC) and individuals lessons at the Yamaha Music School in LA alongside my main employment in music production under Terry Woodson. After gaining the experiences in LA, I moved a little closer to home - Singapore. The first interview there landed me with some promising work at one of the primary private music schools in Singapore (which is consistently very high ranking in education globally) in Seimpi Academy. I was employed as an MIM (Music for the Intelligent Mind) teacher, conducting group and individual classes teaching ages varying from 3-71. Upon my promotion in 2012, my roles were to train potential teachers for Seimpi and to produce theory online classes. During my last few years at Seimpi, I was commissioned to write music theory workbooks for Grades 1 to 5 (ABRSM syllabus) and I am currently researching my way to write Grade 6 music theory workbook(s).
Music lessons should not just be about theory and technical, although those are the fundamental elements to a good foundation in music. For anyone to achieve their full potential in any subject, first it must be enjoyable. Being once a problematic student myself, I often struggled to encompass all aspect of music. Learning to persevere and overcome these obstacles has enlightened me to find new ways to circumnavigate any problem during lessons.
