1) What motivates you to work with international students?
It is a challenge for me to work with students from different cultural backgrounds. I find that it is fascinating how everyone has their own characteristics, which I find exciting when meeting new students.
2) What are two specific highlights of your training or education that you are most proud of — and that are most applicable to your teaching role at ISB?
I had a strong foundation in violin skills and practice methods from some great teachers, which helps me in working with my students.
3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I was born in Bangkok, Thailand but spent a year in New Zealand to complete my postgraduate diploma degree in violin performance.
4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
 Yes, the ABRSM (the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) violin exam grade 2.
