1) What motivates you to work with international students?
I have been teaching international students for the past four years as a private tutor. I think international students are really interesting and self-motivated. They make me want to give my best to guide them to improve their music skills and to understand more about music.
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 have learned a lot from the College of Music at Mahidol University, especially in popular music, which is my major. I have been trained to understand more about music, which is not just performing but about expressing feelings through song. I have also participated in a workshop about writing songs and performing/acting from professionals, both at college and other places, which gives me a broader perspective. I think these experiences really help me when teaching ISB students.
3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I was born in Thailand and live in Bangkok.
4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
Yes. I have trained students in music theory and ear-training for the ABRSM (the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) exam and for applying to music college.
