1) What motivates you to work with international students?
Because I had an opportunity to improve my English from studying abroad, I enjoy working with students to help maintain my English. Also, when I was in the United States, I was able to meet and enjoy music with many friends from many countries, so I want to continue sharing music with students from all over the world.
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?
In 1986, I was chosen to be part of the Yamaha Junior Music Course Training for young children ages four to six. I also consider myself to be a lucky student who has taken piano lessons with a dedicated teacher. Not only have I learned many piano techniques, but I’ve also seen great teaching in action, which I want to pass on to my students.
3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I am a Bangkok native but have studied in the United States.
4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
Yes. I have prepared students for tests in the Yamaha Grade Examination System.
