Dr. Yos

1) What motivates you to work with international students?
I enjoy teaching clarinet in both Thai and English to effectively guide my students toward achieving their music learning goals.
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?
Nothing is more rewarding than encouraging students to love music making and help them express themselves through music performance.
3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I have lived in Thailand almost all of my life except from 2001 to 2007 when I pursued my master’s and doctoral degrees in the United States. I came to teach at ISB through a friend of mine who taught here before. I have found at ISB that most of the students have great potential to improve their music skills, and so many of them are willing to work hard to achieve their musical goals.
4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
Yes, I have prepared many students both at ISB and elsewhere to take music exams, such as ABRSM (the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) and others.
