1) What motivates you to work with international students?
When I was in high school, I got a scholarship to be an exchange student in the US. I got to experience the multicultural environment and importantly developed my intercultural-communication skill. I have worked as a Voice Teacher for 5 years now, I have developed a better understanding of many vocal problems and figured out the keys to fix and develop them. My five years experience of teaching and performing combined with my passion for working with international students, would allow me to create a fun and effective learning environment for ISB students to gain more skills and passion for both music and singing.

 

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’m holding a Bachelor Degree of Fine and Applied Arts Majored in Western Music (1st Class Honors.) Throughout my academic years I have joined various music activities, such as CU Band, CU Chamber, and CU Singing Contest. I am also a musical theatre performer. I’ve trained and played on many shows in the past. I am confident that my experiences on stage would help my students to become an excellent performer. My aim is to build a good attitude toward music and to build a better understanding of both music and singing in a practical way.

 

3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I was born and raised in Thailand. I also graduated from the Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok. I was an exchange student in the US for 1 year and I used to work at The Walt Disney World Resort, Florida for 3 months during university’s summer break.

 

4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
I have prepared my students for music auditions, competitions, and performances before. I always encourage my students to take the music exams but most of my students prefer to join other music activities more.
