1) What motivates you to work with international students?
I look forward to meeting the international students and sharing about music, experiences, and culture. I always try to make activities fun and explore new songs to play. It makes me happy to work with them.
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 graduated with a bachelor’s degree and a major in anthropology, learning about societies and cultures, understanding different thought. I was able to see different places and understand the behavior of people in unique places. So I feel that when I work with students, I sincerely understand them.

Because music was so important in my life, I decided to continue my studies with a fine arts master’s degree in music. I learned the piano with many dedicated teachers, who understood me and pushed me. I can play classical, pop, and jazz, which gives me the ability to teach students to play the piano with different styles. I have been teaching piano for 15 years.

3) Where have you lived most of your life? If not in Thailand, what brought you here?
I was born and raised in Thailand.
4) Have you worked with students before in preparation for their taking music exams?
Yes. I have prepared students for both practical and music theory exams.
