Hi, I’m Teacher Bowen! I have been trained as a classical pianist since the age of 5 and I am currently a pop keyboardist at LASALLE College of the Arts.
When I was 5 years old, I was a very quiet child and my parents decided to sign me up for piano lessons as they believed that music could help in my personal expressions of my thoughts. Initially, as my lessons were extremely boring and my then teacher was very strict, I wanted to give up.
However, after changing to a more fun and motivating teacher, I picked up interest in the instrument and can no longer live without it! Today, I am grateful to my teachers for never giving up on me even when I did not believe in myself.
My passion for music grew and now I am studying music full-time and passing on the joy of the art to my students as a piano teacher myself.
As a young piano teacher, my greatest strength lies in my youth. When interacting with my students who range from 3-12 years old, I am able to strike conversations on common topics that they are interested in.
When teaching the basics, I utilise games to patiently engage my students in learning both practical and theory aspects of the piano. My students are comfortable when they speak with me about their thoughts and feelings of each class and if they face any difficulties.
Sometimes they use their creative minds to recreate some of my games into theirs just like the two students at the top row of this photo!
During the pandemic, my students opt for online classes and were awarded with certificates to appreciate their hard work. So glad to see them in-person again!
Achievement by one of my students: Participated in The Happy Pianist Festival 2020 and 1 Year Milestone!
Lovely DIY Teacher’s Day Card made by her!
Proud of my adult student who worked extremely hard for her first ABRSM exam and achieved Merit!
Here’s a video of how I make my piano lessons fun for my students.
Here are some of the gifts which I have received from my lovely students and their review about my lessons with them.
“I am happy to achieve great results for my first piano exam under her guidance!”
“Ms Bo Wen is really passionate and very patient in teaching. She ensure that I understand the topics before she proceed to the next one. She’s very friendly and always encourage you! I am happy to achieve great results for my first piano exam under her guidance!”
“Before I met you, I found piano very boring. Then mummy found you! You help me find out that piano is fun.”
Dear Teacher Bowen, thank you for making piano very exciting for me! Before I met you, I found piano very boring. After a while it became a bit more fun but then after I heard about exams, it became boring again. Then mummy found you! You help me find out that piano is fun. Then today you surprised me with a “good luck” paper. Thank you so much and Happy Teacher’s Day!
“I will always remember you because of your gifts and how you treat me. I will never ever forget you and piano.”
I love how good you’ve been to me. I will always remember you because of your gifts and how you treat me. I love your gifts and I love that you gave them to me. Like, the smiley heart face emoji pen. I hope you will like me as much as I do. And I will miss you so much. I will never ever forget you and piano.
Thank you Teacher Bowen, I love you!
I love Teacher Bowen’s class because of the fun games that we played and the songs that I learn!

“I recognise you are building her theory foundations and making it really engaging and fun. I’m glad you are making it fun for her to learn and develop interest in piano. She enjoys her lessons and I think it’s great.”
“Teaching wise I am quite satisfied with your teaching. You are gentle towards her and help to accommodate to her songs request.”
“We will always remember your patience and making piano so fun for her.”
See you at my class!
