Profile of Piano Teacher
Ms Joanne Wong
Hello! I’m Teacher Joanne, and here’s a little more about myself.
I took up piano at the age of 7, like most students, I progressed up the levels and attained the ATCL Diploma in Music Performance at age of 23.
Back then, I was still working in the accounting industry while teaching part-time in a music school near my home at Compass One. That is how I started my teaching career, and then went full-time private teaching in 2015.
Over the years, I have taught kids and adult students, age range from 4 to 30 years old, over a range of genres. From movies, anime soundtracks, pop songs, jazz music, and any other kinds of music my students love to explore.
That’s what I do to cater to my students, because I believe students will be more motivated in their learning when they play songs they love.
I love to make my lessons engaging and always encourage my students to ask actively, whether it is during or after lesson time. Like the saying goes, there’s never silly questions in my classes!
I also derive joy from helping my students understand a certain concept or seeing them light up upon learning new music knowledge/ trivia during lessons.
While I’m not teaching, I’ll be seeking new innovative teaching tools like games/apps to help my students learn through activities and have fun during lessons!
Through these music games and activities, sometimes my students inspire me to see things from another perspective which I would not have thought of. In a way, I’m also learning and growing with them too.
I conduct my home studio at Sengkang, and also at students’ homes around Sengkang Punggol area. See you in my class!
“She’s very patient and hardly gets mad without reason. She knows how to explain theory topics very well instead o just getting frustrated that we cannot understand. She is very calm and knows how to make her lessons interesting. She does it by making games that we can enjoy and learn new things at the same time. “
“I have been attending piano classes with Ms Joanne for a solid 5 years now and throughout the years I can say that I have improved tremendously from where I begun because of how well strutted the class is… I’m really thankful to have her as a piano teacher.”
“Many thanks for being such a nice teacher and teaching me for the past 2 years”
“She’s really one of the most patient and caring teacher that I’m glad I met! I look forward to attending classes with her weekly and I feel really comfortable in the environment I’m learning in…”
“”lessons with her is always enjoyable. When I have problem in dealing some difficult part, she would be patiently teaching me till I get it right…I feel that having such a teacher makes me feel very relax when I’m having lessons and it will be easier to learn things””
