Teaching Philosophy

Lu Ye Piano Instructor in Santa MonicaAfter 14 years of classical training in China and 8 years of contemporary music in the States, I develop my own method of teaching, and combining the classical technique and contemporary sound.

I believe each individual has unique abilities, and I approach each one of the students differently. I create custom curriculum based on student’s needs and goals.

Best at most, I make sure each student has complete confidence in themselves and their musical abilities. I want them to be proud of who they are and what they can accomplish. I don’t want my students to settle for less; on the contrary, I strive for them to aspire to be their best.

In order to achieve high level of musicianship, it takes practice, patience,dedication and commitment.
