I have 18-year of experience teaching saxophone, clarinet, theory and composition; moreover, I am also a teacher of the IB curriculum. In addition, I am a professional musician, composer and event organiser with a music PhD and diploma in saxophone.

As an artistic director, I have organised many successful concerts and events to promote contemporary music and received awards from Hong Kong and Ireland. As an educator, I was selected by Quality Education Fund Hong Kong to teach composition in 2014 and was appointed to conduct the wind band at Lutheran Academy. Nevertheless, in 2015 I was nominated to conduct the Open University Hong Kong orchestra and employed by The Chinese University of Hong Kong School of Continuing and Professional Studies as a part-time saxophone lecturer. Finally, as a composer, my musical works have been awarded three times from Sound Imagination and selected in Up-close with music Ireland and ICF winter music festival 2015.

My students have also received different prizes in competitions, such as the Golden key composition competition and Hong Kong Music Festival in Saxophone. Furthermore, as a musician with a global view, I can speak fluent English, Mandarin and Cantonese; therefore, l can fulfil the need of students with different languages.

Education is different from teaching or providing instruction; education is about stimulating curiosity; therefore, asking questions is essential.

On composition teaching: I believe that using a story to start with can help us establish the structure and develop the compositions. However, innovative ideas provide the fundamental source of our works. In addition to the ideas, basic training is essential, such as analysis, which helps us understand composing. To me, education is about a journey of asking questions and finding explanations.

On musical instrument teaching: To learn how to learn is the way of my education, and I believe this is an essential skill to develop techniques. Teaching students to notice what mistake they may commit or what kind of wrong postures they make during their practice is crucial. Because the longer they practice, the bigger the error will become. That is why, as a music educator, we should avoid this from happening.
