Dr. Lin's studio is located in Valdosta, GA. All interested students are welcome to inquire about scheduling an interview/audition.
I am committed to the growth and success of all students who enter my studio. Growth and success are not defined by awards or external recognition, but rather by personal change and development. Through years of successes and failures in teaching, I have discovered that the journey of teaching piano is not a job accomplished by me alone, rather in its most fruitful form, it is a partnership with the parents. The substantial level of parental support, investment, determination, and pride in their child is what allows a child to blossom. There is no perfect child and no two children are the same, they have their own strengths and weaknesses that are worthy of celebration and nurture, but every child shares the incredible capacity for growth. I cheer for each of my children and strive for their success alongside their parents.
Studio structure include:*
Two 45-minute lessons/week.
Students will study repertoire, technique, and theory.
Students will participate in festivals, recitals, and competitions as deemed appropriate.
Parents will be committed to attending lessons with their students as well as assisting in practicing at home.
Students must have daily access to an acoustic piano or an appropriate electric piano; if students do not currently have access to a piano but wish to begin lessons, I will be happy to assist in your search for a piano.
Lessons will be paid the first week of each month.
*Subject to modification as needed for each student.
Pricing: $50/45 minutes
