Victoria Chang

Piano, Percussion

Teaching Statement
At the age of 5, I started playing the piano. The happy memories of attending classes, playing music games and learning new pieces shaped my life-long love for music. I hope to recreate the same experience for all my students. Private music lessons should be fun and challenging at the same time. My goal is to help every student to build a solid music foundation and to expressive their creativity through music.
