I have taught at Tom Lee Music in Vancouver, Canada as well as at Stanford University. I have taught private students, aged 6 to 60+, in Hong Kong, China, USA and Canada.

I was a member of the Hong Kong Youth Symphony Orchestra (oboe and bassoon) and also won multiple prizes in the HK Schools' Music Festival (1st prize in senior bassoon solo, 2nd prize in wind concerto). I played with various orchestras and ensembles in Canada and the USA, including the Stanford University Orchestra as well as a couple of semi-professional orchestras.
