Qingzi started her musical journey at age 5 when she had her first piano lesson. Since then she has never stopped learning and pursuing her interest in music in a wide variety of styles.
She began voice lessons at 15 years old and completed a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education, majoring in piano and voice direction. During her university years, Qingzi developed a passion for opera and musical theatre which led her to become an opera director and producer with the Peking University Academy of Opera.
Qingzi has been teaching private piano lessons and music classes for beginners in Beijing, Seattle, and Edmonton for 10 years. She loves the experience of encouraging and guiding students to interpret music and express their own musical understanding. She believes every student can find something in music that is beautiful to them.
Qingzi is able to teach in both English and in Mandarin!
Qingzi is a wonderful teacher. She truly loves what she does, and it shows in the way she teaches. Qingzi has a warm, positive approach to teaching, but is gently strict when she needs to be. Her communication style was just right for children. My daughter responds so well to her. I would highly recommend Qingzi to anyone as a piano teacher.
