Jialiang is a passionate educator. For the past nine years, she has taught private lessons and group classes in the University of Toronto Piano Pedagogy Program. She strives to help students build a solid technical foundation, with which they can express their musical ideas and feelings. She is well-versed in guiding students in how to interpret the music through integrating the knowledge of harmony, form, historical context, and stylistic features. Many of her students have achieved first class honours in RCM exams and received awards in local music competitions and festivals. Besides private teaching, she has extensive experience in group music teaching. During her work at the University of Toronto Piano Pedagogy Program and previously at WizzKidz Yamaha Music School, she has taught solfege singing, sight-reading, ensemble playing, keyboard harmony, composition, and improvising. In 2014, she led workshops on visual art-inspired keyboard improvisation at the Yamaha Junior Original Concert Music Camp in Whistler, BC. She regularly coaches undergraduate instrumental and vocal students to help them prepare for recitals and juries.
Jialiang believes it's never too early or too late to learn music and wants to help each student develop their unique potential and discover more joy in music. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to CONTACT her.
