Teaching method & experience
Adeline has more than 20 years of teaching experience as a piano teacher. She was with Lowery Music School for 12 years since 1992 and Galleria Music School for a year in 2004 before going on to teach piano on her own till now.
Adeline has taught students from many nationalities the Middle East, North America, Europe and Asia and their age groups range from 3 and half to 65 years of age.
Having worked in several teaching positions, she has enjoyed meeting and working with many varied personalities. One aspect of being a great piano teacher is having excellent organization skills, which include lesson planning, gathering materials, and ensuring that all types of assessments are completed in a timely manner.
My training with Trinity in music allows me to bring rhythm, notation and harmony to my students. I use my piano playing to facilitate an exploration of music in which all students can participate. Through this participation, I give students the opportunity to enjoy making music as I have, and to reap the benefits of increased academic performance, aural and memory skills, and self-confidence.
Piano lessons objectives include
- Building a sound technical musical background of tone, rhythm and transposition
- Educate students in keyboard knowledge and sight reading skills
- Ear training and improvisation skills
- Exposing students to variety of repertoire and musical styles
- Preparing students for piano exams
Adeline also liaise with parents on the child’s progress as she believe it is of great importance to have parental support and understanding.

Hear what parents/ students say
"Thank you so much Adeline! Although Naomi has just turned 4 only recently, she is surprisingly, enjoying the lessons. Even though she started out struggling with even recognising alphabets and numbers, she is so much better now than when she started barely a few months ago. I can see that she is gaining confidence. She even reminds me to practise with her. I am proud of her learning piano! You are also one one the most reliable teachers, rain or shine. Really appreciate you!"
~ Jean Tan, mother of Naomi, 4 yo
"Teacher Adeline is effective even during online via Zoom! Thanks!"
