About Irene

I have a Bachelors degree in Piano Performance and Masters Degree in Music Education from Andrews University. I am also certified in Suzuki Piano Method. On top of teaching the piano, I also teach organ, music theory, and music history.

I have lots of accompanying experience, especially with solo vocalists and choirs.

My teaching methods are very organized and efficient. I usually meet the student where they are. That way we can reach a goal more effectively.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I have a masters degree in Music Education, and have had experiences teaching in the Elementary and Secondary schools. Most of these subjects include general music, choir, and band. As an instructor for the CPAC Music Department, I was in charge of teaching music education majors how to teach general music classes. I also taught general music subjects in the college level (non music majors).

Music History

I was a graduate assistant to the Music History professor while doing my graduate studies in Andrews University. This job entailed tutoring, giving review classes, checking papers, and substitute teaching when the professor is sick or away. Later on, I became a music history teacher in Central Philippines Adventist College.

Piano

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance and have had the privilege of doing master classes with professional classical pianists. Other musical experiences include being an accompanist for the AUP Ambassadors when they won the Choir Olympics in Xiamen, China in 2004. I am certified to teach in the Suzuki Piano method.

Similarly, I hold Master's degree in Music Education, with special emphasis in church organ. I have 4 years of being a church organist both in the US and in the Philippines. I've had the privilege of teaching students with special needs as well.

Whether you want to be more confident or passionate in playing the piano, or learn hymns to enable you to play for your local church, helping you reach your goal is my number one priority.

Sight Singing

I have been a member of the Adventist University of the Philippines Ambassadors, champion in the spirituals category in the Choir Olympics, and champion of the Choir of the World Competition held in Wales last 2010. With these experiences, I have had the opportunity to sight sing a lot.

Excellent musicianship and service

I'm so glad to have found Irene and her great piano-playing skills. With just little notice, Irene was able to help me prepare for choral repertoire I needed to practice as soon as possible and she was very patient, responsive, and knowledgeable throughout. Highly recommend!
