About Yong Wei

I graduated from Berklee College of Music with Summa Cum Laude in Music Education. I had the opportunity to teach general music in two public schools in Boston and Cambridge in Massachusetts as part of my student teaching experience.

I am a pianist and I have many experiences in teaching all sorts of musical classes, mainly the piano and music theory. I have been loving the process of teaching and inspiring other people. My teaching approach is that I give students the opportunity to speak and express what they want to learn/achieve and at the same time, challenge them but not overwhelming. I usually am available whenever students need my help.

Subjects that I offer are ear training, general music, music theory, piano, sight singing, brass and woodwind, arranging for modern music, jazz harmony.

Growing up in a learning environment where even one mistake is not unacceptable, I always felt like learning how to play the piano was such a robotic thing, where in reality, music is suppose to move you emotionally and physically. This is why I am very determined to make the learning experience of any student a memorable one as if like that person is singing their heart out in the bathroom or at a karaoke.

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.

Ear Training

When I was pursuing my undergraduate studies in Music Education in Berklee College of Music, I was hired to be a private music tutor for various subjects for 2 years, which ear training is one. I have worked with people who have no ear training knowledge or people who wants to improve on their listening skills to be able to transcribe music/play music by ear.

I had the opportunity to teach general music in two public schools in Boston and Cambridge in Massachusetts as part of my student teaching experience.

Music Theory

I graduated from Berklee College of Music with Summa Cum Laude in Music Education. I was exposed to all sorts of music theory. I had the opportunity to teach music theory in my college for two years for college students who needed advice/questions about any music theory concept. I also taught music theory to students in a summer camp aged 7 - 17 years old.

I have been playing the piano for 19 years now and I have had many experiences in both performing and teaching the piano. I was exposed to playing various genres of piano music, including classical, pop, rock, jazz, R&B, soul, funk and more, particularly in Berklee College of Music.

As a pianist who started off reading music for a little over 14 years, I was taught to learn how to play music by reading, which I have trained well over many years. With this skill, people will be able play/sing music instantly.
