Caroline 是一個專業的豎琴老師,雖然我們是用線上形式上課,但她的專業能力無阻她的教學,她能清晰地指導我音準、拍子、音色、踏板轉換。在她的指導下,我覺得自己在手指靈活性上有進步,而且對於樂曲有新的領悟。她亦會按我的能力及強項揀選樂曲。

 另外,Caroline是一個十分親切的人,跟她上堂十分愉快,既有明確的目標追求,但不會有很大壓力,加上老師是十分具鼓勵性,所以我是十分開心在豎琴學習上有Caroline的指導。Leung from Hong Kong

Translation - Caroline is a professional harp teacher. Although we take classes online this does not hinder her teaching. She can clearly guide me in pitch, time, timbre, and pedal switching. Under her guidance, I feel that I have improved my finger flexibility and gained a new understanding of music. She also chooses music based on my abilities and strengths.

In addition, Caroline is a very kind person, and it is very pleasant to attend class with her. She has clear goals to pursue, but there is not a lot of pressure. In addition, the teacher is very encouraging, so I am very happy to learn the harp. Caroline's guidance.
