    ~Min Min Tay (Pianist)~

  • Piano Teaching Focus

    When you begin your music journey with Min-Min, she will assess the strengths and weakness of each student. Some students encounter difficulties at the advanced level due to lack of foundation and mastery of:

    - Techniques in Pedaling.

    - Good Hand Posture.

    - Shaping of Phrases.

    - Good Tone Color and Expressive Playing.

    - Good Finger Strength.

    - Relaxed, yet Controlled Technique.

    - Proper Fingerings.

    - Interpreting and Understanding the music they are playing.

    - Art of Listening.


    The piano lessons will target these areas which may hinder a student from progressing and playing better than what they think they are capable of.

  • Other Interests

    Min-Min’s other interests include travelling, reading, attending concerts to unwind and rejuvenate herself. She also enjoys an occasional day out in the sun, rollerblading, a good book to develop the mind,and a good cuppa coffee.
