PIANO TEACHING

Piano teaching takes a very special place in Chi-Ling Lok's work. Apart from performing, teaching is for her another way of sharing the joy of music making with other people. She has been a piano teacher working in London primary, secondary and music schools for over a 12 years. She has extensive experience in teaching children, teenagers and adults with abilities ranging from beginner to grade 8 and Diploma level. Over the years of her teaching she has maintained a 100% pass rate for her piano students with over 93% of them achieving “Distinctions” and "Merits" in ABRSM and Trinity-Guildhall piano exams. Her students have won music awards and exhibition prizes at prestigious secondary schools. She also prepares students successfully for  their GCSE and A-Level music requirements at their secondary schools as well as for music Summer schools and Master classes organised by the Junior departments at the London music colleges. 

Beyond teaching the piano Chi-Ling also works as an accompanist. She has accompanied student choirs and ensembles in various school performances and frequently accompanies students for exams and school concerts.

The videos below showcase some of the amazing work her piano students have achieved during the pandemic (2020 - 2022). They had online piano lessons during lockdowns and onsite piano lessons at the children's schools when restrictions were lifted. She is grateful for the permissions she received by the student's parents and schools for showing the videos on this website.
