“Mr. Wong has been very engaging and fun to be around during lessons. His instructions were clear and I found it very helpful he always do a demo example for me before it was my turn to play. He also made sure I knew what to practise at home and how to practise each part before each lesson ended. This gave me confidence that I was not able to receive from my previous teacher.” – Michael Z (17 years old, RCM Level 3 Percussion)
