Catherine’s Music Studio strives continuously to further the musical journey of all our students
Music has no boundaries when it comes to how much we can learn, and grow. Whether you’re a child, or an adult picking up an instrument, or beginning a vocal journey for the first time, there are endless opportunities and zero walls when it comes to music, and how it can help us throughout so many different aspects of life.
At Catherine’s Music Studio, we strive continuously to further the musical journey of all our students in Stonegate. I pride myself on being a patient teacher, and understand that everyone’s growth and progression happens differently. I take the time to listen to my students, and encourage them to set their own goals, and go far beyond where they think they can reach. It’s always an incredible feeling to see an individual go past where they thought they ever could in music – music itself can have that effect on just about anyone, and it’s a real treat to be able to see its power in action day after day.

Our mission is to bring music to absolutely anyone who’s interested, at any age. With the variety of lessons and skills we offer and teach, there is truly something for everyone to enjoy on their personal musical journey. Whether you’re preparing for a recital, or using music as a new hobby or even a form of stress-relief, there is no wrong reason to begin learning an instrument or studying voice, or music theory as a whole. Encouragement will always be a top priority at Catherine’s Music Studio, no matter your level of prior music knowledge, and no matter the speed of your progression. As stated above, music is a journey, and when you’re here, it’s my job to help guide you through that journey! Every student is treated as an individual, and therefore pacing and growth will be different for everyone. Musical growth should be an enjoyable experience, not a stressful or hectic one.
The studio itself is in a wonderful location in Irvine – a bright atmosphere where growth is encouraged and applauded. We use an upright Yamaha piano, a Roland digital piano with recording options, an extensive collection of musical scores and CDs, and so much more. It’s our goal to have music surround the studio, to serve as constant inspiration.
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents”
-Ludwig van Beethoven

Welcome to the world of music – I’m glad you’re here!
I was introduced to music at an early age and started playing piano when I was 9 years old. My parents encouraged me to take lessons to enhance my passion, and by the time I was 15 years of age I had won several large piano and singing competitions in Taiwan.
After winning one of the largest competitions in Taiwan, I came to perform throughout California. It was on that trip I fell in love with the US, and knew one day I would come back to perform and teach.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance in Taiwan and began teaching in 1996. Once arriving and living in Los Angeles, I obtained my certificate of Jazz Piano and Voice at The Musicians Institute in Hollywood.
With years of experience performing on stage as a piano player and singer, and with an international orchestra; my lifetime goal is to share my love of music with students.
One of my greatest joys is seeing students introduced to music, watching their skills progress, and helping enhance their passion for music.
