About Me

I am originally from Shanghai, China and attended East China Normal University where I earned a Bachelors of Music degree. While attending university, I taught group lessons and private lessons with students whose ages ranged from kindergarten to adults.

I have also traveled to multiple countries, while performing with the Shanghai City Symphony Orchestra. Afterwards, I decided to further my studies at the University of Texas-Austin and under the care of Professor Sandy Yamamoto, I received a Masters of Music degree in Violin Performance.

Along with my teaching experience started in 2010, I am a Certified Suzuki teacher. 

I just moved to Cedar Park, TX with my husband Chris, and our dog Taco. In our spare time, we enjoy hiking, paddle boarding, and most importantly, delicious food!

       我的中文名字叫平远,我出生在上海,成长在无锡。2014年,我从华东师范大学音乐系毕业,并拿到了本科学位。自从进入大学,我便开始了我的教育生涯,其中既有小组课,也有一对一教学,大学四年教过的学生年龄跨度从幼儿园到成人。在大学期间,我除了自己的学业,还积极参加了校内外的交响乐团和室内乐团,如华东师范大学交响乐团和上海城市交响乐团,并随团多次在国内外的知名舞台上演出。

      本科毕业后,我考入了德州大学奥斯丁分校,并在Sandy Yamamoto教授的指导下顺利毕业,拿到硕士学位。我从2010年展开我的教育生涯至今,并在2016年完成培训,成为了注册铃木小提琴教师。

      我和我的丈夫Chris,还有我们的小狗Taco现居于Cedar Park。闲暇时光,我们喜欢进行各种户外运动,享受大自然和美食。
