I am happy to recommend Tian as an accompanist and piano teacher. She is accomplished, dedicated, and delightful.
Tian accompanied the Delta United Church choir on January 20, 2013. Not only is she a very accomplished pianist, but she has wonderful 'people skills', too! She was able to accompany a soloist and our choir in a 'surprise' tribute to our Music Director, and did a fabulous job! Thanks so much, Tian!
Tian is also available for tutoring primary and secondary students
in mathematics and English.
