I will try to meet-up with new enquiries and provide analysis on the child’s ability, character and make the correct match for them. Apart from that, I will synchronize expectations from all parents so as to achieve the right balance in order for each child to excel under my school.” Florence explained.

Staying positive is the key to all success.”
With its adept team of 12 at fore, Florence Music is able to proffer superlative quality teaching at competitive prices, making itself attractive among its competitors. “I am especially delighted when I received positive feedback from parents saying that they have benefitted from the program I offer. There are also cases whereby some of the students are on the verge of giving up music, but after discussion with the student and parents, my team changed the presentation, materials and even teaching style to cater to the student needs. Now those students go automatically to the piano and since enjoyed it.” Florence elucidated upon Florence Music’s past achievements.
Florence then went on to divulge her motivation and inspiration behind what she does, “My husband is my best motivator! He will always remind me to give my best in whatever I do and he will support me all the way. I am also inspired by him through how he lives his life. He is my role model.”
