Music Teacher, OWIS Suntec
Born and raised in Singapore, Joanne holds a Bachelors in Music (Piano) from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts and a Master’s Degree in Music Education from UCL Institute of Education. Besides Singapore, she has worked in the UK, Germany, and Malaysia as a Music Educator.
As an educator, Joanne is a firm believer in lifelong learning and the power of music to build a community. Although the bulk of her work experience is with young learners, she grew to enjoy sharing music with the “young-at-heart” as well. Regardless of competency, making music as a community warms her soul. She often shares the fascinating sounds of different cultures and languages in her classroom.
At OWIS, Joanne is looking forward to spending quality time with the diverse cohort of teachers and students. She particularly appreciates how everyone practises kindness - an important value that is perhaps neglected in the busyness of our lives.
When she is not thinking about teaching, Joanne enjoys coffee, authentic conversations, concerts, traveling, long walks in nature, cooking experiments and practicing mindfulness.
