She recently restarted guitar and piano lessons, and drums with her son. She consistently creates a music environment at home and engages with kids through music by jamming with instruments, dancing and discovering new music with her kids.
Chih Hui found the importance of early childhood education and language development at an early age. She is pursuing an Early Childhood education and is involved in Mandarin immersion education resources and teaching. She came across Teacher Vita’s Mandarin Music class (music and Mandarin language learning) and she was inspired to get involved in teaching.
