I love seeing students grow to love their instruments and be able to express themselves through performing music.  

I have more than a decade of teaching experience. I live in Brentwood, and I offer violin and piano lessons for all levels and ages in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area. Lessons can be done in both English and Mandarin. 

*Due to COVID-19, online lessons are offered as well.

Let's discover together how fun it is to play music!


Words from my students:

Sheng-Ching has gotten my attention with her impressive academic background but won my heart with her warm, patient and encouraging personality as my first violin teacher. I didn’t think I’d stick to learning such a difficult instrument as an adult if I didn’t meet Sheng-Ching. She has been flexible enough to teach me my favorite songs to keep me engaged and firm enough to make sure I also learn music theory and the right techniques as we go on. Taking lessons from Sheng-Ching makes learning fun and I look forward to every lesson with her. No matter how old you’re, I highly recommend Sheng-Ching if you want to develop a deep appreciation toward music as well as learn how to enjoy playing violin!" - Linna

"Sheng-Ching was gentle but firm in her instruction. At seven years old, my daughter had not yet developed the discipline, persistence and stamina needed in violin playing. Sheng-ching offered appropriate rewards to motivate my daughter without going overboard. More importantly, Sheng-Ching taught my daughter how to practice in between lessons. Thanks to Sheng-Ching’s suggestions, my daughter is now enjoying music at a deeper level.  Simply persuading a child to play in order to please a parent is one thing. Sheng-Ching accomplished way more by instilling a genuine love of music in my daughter." - Min
