After graduating from the Trinity College of Music in London, England, Chin obtained an Associated Teacher's Diploma, Licentiate Teacher's Diploma, and a Bachelor of Music Diploma from Capilano University. She went on to graduate from Yamaha Teacher's Training Course, the Grade 5 Yamaha Piano Performance, and Piano Teaching, and became a member of the British Columbia Registered Music Teachers' Association, proudly having played music for over 30 years.

Chin majors in piano playing, having worked with a variety of students of all ages and levels. She looks to use her strength of tailoring music lessons to each student's ability, and motivates each student with compassion and directed inspiration. She is also fluent in English, Mandarin and Hokkien, providing students the option of learning in their first language, as well as relating to their specific needs.

I enjoy teaching music because music marks many perspectives, and it teaches us different ways to interpret the world.
Chin's has a particular appreciation for classical music. She enjoys playing Chaconne, Busoni's transcription of the Chaconne from J.S. Bach's Partita No. II for unaccompanied Violin. And while she adores Beethoven's piano Sonatas, her favourite pieces are by Chopin. Jazz artists such as Christopher Norton and Twilight Techno also have a special place in her heart.

While Chin is not teaching at the school, she enjoys playing and performing her talents, jogging, travelling and driving with family.
