About Shawn Yu

Xiaohang Yu
Shawn Yu
Music Teacher, Master
Location: Alexandria, VA
Speaks: English, Chinese
Instructs: Cello
Education: Doctor of Musical Arts
Performance Experience: 15 years
Teaching Experience: 11 years
Teaching Philosophy: As a mentor for my students, I would like to teach them through a Zen-like teaching method. I would gently give them things to think about, to imagine, and let them spend time working out their own ideas. I believe anyone can develop his or her musical abilities. Some may learn faster than others, but no one can have success without the proper guidance.
