Samantha has an interest in helping special needs children in Singapore.

She has worked with children between the ages of 2 to 16.
- Kinder Piano Lessons for special needs children. Attention is paid to learning songs that the child enjoys, and rewarding them with a sense of accomplishment with each performance. Samantha avoids a rigid focus on technique and drills but will implement if the child is ready to progress further in his or her musical journey. Students will be invited to perform at our yearly recital.
