Teaching in China is a great way to experience its culture, and there are already tons of information online about teaching English in China. But what if you have other expertise you can offer, such as music (or your particular instrument)?

If you’ve read my posts on teaching music or piano in China, you’re really interested in making this move and would love to know more, here’s what I can offer in our 1-to-1 Consulting session:

In-depth discussions on:

  • The pros & cons of teaching Chinese students piano.
  • What are Chinese parents & expat parents like in China?
  • How to deal with Chinese employers and what they are looking for.
  • The education system and political situation in China and how it affects music/piano teachers.
  • The best way to secure a working visa in China.
  • Anything else you want to discuss related to piano teaching or working/living/traveling in China as a foreigner.
QUICK TIP: You won’t be able to live without a VPN if you decide to move to China!

Ready to move? Here are the helps I can provide you:

  • Find out about the teaching rates of the region you’re interested in relocating in China, so you don’t undercharge.
  • The essential tools you need to live in China.
  • Read and Translate your Chinese contract to English, so you don’t get f*ck over.
  • Need a piano at home? I can connect you to a trustworthy piano rental contact in Shanghai, too.
  • Provide you trustworthy housing agents contacts in Shanghai (and tips on how to deal with them.)
  • Other assistance


  • I worked in Shanghai as a piano teacher for 2.5 years (2016 ~ 2019), and I’m super (yes, super) fluent in both Mandarin Chinese & English.
  • I’m NOT a job placement agent. I’m simply here to help you to make a smooth transition into your new adventure in China, as well as giving you no-bullshit advice on everything that’s related to living in the country. If you’re serious about relocating to China, it’s best if you do your own research and bring your questions/material to the session. The experience is ultimately yours!
