Hello, my name is Rosa. I am a pastor and church pianist for Christian Disciples Church in Hong Kong for over 30 years. I perform at my church at least twice a week and you always see me playing beautiful music at church on Fridays and Sundays. On the side, I also teach English as a hobby.

I graduated from University of British Columbia and received my teaching certificate specializing in Chemistry and teaching English as a second language. I taught public schools in Canada for a couple of years and then went on to study theology at Ontario Theological Seminary in Toronto. I received my Master's program in Christian Theological Ministry and started full time ministry with my husband. Our calling as pastors and missionaries brought us to deeper intensive Pastoral Counselling and Discipleship Training at Christian Disciples Church. Presently we pastor together in a local church in Tsuen Wan and have been ministering to this same congregation for almost 20 years.

Over the years, we have gone on missions to Mongolia, Sydney, Nepal, India and expedition trips to the Holy Lands: Israel, Greece and Turkey. Wherever we went, I found myself taking up the music ministry and became the church pianist for that church. It has been a wonderful experience for me to serve not only as a pastor but as a church pianist in the music ministry.

As a result of my passion in playing piano, I started developing my piano courses online since 2008. The piano courses are very unique because I was finally willing to share my unique piano method called: Color Chord Improvisation Method known as CCI. This piano method is easy, fun and creative that you learn to play piano not only from music score sheets, but to play chords from fake books and eventually to play by ear. You are welcome to visit me online at my piano website at Learn Piano With Rosa: http://www.LearnPianoWithRosa.com. I sometimes hold piano workshops for my students and train church pianists.

Because of my education and expertise in teaching, my students love my piano courses and found it easy and fun to play piano. Ever since teaching piano online in 2008, I have met hundreds and hundreds of students all over the world joining my courses. You can read their testimonies on my website. They have given me so much joy as I watch their piano dreams come true.

For this reason, I want to make my courses more and more available on the net so that it is easy for my students to access my courses on their mobile devices and tablets. Come and join my hundreds of students to play piano in a fun and creative way.

Enjoy your piano journey with me as much as I have created these innovative online piano courses for you.
