Miss Jin Loh is an experienced music performer, a free lance music arranger and an experienced music educator in Malaysia.

She is now devoting most of her time in teaching students how to play flute and sharing her music knowledge with her students. Miss. Jin Loh enjoys teaching and has been teaching music for more than 12 years.

She is a Classical, Jazz and Contemporary flute instructor/teacher in Malaysia. Miss Jin Loh conducts flute lessons in Bangsar, Damansara Height, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI), Bandar Utama Damansara, Sri Hartamas, Mont Kiara, Petaling Jaya (P.J) and other Kuala Lumpur areas in Malaysia.

Miss Jin Loh started teaching while she was still pursuing her music in tertiary level. Professional orchestral players, surgeons, doctors, datuks, lawyers, businessman, professional adults, music teachers and young children learn to play the flute from Miss Jin Loh.

Miss Jin Loh teaches students of all nationalities. She is the flute teacher/instructor for expatriates from Korea, Japan, France, United Kingdom (U.K), United States (U.S), Australia, Canada, China, Hong Kong, India and other countries.

Majority of Miss Jin Loh's students are Japanese and Korean students because Miss Jin Loh speaks Japanese. She is fluent in English, Japanese, Mandarin, Cantonese and Malay.

Miss Jin Loh is also the flute teacher/instructor for students from the International Schools for example, The International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), Gaden International School (GIS), British International School of Kuala Lumpur (BSKL), Mont' Kiara International School (M'KIS) and Alice Smith International School (KLASS). Most of her students were from International schools and private schools in Kuala Lumpur.

Music is Miss. Jin Loh's passion. She tried to learn and play as many musical instruments to continue to expand her music horizon.

Miss Jin Loh plays and teaches 6 musical instruments. She plays the Piano, Flute, Electone (Electric Organ), Cello, Vocal (singing) and Guzheng 古箏 (Chinese instrument).

Miss Jin Loh's music lessons are one to one basis. Her students therefore, get full concentration in class from her. Apart from listening whether the music sounds good, especially young students, Miss Jin Loh always pay extra attention on students' hand shape or techniques in class. Right/correct hand shape is very important because young children hands or fingers are still growing and fragile. Therefore if a child always plays the music instrument using the wrong techniques or hand shape, it might cause their fingers to grow slightly abnormal, slightly apart or side ways.

Miss Jin Loh's relationships with her students are like friends. Her students age ranged from 4 1/2 years old - 68 years old. To the younger students, Ms. Jin Loh is like their sister and friend. Sometimes, they would tell their problems to Miss Jin Loh and seek her advice.

Miss Jin Loh does not only teach her students to play a musical instrument, Miss Jin Loh is more concerned on her students' personal development and attitude.

Miss Jin Loh believes that learning music is to learn to become a better human being. Students learn about 'responsibility' and 'punctuality' by remembering their class time, to complete their home works on time and to practice their instrument after each lesson. Besides, students also learn about 'patience' and 'discipline' in their music classes because repetition is an important factor in mastering an instrument.

Students would realize that to be successful in anything they do whether in music or in their life, they need to be discipline and patience. Most importantly, never give up on anything easily. Of course, it will be great that along the way, one also master the musical instrument.

ピアノとフルートの音楽教師ミス・ジン (Miss Jin Loh)


〜子どもにあった正しい教育法で〜 


ピアノ、フルート、編曲など音楽分野で活発に活躍している女性がクアラルンプールにいる。Jin Loh(通称:ジン)さんだ。

ジーンさんは、英国のウェストミンスター大学で音楽学士を取得。その後、ピアノやフルート、音楽理論をクアラルンプールで教えて続けている。すでに音楽教師としての経歴は7年以上。クラシックやジャズの演奏方法を教えており、マレーシアではあまりこういった音楽教師は見つからない。ジャズ和音の読み方や演奏、即興演奏の仕方も教えている。また、初心者からイギリスグレードコースでも教えている。生徒はインターナショナル・スクールに通っている子が多く、国籍はさまざまだが、日本人と韓国人の生徒が多い。ジンさんは日本人の生徒には日本語で教えている。

ジンさんの生徒には子どもから大人までさまざまな人がいるが、生徒の中でも特に子どもに教える際は、十分に気を使っている。というのも、正しい演奏法とテクニックを幼いうちに身に付けることが重要だからだ。とりわけ、若いうちは手や指がまだ成長過程にあるため、正しい演奏を身に付けさせることに集中する。以前にほかの音楽教師についた後、ジンさんのところに移ってきた生徒の中には、正しい演奏法を身に付けていないために骨が正しく成長していなかった例があり、音楽教師としてジンさんを悲しませる結果ともなった。こういった事態を防ぐためにも、ジンさんはしっかりとした教授法で、正しい演奏法に力を入れている。

また、クラシックやジャズの演奏方法のほかにも音楽理論も教えており、音楽を基本から勉強したい人にもうってつけだ。

ジーンさんは編曲家としても活躍。「2005年中国ポップ音楽作曲大会」でトップ10に入ったほか、アルバム「Journey to the Temple」や「Love, Kindness & Forgiveness」などをこれまでに制作している。ホテルなどで演奏家としても活躍中だ。 ピアノやフルート、音楽理論を真剣に習ってみたい人は、ジンさんに早速連絡してみよう。 Email: JinLohMusic@gmail.com
