Dr Lee seeks to share her love for classical music beyond imparting music competence to her students. Her desire is to create an approach for teaching piano and classical music that enables her students of all ages to cultivate an appreciation and enjoyment of classical music in a developmentally appropriate environment.

Dr Lee's education and teaching experiences in the US has led her to develop a highly unique approach for early childhood music programs where classical music is used in conjunction with the music education philosophies of renowned music educators such as Carl Orff, Dalcroze, Suzuki and Kodály. Through innovative lessons that include dancing, singing and playing to the accompaniment of lively classical music compositions, children develop a listening ear at a young age and at the same time, pick up musical skills and concepts that will serve as a valuable foundation for more advanced musical development.

Dr Lee Pei Ming is teaching at Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music, National University of Singapore (NUS).
