I am Purwati Sundjojo or Wati, the ONE teacher and founder of MyOneMusic(MOM)Studio.

My teaching philosophy is inspired by Maestro Claudio Arrau who said "I look upon teaching as a moral obligation. I feel it is my duty to pass what was given to me. What I give, I do it with great love".

I always believe that the opportunity for creativity is endless. Teaching becomes a voyage to seek those possibilities and to concentrate on delivering the methods and tools for my students, hence keeping my lessons engaged and entertaining.

Throughout my teaching years, I have learned as much from my students as they have learned from me. I am always open to my students' perspectives during their learning journey and I am constantly inspired to stay up to date on the latest teaching resources and methodology.

 

My goal is to keep the learning motivation rolling as I believe that "a student is almost always motivated to practice if he leaves his lessons feeling capable", a quote from Frances Clark which stays true to me till this day.

As a Piano Performance and Music Psychology graduate of Indiana University Jacobs School of Music*, I was mentored by renowned concert pianist and composer Dr. Alfonso Montecino (1924-2015) and pianist Mrs. Luba Edlina Dubinsky of The Borodin Trio. 

But it was Dr. David Yeomans, a great pedagogue and pianist at Washington State University, and a student of Gyorgy Sandor, who first noticed my potential in music. Every student needs a teacher to believe in them.

I am truly grateful for my teachers' discipline, generosity, unceasing guidance and encouragement that had made me who I am today ...
