Junbo Zhou believes singing is not only a skill, but also an attitude towards life, a way of thinking, a method to express, and a companion along the journey. Through singing, people discover themselves; through listening, people understand each other: singing brings people together. Based on these beliefs, Junbo’s class won’t only be focusing on singing techniques, but also on keeping and developing student’s passion, discovery and communication. Junbo will work with student’s goal and prepare lessons accordingly.
